Big Georgia Lineman Has Visited AU Twice

An offensive line prospect for the next signee class discusses his interest in Auburn football.

Franklin, Ga.--Heard County High School offensive lineman Jason Vise is one of the prospects who had a good day in one-on-one drills at the Atlanta Combine.

The 6-5, 289-pounder is getting interest from a variety of colleges for 2007, including the Auburn Tigers.

"I really like the Auburn program," he says. "The program is really going up. I like Coach (head coach Tommy) Tuberville's, Coach (offensive line coach Hugh) Nall's and Coach (offensive coordinator Al) Borges' offense. It is really moving up in the last couple of years getting better and better.

"Auburn has amazing facilities and I like the people there. Everybody around the campus is really nice. I went there when there was a baseball game the same day and everybody was really nice to me."

Vise is expected to start for a third straight season this fall. He plays right guard on offense and defensive tackle. "I think most colleges are interested in me as an offensive tackle because of my height," he says.

Vise, who says that he has a 3.0, recently took the SAT for the first time and says he felt like he scored well. He also tries to score in wrestling, track and field and basketball, but says his primary sport is football.

"In college I probably want to do sports medicine or something like that," says Vise, who plans to attend a summer football camp at Auburn. "I am also going to a camp for linemen at Carson-Newman and I will probably go to several others. I am not sure yet."

Vise, who visited Auburn twice this spring to check out practices, took in a game last fall at Duke and says he likes the Blue Devils and their campus in Durham. He has interest in other ACC and SEC programs as well as he waits for his first offer.
