Offensive Lineman Gives Visit A "10"

This South Florida offensive tackle talks about his official visit to Auburn.

Miami, Fla.--Offensive tackle prospect Simon Codrington of South Miami Senior High School in Miami says that his visit to Auburn this weekend was a great experience.

"I give it a 10," he says. "I really enjoyed it. They showed me some very nice Southern hospitality and I really enjoyed myself."

The 6-7, 260-pound lineman with a huge frame is being recruited by running backs coach Eddie Gran and was hosted during his visit by a player with the same physical build. "Marcus McNeill was my player host and he showed me a really good time," Codrington says. "He's a really good person and I felt I could bond with him."
