Lithonia, Ga.--A standout at Miller Grove High School, 6-3, 223 outside linebacker Caleb Tannor already had offers from Georgia Southern, Maryland, Memphis, Rutgers, Southern Miss, Western Kentucky and several others before taking a pair of trips recently to see the Auburn Tigers on the practice field.
Spending much of his time with Auburn assistant coaches Rodney Garner and Travis Williams while also watching the team go through a spring practice, Tannor got an offer from the Tigers and said he really enjoyed seeing the team in action.
“Practice was great,” Tannor said. “It was high intensity. They were always moving around."
As for the Auburn offer, he said it puts the Tigers in the mix right away.
“They are definitely up there in my list of choices,” he said following the visit.
Being recruited to play the buck linebacker position in Auburn’s defense, Tannor has the frame to get bigger and stronger with still another year left to play high school ball. Seeing how the Tigers use the position, he said
"I liked how the practice was fast and very well controlled," Tanner said of his Saturday scrimmage visit. "He (Garner) said that he plays freshmen so if I come in ready to work I will play."
As a junior Tannor made 60 tackles with seven sacks, two safeties, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
