Safety Prospect Loves Visit to Auburn

An in-state football prospect discusses his visit to check out Auburn's victory in the Iron Bowl.

McCalla, Ala.--McAdory High School quarterback and safety prospect Marcus Jemison was one of many talented recruits who attended the Iron Bowl on an unofficial visit.

"It was great," Jemison says of his trip to Auburn. "I loved it."

He also attended the Auburn versus Vanderbilt game earlier in year, but says it was completely different for a prime-time night game. "It wasn't like that," he says of the difference. "The crowd was great.

"I didn't make it to Tiger Walk because I was eating," Jemison adds. "I got there at 3-something (p.m.) and ate at 4. By the time I got done eating they were already walking in, but I caught it when they were walking down through Tiger Den (recruiting lounge)."

Jemison, at 6-2, 200 pounds, projects as a safety if he picks Auburn and is being recruited by defensive ends coach Terry Price.

"I talked to Coach Price for a couple of minutes," Jemison notes, "not long though because he had to get back to the (locker room). He was just asking if I was ready for the game."

With so many other prospects in attendance, Jemison also talked with some other Auburn recruits.

"I met a lot of them, but I already knew some of them," he says. "I talked to A.J. McCarron the (junior) quarterback from St. Paul's. I talked to Dee Finley and (Barrett) Trotter from Briarwood."

Jemison was down to Auburn, Clemson and Arkansas, however, Razorback head coach Houston Nutt resigned on Monday. Does that change anything for Jemison?

"I heard he resigned," he replies. "I can't really say right now."

Jemison is planning on taking official visits in the upcoming months to Auburn and Clemson and is uncertain about a trip to Fayetteville.
