DB Prospect Plans to Check Out AU Home Game

Prentiss Waggner gives Inside the Auburn Tigers a recruiting update.

Clinton, La.--Cornerback prospect Prentiss Waggner of Clinton High School has his college choice narrowed to three favorites, but is still waiting on an offer from two of the schools.

He has an offer from Auburn, one of the three, and is also being recruited by the other two schools of interest--LSU and Florida.

"The Auburn coaches are real cool and the LSU coaches are real cool also," he explains. "Auburn, LSU and Florida are pretty much the top schools."

Waggner camped at both Auburn and LSU over the summer, as well as Louisiana Tech.

"I want to go to Florida for an official visit to check out one of their games," Waggner adds. "I'll be up in Auburn for a game also. Me and my aunt were talking about the Kansas State one, but I don't know if I'll be able to make that one. Out of the first five games I'll be at one of them."


Waggner was impressive with his jams at the line and overall cover ability during the Auburn camp in mid-July.

Growing up 35-45 minutes from Baton Rouge, he's already been to LSU a few times.

"The LSU camp was good and there were a lot of players I knew out there," Waggner says. "I learned a lot of things like outside man technique and things like that. As far as college, it's going to take the school, the players, the academics and just the whole environment and how well I get along with the coaches. I want to make my decision before signing day, but the only thing I'm thinking about right now is my senior season.

"I'm trying to work on my run support and basically my technique," he adds. "I can tackle well, but I'd like to get stronger in my hips so I can bring down running backs and fullbacks, things like that. It's going real good. We're looking pretty good right now and hopefully we can make a run for the state championship."

The 6-1, 175-pound corner picked off 16 passes last season as a junior. "Hopefully I can get even close to 16 this year," he jokes.
