'Only Time Will Tell,' Football Prospect Says

This prospect talks about where he stands in the recruiting process.

Adamsville, Ala.--Dee McClure said that he is no longer a commitment to the Auburn Tigers, but strangely he also said that his visit to Florida State this weekend didn't play a role in that decision.

"Me not being committed to Auburn didn't have anything to do the official visit," he said. "That was before the official visit," added McClure, who was one of Auburn's earliest verbal commitments.

However, the 5-11, 185-pound defensive back from Minor High School said he was not interested in going into further details about why he changed his mind about the Tigers. "It is a long story," McClure said.

McClure also noted that he is now planning on making his decision on Wednesday. "I am going to make my decision on signing day at 10 o'clock at my school," he said. "Yeah, it is just between Auburn and Florida State."

However, with Auburn getting close to running out of scholarship slots, there is no guarantee that the Tigers will still have room for McClure after picking up four verbal commitments on Sunday with the possibility of more to follow before signing day.

As for his decision making process, McClure said that he plans on keeping the process as quick and painless as possible. "Right now I am just chillin'. I am not even going to think about it anymore until Tuesday. That is when I am going to start back. This has been kind of stressful."

The talented defensive back said that one of the things that stood out about his weekend was spending time with the Seminoles' defensive coordinator. "Coach (Mickey) Andrews, he was driving me around and he was talking to me while we were in the car and he was letting me in on depth charts and what he thought about me and telling me a lot of good stuff," McClure said.

With only a couple of days left until national signing day, McClure says that he is not very sure where he now stands. "I don't feel like I am completely out with Auburn. Only time will tell."
