Scott Talks About Visit To Auburn

Burton Scott discusses his official visit to Auburn.

Mobile, Ala.--After an official visit to Auburn this weekend, receiver/defensive back prospect Burton Scott tells Inside the Auburn Tigers that he is still firmly committed to Alabama.

Scott camped at Auburn over the summer and is friends with Auburn's Sen'Derrick Marks, an old teammate from Vigor High School. Freshman safety Michael McNeil was Scott's player host.

"It went good," Scott says. "I had fun. I hung out with everybody.

"I had a chance to see the classrooms and stuff," Scott adds. "I had a chance to get my mom and dad up there to see it. I got a chance to meet everybody again and got to meet with the coach from Troy (Tony Franklin).

Franklin was hired in December as Auburn's offensive coordinator. Prior to his hiring, Auburn was recruiting Scott as a defensive back.

"He's a good guy," Scott says of Franklin, who consults with high schools across the country. "He just went over the stuff that he wanted me to do on offense. I asked him if he ran Hoover's offense. He's the same guy that ran Hoover's offense and he was just showing me stuff of how he thinks he could get me the ball. I enjoyed my visit there. I was listening to stuff he was saying. For the most part I just enjoyed myself and had a good time."

When asked if Auburn is now recruiting him as a receiver, Scott responded, "Yeah."

Does that change things any? "Nah."

Does it help Auburn's case? "Nah."

You're still firmly committed to Alabama? "Yeah."

Scott took his official to Alabama on Dec. 7 and plans to use all five. "I've got like three more visits," Scott notes. "I don't have the calendar. My coach (Kerry Stevenson) has the calendar. Ole Miss, Florida (Jan 18.) and Miami (Jan. 15)."
