James Takes In GMAC Bowl, Sets Official Visit

Auburn commitment LaVoyd James, a 5-10, 185 receiver, is one of several official visitors expected this weekend.

Mobile, Ala.—The GMAC Bowl usually isn't a game that draws interest from Auburn fans, but Tulsa's game against Ball State was a chance to catch a glimpse of the future of Auburn offense with Gus Malzahn calling the plays in the Golden Hurricane 45-13 victory.

Auburn commitment LaVoyd James, who attends Williamson High School just a couple of blocks away from Ladd-Peebles Stadium, got to see the action in person.

"I went to the game yesterday," James tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "I really liked their offense. I like the way they score a lot of points and I liked the way they threw the ball."

Tulsa finished with 632 yards total offense.

"I was standing up the whole time cheering," James says.

James has been committed to Auburn since mid-June and took several unofficial visits to Auburn during the season.

"I talked to Coach (James) Willis the other day and we were just talking about me coming up there up on my visit," James notes. "It's this Friday. Terrence (Coleman) and Jonathan Evans are going visit too."

James plans on majoring in business at Auburn and says that he's trying to make sure he gets qualified.

"School is going good, I've just got to re-take the ACT," he says. "The rest of it is going good. I took the ACT and I've got to take it again and get a higher score. I'm taking it again in February."
