Talented Terrell Likes Weekend On The Plains

Pelham linebacker Nigel Terrell talks about the Big Cat Weekend at Auburn.

Pelham, Ala.--Being part of something like the Big Cat Weekend isn't something that talented linebacker Nigel Terrell envisioned for himself. Flying onto the recruiting radar in the last few months, he says his weekend in Auburn only enforced in his mind the fact that he's arrived.

"It's a good group of guys," Terrell tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I really enjoyed myself and felt good."

Joining Terrell on the trip was his younger brother as well as teammate and current Auburn commitment Jake Holland. He says getting the chance to meet up and talk with players from all over was one of the best experiences of the weekend for him.

"It was good," Terrell says. "We just hung out and tried to be ourselves. We got to know all of the players from around the nation. We had the top players there so it was good to get with them and see what they're about."

Names such as Marcus Lattimore, Lache Seastrunk, Trovon Reed, Khairi Fortt and Eric Mack were all in Auburn for the Big Cat Weekend and are ranked among the top two at their respective positions in the country according to Scout.com.

As a player being recruited by Auburn, Terrell says that gives him a good feeling about the direction of the program under Gene Chizik and also the ability of the current coaching staff to attract top talent.

"They're recruiting the best in the nation," Terrell says of Auburn. "They expect to have the best. If they're pulling all the great ones from around the nation and putting them in Auburn, there are no words that you can say for that. It's great."

Planning to take in several summer camps in the coming weeks, Terrell says right now he's not sure when he'll make a decision on his future. One thing he knows for sure though is that the time is drawing closer.

"I'm really starting to want to get it over with," Terrell says. "I'm really thinking about getting it done, but I'm not sure yet.

"I'm pretty much looking at the SEC schools and West Virginia and Florida State," Terrell says. "Mostly the schools that were a few of my first offers. I've got a decent relationship with them.

"It's all about relationships," he adds. "If you can get a relationship then you can talk to me. If you're not going to talk to me don't recruit me. It's pretty much pointless."
