Prospect Checks Out AU Campus Life

One of Auburn's official visitors for the final weekend prior to national signing day comments on his weekend on the Plains.

Wadley, Ala.--Terrell Zachery, a receiver prospect who has been committed to the Tigers since Oct. 2, took his first official visit on the last weekend possible and says he had a good time at Auburn.

"I hung out with Jerraud Powers, Courtney Taylor and Quentin Groves," Zachery notes. "We went to a couple of parties and just had fun. Just hung out and had fun. It was all that I expected. I had a great time."

By getting the pressures of recruiting out of the way early in the process Zachery has been able to turn his attention to academics in hopes of contributing for the Tigers next season. He says that he's still working on his ACT score and also been playing basketball for Wadley High School where he's putting up big numbers.

"I think I average about 25 points per game and 10 rebounds," he notes. "We're 9-8."

Zachery's player host was freshman cornerback Powers on Friday and Taylor on Saturday. He notes that the highlight of his visit was touring the campus and spending time at the stadium.

"Saturday night going into the locker room and having my jersey and having the cleats and everything hanging up," he says. "We got to put on jerseys and go out on the field.

"I also got to see the college life and hang out with the players--just taking a tour of the campus, not just the sports part, but the academics and all of that."

Zachery, who had 1,500 yards receiving this season, says that his mom had a great time in Auburn as well and gave the overall visit a nine.
