Productive Prattville End Getting Interest

Alex Page talks recruiting with Inside the Auburn Tigers.

Prattville, Ala.—Defensive end prospect Alex Page of Prattville High School has been one of the more productive players for the Lions' state championship runs the past two seasons and has been getting interest from different colleges for quite some time.

Page was offered two springs ago by the former Houston coach Art Briles' staff. Heading into his senior season, he holds an offer from South Alabama is hearing from several other schools.

"Vanderbilt, Auburn, Alabama and South Alabama are the teams that are showing the main interest right now," Page says. "As far as my most interest and who I'm learning to, it's Auburn just because I've visited with them and I've had the best time at the school. That's the main place I've visited. I've gone to Vanderbilt earlier in the year during the season and watched the game. It was good, but I like Auburn a lot and I kind of want to stay in the state."

Page made a couple of visits to Auburn during the spring and is planning on going back in the summer.

"I came to Auburn's junior day and that went good," he states. "Then I came to the A-Day game and that was nice and all. I just liked the staff. Everybody was real nice and friendly. I'll be going to Auburn in a few weeks for the two-day camp starting June 14th. I'm also looking into the Alabama and Vanderbilt camps. I've got a good many invites to camps this summer."

Page has been a terror from end position for Prattville and put up big numbers as a junior on a team that finished the season undefeated with a shutout victory over Spain Park at the Super 6 in Birmingham.

"Last year I had 58 solos, 44 assists, 13 ½ sacks for 84 yards lost, 13 quarterback hurries and one pass deflection," Page notes. Of his current size, Page says, "I've been measured at both 6-1 and 6-2 and I'm 225."
