Prospect Sidell Corley Visits Auburn

McGill-Toolen's Sidell Corley is a national Top 100 football prospect who visited Auburn over the weekend.

Mobile, Ala.--"The visit to Auburn went pretty good yesterday," said Sidell Corley, a junior defensive end prospect from McGill-Toolen High School.

"Coach (James) Willis told me before the weekend that he knew they had a lot of ground to make up.

"They did make up a lot of ground. Auburn and LSU were battling for my fifth spot before this weekend. Auburn has taken my fifth spot now. My other favorites are Alabama, Florida, Notre Dame and Ole Miss. I don't have any particular order."

Corley spent time talking with and observing Auburn's defensive end Quentin Groves.

"Quentin was telling me how the defensive ends play and how they prepare you for the NFL. I watched him the whole time during practice. He told me to ignore all the hype and to stay humble. He said next year I would be a freshman. I need to walk in and stay humble. He told me I need to stay focused on my grades as well."

The Auburn unofficial visit was a success, and Corley met his recruiting coach as well.

"The visit with all the coaches went pretty good," he said. "I talked to Coach (Will) Muschamp, Coach (Tommy) Tuberville and Coach (James) Willis. Coach Willis is my recruiting coach. He is trying to get used to the Auburn program. He is real cool. He said he wouldn't put any pressure on me."

Corley will take a break next weekend, but will head to Mississippi State March 25 and Florida April 1.

He will participate in the All-American Combine in Tuscaloosa April 29.
