Wide Receiver Prospect Selects Tigers

Auburn has added another football commitment. This talented in-state star tells why he will be a Tiger.

Wadley, Ala.--Wadley High star receiver Terrell Zachery is the 13th public verbal for the 2006 signee class.

Zachary told Inside the Auburn Tigers on Sunday that he is excited about the opportunity to play for the Tigers.

He says he considered Alabama, Florida and Georgia, but likes the opportunity at Auburn with three of AU's key receivers being seniors.

"I think I will have a chance to play at Auburn as freshman," says receiver, who is also a star basketball player at the school. "I hope I made the right decision. I think I did."

Zachery's team is unbeaten and ranked number in class A. "We are 5-0 now and things are going really well."

As a junior he caught 53 passes for 1,400 yards while earning All-State honors and added more than 500 rushing yards. He caught 16 touchdown passes and ran for 10 more.

Zachery says he isn't certain what his current statistics are, but notes he is 6-1, 185 pounds and his best 40 times are under 4.5. He was a standout at an Auburn summer camp.

"I grew up an Alabama fan, but I think Auburn is the best place for me," he says. "I thought about this decision real, real hard. I really think I am making the right decision."

Zachery was a standout this summer at a two-day camp on the Auburn campus prior to his senior season.

As a junior, the four-year starter in football also earned All-State status in basketball as he averged 24.7 points and 11.3 rebounds per game.

Zachery says he considers his speed as his best attribute in football. "I think the thing that I need to work on for college is getting stronger," he says.

His team will look to improve its record to 6-0 next week vs. Jacksonville Christian.

Zachery says he isn't certain when he will take his official visit to Auburn.
