Auburn High DE Keeping An Open Mind

Defensive end prospect Brandon Boudreaux discusses his combine performance and recuiting.

Auburn, Ala.--Auburn High School defensive end Brandon Boudreaux is an athletic prospect to keep an eye on as the recruiting process develops.

He didn't have any offers before the recent combine in Tuscaloosa, but that should change over the summer after posting impressive numbers.

"I got the chance to come out and get my real test and do the shuttle, 40, broad jump and vertical," Boudreaux says of the combine. "I was very happy with where I stand. My broad jump was a 9-8. My vertical was a 35-5. My 40 was a 4.75 and my three-cone drill was a 7.69."

The two numbers that stand out the most were his 4.75 40 and a very impressive 35-5 vertical leap for a player who checked in at 6-1 and 215 pounds. He also posted impressive numbers on the football field as a junior, filling up the stat sheet.

"This year I had nine sacks, two forced fumbles, 12 quarterback hurries, 60 (solo) tackles, 20 assists and one blocked kick on special teams," Boudreaux notes.

Boudreaux didn't take part in Auburn's spring scrimmage last Friday, but was all smiles as he watched his teammates perform.

Living just a few miles from the Auburn University campus Boudreaux says that he likes the Tigers, but he isn't keeping his options narrowed to big-time programs.

"I'm pretty much an Auburn fan, but sometimes I cheer for Troy and some of the small schools to make a name for themselves," he says. "During football season we took a trip down to Troy during their football season to check out their campus. I was impressed with their facilities. They've come a long way since the last time I went down there."

So far Boudreaux has drawn interest from schools in several conferences around the country including the ACC, SEC, Big East, Sun Belt and Ivy League.
