Dailey Hearing From SEC Programs

A football recruiting report is featured on Sean Dailey, an in-state prospect who is the son of a former Auburn University standout defensive player. Dailey is expected to be a three-year starter this fall for his high school team.

Trussville, Ala.--An in-state football player hoping to make a name for himself as a college prospect his senior year is Hewitt-Trussville High's Sean Dailey, who participated in Auburn's two-day football camp in June.

The six-foot-two, 250-pounder is expected to start for a third straight year. He played offensive tackle as a sophomore and moved to defensive end in spring training of his junior year. This fall, he expects to line up at noseguard or defensive tackle in his team's 4-3 alignment.

Dailey, who played in the Alabama High School Athletic Association Junior All-Star Game last December at Troy University, is the son of former Auburn defensive end John Dailey, a three-year letterman and a very productive player for Coach Pat Dye's teams, including the 1983 SEC champions.

Sean Dailey

Dailey hasn't received any offers from SEC programs yet, but is on their radar. "I am getting letters from Auburn, Alabama, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt," Dailey says.

"I liked the Auburn camp a lot," adds Dailey, who notes he learned some good tips for rushing the passer.

Last season Dailey concentrated on football, but also plans to wrestle as a senior, something he did for Hewitt-Trussville as a sophomore.

In football he is working this summer to get ready for his senior season and has attended camps at Mississippi State and Alabama. Dailey runs well for a lineman with a best clocking of 4.9 in the 40-yard dash. He ran a 4.97 40 at Auburn's camp, making him one of the faster big guys at the event.

While his quickness is good, when asked what he believes is his best asset on the football field, Dailey says, "I would say my strength is my advantage."
