Large Lineman Has Quality Time at "Big Cat"

Big Cat Weekend visitor Kenneth Carter talks about his trip to check out the Auburn football Tigers.

Greenville, Ala.--Kenneth Carter says the best thing about his visit to Auburn's Big Cat Weekend was getting quality time with the man who could be his college position coach.

Carter, a 6-5, 270-pound defensive lineman from Greenville High School, says he spent a good bit of the day with Auburn assistant coach Tracy Rocker, who coaches the ends and the interior defensive linemen for Coach Gene Chizik's Tigers.

"I really like Coach Rocker and I got a chance to get to know him better," Carter tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "I talked to a lot of the coaches and they are really cool."

The Big Cat Weekend on Saturday was a chance for the prospects invited to the event and their parents and/or coaches to get a chance to spend time with Chizik and his staff in an informal setting.

"It was a very good weekend," Carter says. "I liked all of the activities that went on with it--the pie-eating contest, the ping pong, the pool, all of that."

Kenneth Carter may play both ways as a senior.

Carter says he is looking forward to his senior year. "I am lifting weights and I am feeling good," he notes. "I know I am ready to have a great senior season.

"Being a leader is very important to me," Carter adds. "We are going to have a good team this year, I believe. We are very excited about it."

Carter says he also enjoyed meeting other prospects and notes that he will be back in Auburn this summer. "I am planning to go to camp at both Auburn and Alabama," says the lineman, who adds that he is in no hurry to pick a college from a list of offers that includes Auburn, alabama, Ole Miss, LSU, Kentucky and others.
