"Bad" Visit To Auburn

This in-state prospect talks about his weekend visit to Auburn to watch the Tigers scrimmage.

Trussville, Ala.--Hewitt-Trussville running back Rico Sharpe took an unofficial visit to Auburn last weekend, and he talks of the 'bad' experience on the Plains.

"The visit was bad. It was real bad," said Rico Sharpe from Trussville, (Ala.). "Bad meaning it was really good. It was a really good visit.

"The coaches let us go on the practice field while the players were warming up. I talked to a few of the players. It was all good."

Sharpe enjoyed practice, and he toured other areas of the complex as well.

"The practice was intense," he said. "It was very intense. I liked watching them scrimmage. I saw the locker room, the weight room and the coaches offices. I liked everything I saw.

"I really like Auburn a lot. They have a lot of symbols at their school that I like a lot. The walls are made of broken bricks, and somewhere in the building is the matching brick. It's hard to explain. They have this big painting of Alabama in the film room. The football players sit in front of it meaning that Alabama should always be in the back of your mind. I liked that."

Sharpe will compete in a track meet this weekend and will return to the Plains next weekend for the A-Day game.
