Prospect Has Good Time On His Visit To AU

A football prospect gives his assessment of his weekend in Auburn.

Montgomery, Ala.--Carver High's Eric Robinson says his official visit to Auburn this weekend couldn't have been much better.

"It was a perfect 10," he told Inside the Auburn Tigers. "It was just a great visit. The people I met there couldn't have been any nicer."

Robinson says that Auburn is his strong leader, but he is not ready to commit. "I may just wait until signing day before I announce anything," he says. He was considering a visit to Southern Miss this week, but hasn't decided what he will do.

Freshman safety Eric Brock was his player host and Robinson says he enjoyed getting to know Brock and another Auburn freshman, defensive end Marquis Gunn. Both Gunn and Brock played high school football at Benjamin Russell in Alexander City.

Robinson says his player host and the Tigerettes and Tiger Hosts kept him busy on his official visit. Robinson says that he is interested in majoring in electrical engineering and the tour of those facilities was one of the highlights of the visit. "I know Auburn has a great engineering program," he says. "They are doing a lot of interesting things in the program there."

Robinson rushed 125 times as a senior for 763 yards and eight touchdowns. He saw limited duty on defense and had one interception as a senior.

Robinson, who says he runs the 40-yard dash well under 4.5 seconds, adds that he also enjoyed spending time with head coach Tommy Tuberville. "He sat down and talked to me about what he expects from his football players at Auburn," he says. "He expects them to follow the rules and not cause any problems. He is a very family oriented guy and he wants players in the program that fit in with that. I could really tell that from being around the players and others for the weekend. There is a lot of love there for Auburn and I could really tell that."
