High Profile Recruit Impressed With AU's Recruits

This bluechip football prospect discusses his weekend at Auburn.

Montgomery, Ala.--Auburn looks to be in good shape to have a chance to sign the state of Alabama's top-rated recruit following his official visit to Auburn.

Tommy Trott, a tight end from Trinity Presbyterian in Montgomery, gave his official visit to Auburn high marks.

"It was a whole lot of fun," the Gatorade Player of the Year for Alabama says. "I got to hang out with a lot of the players, the coaches, the recruits. I really liked the guys who were at Auburn on the visit. I think that Auburn is building a special recruiting class. I enjoyed having the chance to get to know a lot of the players."

Recruited by players across the country, the son of former Auburn football player Marvin Trott was scheduled to visit Miami for his final visit, but is not expected to make the trip south. He was accompanied on the trip to AU by both his parents.

"I haven't made a decision yet, but I will probably make one this week," he says. Trott visited Alabama the previous weekend where his mother is an alumnus and his grandfather played football.

Tommy Trott says he likes the offense that Al Borges has installed at Auburn.

The tight end noted that Auburn was his favorite going into the visit and that hasn't changed.

"Cooper (Wallace) was my player host and he is a cool guy," Trott says. "He would be a good guy to play under with him being a senior next year he is pretty established.

"I know a pretty good number of the Auburn players and I know Bret (senior defensive end Bret Eddins) real well because I hang around with his younger brother, Bart." Bart Eddins is a junior defensive tackle who plays at Trinity Presbyterian. A junior this year, he is expected to be one of the top prospects in the state for the 2006 signee class.

Trott says the visit went well and there were no surprises. "I have been in Auburn a lot," he notes. "There wasn't much new, but it was a lot of fun."
