Standout DE Quinn Talks Auburn Visit

South Carolina prospect Robert Quinn talks about his official visit to Auburn.

North Charleston, S.C.--One of the country's top defensive end prospects took an official visit to Auburn over the weekend and he says the trip was everything he had hoped it would be.

Fort Dorchester's Robert Quinn is a four-star prospect and the number 18 defensive end in the country according to Scout.com. A big, physical prospect at 6-4, 255, Quinn visited Auburn for the second time and says it was good to get back on the campus and see everything once again.

"It was a good visit," Quinn says. "I was glad to get back up there. I'm trying to narrow it down and make this decision. I just wanted to get an overall feel before I make it. I enjoyed everything up there."

Hosted by freshman safety Zac Etheridge, Quinn says getting to know many of the current players was one of the biggest things for him about the visit. "That's who you're going to be around as a player, that's your family. You might as well get to know them early.

"Just getting to know some of the players because that's who I'm going to be with," Quinn says was his favorite part of the visit. "Just getting to know the players and seeing the coaches again as well as my family getting to see it one more time so they can help me make my decision."

A question mark for the Tigers is who is going to be the next defensive coordinator? That would seem like it would be a big deal for someone like Quinn, but he says as long as his position Coach Terry Price is around, he knows what the Auburn defense will be doing.

"They said they weren't changing anything so I guess it really shouldn't even matter," Quinn says. "They said the defense won't be changing."

Having already visited Alabama, many said that Quinn was a lean to the Crimson Tide following his visit. Quinn says that's not the case at all and he's divided pretty equally between three schools at the moment.

"I don't have a leader," Quinn says. "It's going to be out the blue after we sit down and talk about it. Everybody was saying that, but I'm not saying that. If it was I guess I would have already signed. I liked them, but I like Auburn and North Carolina too. I'll make that decision after I take my last visit.

"Out of those three schools I feel everything is about the same," he adds. "I guess it's just going to be an overall feeling about the school. That's the biggest part."

With no timetable set for his decision, Quinn says he has one final visit to make before he begins to narrow down even more. With dozens of offers from around the country, Quinn says it's just three final schools for him in what will be a tough decision to make.

"North Carolina will probably be the last one I've got," Quinn says. "I took the Alabama one already. Yes sir it's between those three. It will be just a feeling. My parents will help me out with it so that way I can make sure I make the right decision because I've got to be there three or four or five years."
