Texas LB Visits Auburn

Beaumont, Texas–Ozen High School linebacker Justin Isadore got an offer in early March from Auburn and recently received offer No. 2 from another SEC school, Kentucky.

Isadore's had a relatively quiet spring on the recruiting front, but was able to take a visit to Auburn on his way home from his brother's wedding in Florida. He didn't get to see the Tigers practice, but his recruiting coach, Greg Knox, showed Isadore and his family around the facilities.

"It's amazing down there," Isadore says of Auburn. "They're having to redo a lot of the facilities around there, but it's still amazing to me. What really impressed me the most was the academic center. It's an academic/athletic complex where you study at and go to study hall. That really impressed me. He (Knox) showed me the classrooms and where they watch film. That's crazy. It's insane. Everything is computerized and you can turn on the lights with the computer.

"He said I could graduate before I even play a down my senior year," he adds. "That really stood out to me. He also introduced to some of the players, a receiver and a couple of the running backs, who were studying."

Isadore has been getting interest from schools all over the country, but Auburn is the only visit he has made this spring.

"I was going to go back down there for their spring game, but I didn't have a chance to make it," he notes.

Auburn and Kentucky were the first two to offer the 5-11, 200-pound linebacker, but he's also hearing from "Cal, Arizona, Baylor, TCU, Kansas State and Stanford. Auburn stands out. I'd also say Cal... and Kentucky, because they offered. You've got to look at them since they offered me. I'm really open to any school right now. I'm open to anybody."
