Big Receiver Enjoys Auburn Camp

While there were nearly 500 campers on hand for Auburn's final summer camp of the year, it was easy to spot one of the South's top receivers in the bunch and he says that his visit to Auburn puts the Tigers in the hunt.

Hollywood, Fla.--One of the South's top wide receivers put his talents on display Saturday at Auburn's last summer football camp of the year and he says the trip was one that cemented Auburn in his mind as a college to keep an eye on as he heads into his senior season.

Big Kamar Aiken from Chaminade-Madonna Prep School has offers from all over the country and that's not surprising after showing his ability as a junior despite playing in a run-oriented offense. A four-star player as rated by Scout.com, the 6-2, 203 Aiken caught just 10 passes for 128 yards in 2005 but four were for touchdowns. He also added 50 tackles on defense as a safety.

With colleges from all over looking at him, Aiken says that he doesn't have any favorites at the moment but three schools are beginning to emerge for him. "I'm still open to everybody," Aiken says. "I have 23 offers. The most recent came from Nebraska. The three officials I have right now are Auburn, Florida and Florida State. I don't have any dates set yet."

Kamar Aiken is a player who could play receiver or even safety on the next level.

Working with Auburn receivers coach Greg Knox along with several of the top campers, Aiken was clearly one of the best receivers on hand as he worked through drills and then in one-on-one situations with the defensive backs. In his first trip to Auburn, Aiken says that he enjoyed everything about the camp.

"It was a nice atmosphere. We didn't get to see much of it because it's the summer, but I think I'm going to go back up there and take an official visit.

"There was good competition there," Aiken adds. "It's always fun to go against top competition. I look forward to it. I think I did all right."

Already deep into summer workouts, Chaminade-Madonna is looking for nothing less than a state championship was as many as 10 players possibly receiving college scholarships off the team this season. One of those is teammate Eain Smith. A 6-0, 180 safety, Smith is up to 20 offers and is looking hard at the Tigers as well. Smith joined his teammate for the trip to Auburn's football camp.
