Talented Georgia Offensive Lineman Likes Tigers

This outstanding tackle from the Peach State says Auburn is in his top two.

Powder Springs, Ga.--College coaches could begin hitting the recruiting trail for in-home visits last Sunday and one of the first places the Auburn coaching staff stopped at was the home of Jarrod Britt.

"Coach (Bobby) Petrino came to my house Sunday," Britt tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "He was the very first to come to my house. He was slick. He's really good. I like the way he was talking. He came to my house and was talking about winning games and winning national championships. I think that's the way you're supposed to build a program."

A 6-5, 273-pound offensive tackle from McEachern High, he is considered by many to be one of the top offensive line prospects in the South. With 4.9 speed in the 40-yard dash and a 370-pound bench press, it's no wonder that many of the top schools have been hot on his trail since he decided that his very early commitment to Clemson was not what he wanted to do.

With four official visits already set, Britt says that it will likely come down to his final two visits before he knows which school to attend.

"I have a visit for tommorrow (Friday, Dec. 6) to Maryland," Britt notes. "Then I have one set with South Carolina on December 13. I have one set with Auburn on January 10 and one set with Florida Jan. 17. I had one set with Alabama on the 24th, but I don't know what's going on there."

Rated as the 42nd prospect in the Southern Region by TheInsiders.com network, Britt has been a top performer at both guard and tackle in high school and has the skills to play both in the collegiate ranks.

Tiger Ticket Extra: Auburn is expected to take commitments from just two more offensive linemen for this year's class and Britt is definitely one of the players the Tigers are looking seriously at signing in February.
