AU Offers South Florida Prospect

A talented prospect discusses recruiting and his interest in the Auburn Tigers.

Miami, Fla.--Versatile Malcolm Munroe is a football prospect whose stock is rising.

Auburn is one of the colleges that has taken notice of the 6-4, 205-pounder from Coral Reef High School and offered him a scholarship.

"I have got about 13 or 14 offers," says Munroe, who notes that Georgia Tech, Florida and Central Florida are the early favorites of the player whose brother, Dorian Munroe, plays for the Florida Gators.

A two-year starter in high school, the class of 2008 senior has lined up on both sides of the football. "I have played almost everything--defensive end, defensive tackle, linebacker, cornerback and safety and on offense I played tight end. My best position would be linebacker or safety. This year I will be playing defensive end and linebacker."

Munroe says he currently stands six-foot-three and weighs in at 205 pounds. His goal is to get bigger, faster and stronger as a senior at Coral Reef High. "I am going to try to get my body to 215 or 220 and get my 40 time down to a 4.4," he says.

Commenting on his best attributes as a football player, Munroe says, "My speed and play-making ability along with my desire and passion. I never give up on a play. There were numerous times last season when I chased the play and caught people from behind. I love the game and I play hard."

Munroe says his best 40-time is 4.5 and his best track time is a 22.9 in the 200 meters. "I have always been fast, but I work on it anyway," he says. "I was always fast going back to elementary school and middle school."

A player who made's All-Combine team in Miami this year, Munroe says he is looking forward to his senior season. "I think our team will have a much better year. We are more focused, more together. I have a good feeling about this year."

Commenting on his goals, he says, "As a senior I want to try to go to the state championship as a team. Individually, I want to get bigger, stronger and faster and get my body ready for college, make good grades and enjoy my senior year."

Munroe says he is interested in studying bio-technology or sports medicine in college. One of the colleges that has caught his attention is Auburn.

"I am definitely interested in the Tigers," he says. "They were the only team to beat the national champions and it was good. Auburn had a very intriguing year. A coach from Auburn came by our school to scout me."
