Defensive Prospect Give Visit High Marks

The defensive prospect says the he really enjoyed his busy weekend on the Plains.

Adamsville, Ala.--Athletic cornerback Dee McClure says that he would have to rate his visit to Auburn a perfect ten and that he is still committed to the Tigers following a busy and fun weekend.

"Everything was cool", McClure, who was hosted by Tigers' defensive lineman T.J. Jackson, says. "We got there around five Friday evening. We were greeted real nice by the Tigerettes and coach (Terry) Price was there. Then we checked into the hotel room then we went back to the lobby and met with my host. Then we went out with my host and the Tigerettes to eat at Outback and then we went to a party."

The 5-11 cornerback prospect says that Friday night became quite a late night affair due to one late arrival. "I ended up going back out because Tony Bell got there kind of late because he had a basketball game," he explained. "So, me and him went back out with Junior Rosegreen and we went to IHOP and ate and then went to sleep."

McClure's father who made the trip to the plains with his son said that they both had a great experience. "We got a tour of the university and got a chance to talk with the different position coaches that he would play for, his father said. "Met with Coach (Tommy) Tuberville in his office, got to meet with him at his home. We really had a great time talking with them. We met with the staff and the chaplain (Chette Williams). I was real impressed with the spiritual aspect of what Coach Tuberville has installed at the university."

Following a late evening Friday night, the athletic defender says that he had a very busy day Saturday that included events like a tour of the school, a meeting with team chaplain Chette Williams, a tour of the athletic facilities and an afternoon at Coach Tuberville's house playing pool and watching the Senior Bowl.

McClure said the he also enjoyed the festivities at Jordan-Hare Stadium Saturday night where they all ate, toured the locker room area and got to put on their own Auburn jersey and walk out onto the field.

On his visit McClure says that he spent most of his time with a fellow defensive back recruit. "I hung out with Tony Bell, me and him hung out a lot, he says. "We had a good time at the IHOP, at the party and we were kicking it most of the time while we were touring the school."

McClure, who is planning on taking a trip to Tallahassee this upcoming weekend to check out the Florida State Seminoles, says that he just wants to have the chance to explore his options before he signs on the dotted line February 4th. "I am going to pray about it and make sure I make the right decision."
