Four-Star Quarterback To Visit Tigers

One of the country's top quarterback prospects is expected to visit Auburn this weekend and has the Tigers in his final two.

Sulphur Springs, Tex.--One of the country's top duel-threat quarterbacks says that he plans to take an official visit to Auburn over the weekend to check out Gene Chizik's program. Speedy four-star Tyrik Rollison has offers from all over the country, but he says right now he's down to just two schools and will visit Auburn beginning Friday.

"Yes sir I'm visiting," the 6-2, 195 Rollison tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I'm really taking the visit so I can see the school."

"It's just Auburn and Kansas State," he adds on where he stands on the recruiting front.

Being recruited for Auburn by coach Curtis Luper, Rollison says he has ties to him from his time at Oklahoma State and that's not all. Luper also coached his uncle in high school football. Rollison says having him at Auburn is something that makes the Tigers attractive.

"We've built a solid relationship since he was at Oklahoma State," Rollison says. "It kept growing when he moved to Auburn. He's been recruiting me there and I got a visit from him.

"My uncle didn't have to tell me anything about coach Luper," he adds. "The only thing he told me was that coach Luper was straightforward. I can already tell that."

A U.S.Army All-American and All-State performer that had a huge season for Sulpher Springs, he led his team to the Class 4A Division II title in a 69-49 shootout. In the game Rollison was 22-29 passing for 398 yards. He also rushed 22 times for 119 yards. He passed for four touchdowns and rushed for three more.

For the season Rollison completed 315-428 passes for 4,728 yards and 51 touchdowns with 15 interceptions. He also added 1,094 yards on the ground and 14 touchdowns on 172 carries.
