AU Commit Enjoys Recent Visit

Auburn commitment Travante Stallworth talks about his recent visit for the LSU game and updates his senior season.

Leesville, La.--Auburn commitment Travante Stallworth was one of the 87,451 in attendance Saturday night for the Tigers' game against LSU and like most that saw the game and experienced the atmosphere, Stallworth was left speechless by the spectacle.

"It was real exciting," Stallworth tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I was real impressed how everything came out and looked. They really love the players there at Auburn. I just can't wait to get down there."

A visitor to Auburn for a summer camp, the 5-10, 175 Stallworth says that seeing the campus in June prepared him in no way for what awaited him and his family on Saturday.

"It was real crazy," Stallworth says. "I didn't know it was going to be that exciting. My mom really enjoyed it. I really look forward to that again. I think everybody should really experience something like that."

A quarterback for Leesville High, Stallworth is being recruited by the Tigers as a wide receiver after an impressive showing at the position during his camp visit. He says because of that he watched the offense and feels like he has a chance to play early for Auburn.

"They played pretty well Saturday night," Stallworth says. "They played better than they played last week which is good. LSU just had the upper hand that night I guess with the score at the end."

A dual threat for Leesville at quarterback, Stallworth has led them to a 2-1 start with the only loss coming to 5A powerhouse West Monroe in a game only scheduled after both teams lost a game due to a hurricane and opponents not able to make the trip. For the year Stallworth says he's got just over 100 yards rushing and 400 passing yards. He has thrown for six scores and added three on the ground.

While much of his experience in the game of football will be as a quarterback, Stallworth is hoping to follow the footsteps of players such as Courtney Taylor at Auburn and current Tennessee receiver Lucas Taylor as guys who made the move to receiver with great success. He notes that he feels like it will give him an advantage when he moves outside permanently.

"It's going to help me a lot," Stallworth says. "I know certain coverages because I read them every day at practice and in games. I watch film to see what kind of coverages people are running so I think it's going to help me a lot."
