Receiver Enjoys Weekend Visit

This receiver says that his visit to Auburn for the Alabama game went well.

Miami, Fla--Star wide receiver Devin Aromashodu from Miami Springs High School visited Auburn last weekend for the annual battle against rival Alabama and he says his trip was perfect except for the Tigers'disappointing loss in the game.

"It went good, real good," Aromashodu told Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I liked everything except the game. The atmosphere and tradition stuck with me and I also like the quarterback position with them having a young quarterback that will be there for three more years. I also think I can play early there."

Hosted on campus by redshirt freshman quarterback Jason Campbell, the speedy Aromashodu notes that he was really impressed by everything he saw while on his visit. Planning on majoring in either business or engineering in college, he says that both departments impressed him greatly when he toured them Saturday before the game.

Considering Miami, Florida, Ohio State, North Carolina State and Maryland, the 6-2, 185 Aromashodu points out that he's already taken an official visit to Michigan State for the Michigan game and has trips planned for Ohio State and North Carolina State in early December. "I'm not going to take one to Miami because I know them," he notes. He says he will likely choose between Florida and Maryland for his final visit.

Planning on making his decision sometime in December following his visits, Aromashodu is a player that schools covet because of his play-making skills. Although he was double and triple-teamed during his senior season as Miami Springs High School struggled to a 4-6 record, Aromashodu was still able to catch 23 passes for 400+-plus yards this season along with snaring an interception while playing cornerback as well. As a junior he had 27 catches for 610 yards with seven receiving touchdowns, two kick returns for scores, and one touchdown pass. He also had six interceptions on defense in part-time duty.

Tiger Ticket Extra: Aromashodu says that his visit went smoothly and he got a chance to know Campbell, something that could turn out to be a blessing for the Tigers. "I liked him a lot," Aromashodu notes. "He was real nice and we got along great." …A player in the mold of former Auburn star Frank Sanders, Aromashodu says that he likes to outjump defenders for the ball as well as run by them. "I've got good speed so I use that to my advantage," he notes. "If we're even I know I'm going to get the ball because I have a 42"-inch vertical leap so I can usually jump and get the ball."
