Tigers Lead For In-State Defensive Back

This defensive back prospect says that Auburn is the early leader for his signature come February.

Rico Albert is a star defensive back for the 6A powerhouse, Prattville Lions, who now holds three scholarship offers.

"I have offers from Kentucky, Southern Miss, and Auburn," Albert said. "Auburn offered me a few weeks ago."

Albert admits the Tigers have always been a favorite. "It's great," he said. "I have always been an Auburn fan. I would say that Auburn is my leader. I have been to the school several times, and I really like it."

The Prattville defensive back said he will consider a few other schools before making his decision, however.

"I am considering Alabama, Southern Miss, and Kentucky," Albert said. "I really don't know when I will decide."

The 5-10, 170-pounder has not attended any camps, but plans to hit a few this month.

"I am going to Auburn on the 17th, and I will be going to Florida State this weekend."
