Cotton Shows Off Arm At Scout Camp

Raymond Cotton talks with Inside the Auburn Tigers about his camp performance on Sunday. He was one of several quality QBs on display at the Auburn practice fields.

Mobile, Ala.—The Scout.com camp in Auburn on Sunday featured a handful of SEC-level quarterback prospects including Auburn commitment Raymond Cotton, who didn't disappoint in showing off a strong and accurate arm.

"I think I did pretty well," Cotton says of his camp performance. "In the seven-on-seven I could have done a little bit better of reading the coverages, but all around with the whole day I think I did pretty good. I had a lot of velocity on the ball."

The talent level at the camp was top-notch and featured many of the top prospects around the Southeast. Cotton was working with receivers he hadn't worked with before, but still looked sharp throwing the ball to the right spots on the field.

"It was tough," he says of working with other receivers, "but you see them running routes and you pick them up pretty quick."

Cotton was all of 6-4, 220 pounds and showed off a strong arm and all of the physical tools, but still found an area of his game to improve on after working with the trainers from Competitive Edge Sports in Atlanta, who ran the combine.

"Footwork a little bit," Cotton explains, "but other than that I feel like I'm set. I've just got to work on my footwork."

The quarterback committed to Auburn on April 1st and got the official confirmation just recently that he'll be playing his senior season in Maryland after starting at Blount High School and playing most recently Faith Academy in Mobile.

"This spring we're getting a new offense and it's just like Auburn's new offense," Cotton notes. "That'll help me. I've talked to the coaches up there and it's going to be in Fort Meade, Maryland. We'll have a good time up there. From the sounds of the coaches they're happy. I'm kind of happy, too."

Of his current commitment to the Auburn program, Cotton responds, "It's hard. It's a solid verbal. I'm all Auburn. War Eagle baby. No visits. I've got one school and it's what I need."
