Dellenbach Impressed by Auburn

An Auburn University football recruiting report is featured.

Coconut Creek, Fla.--Dax Dellenbach notes that a scholarship offer and a good visit to Auburn over the weekend have the Tigers as his favorite.

A 6-1, 220-pound senior from North Broward Prep, he played tight end and defensive end this past season, but his offer to play for the Tigers is as a deep snapper. "That is something I have been working on since my freshman year," he says.

"I liked seeing everything I saw on my visit to Auburn and I met a bunch of the players," he says. "Patrick Tatum was my player host. He is a lot of fun. I just hung out with the players, saw everything and I got to meet everyone. It is a beautiful place."

Commenting on recruiting, Dellenbach says, "I believe I have Wisconsin lined up this next weekend. Auburn has offered a scholarship and Wisconsin is trying to get something in the works, but I am not too sure I am worried about that. I am going to talk to my parents and Auburn might be the place where I go to college." He adds that Central Florida, Rutgers and Pitt have also expressed interest in having him join their teams.

Commenting on Auburn, he says, "I was blown away by the facilities and everyone was as nice as they could be."

The son of 15-year National Football League veteran Jeff Dellenbach, who played with the Eagles, Packers, Dolphins and Patriots, his dad was a center and deep snapper.

The high school senior says it has been a positive having a dad as a former NFL player. "Yes, it is," notes. "He knows what it takes. He is not the type of person to push if you don't want to do something, but if he sees it is something you may want to do he will take you aside and ask you and if it is something you want to do. If it is he will help push you and make you the best you can be at it. He has helped a lot."

Dellenbach notes that as a high school senior he is still growing. "I am hoping to get to six-foot-four."
