Talented Tank Rolls In for Big Cat Weekend

Football prospect Tank Sessions talks about his visit to Auburn.

Decatur, Ga.--Columbia High School defensive end and tight end Tank Sessions made a road trip on Saturday to check out Auburn's Big Cat Weekend and says he enjoyed the experience.

"I had a great time," he says. "I hung out with Seastrunk (Lache Seastrunk), Lattimore (Marcus Lattimore) and some other guys. It was a lot of fun."

Auburn is one of many colleges interested in the two-way standout. The Tigers obviously helped themselves with Sessions during his unofficial visit.

"After last weekend I have an even bigger interest in Auburn," he says. "They have moved up the list some more."

Sessions says he enjoyed spending time talking to the coaches, including head man Gene Chizik, Tommy Thigpen who recruits Columbia High School and Tracy Rocker, Auburn's defensive line coach.

"Coach Chizik and I we had a good conversation," he says. "Coach Thigpen is recruiting me. He is doing a real good job along with Coach Rocker. I talked to Coach Rocker and we talked about the position and how they are going to change things up with all of the new coaches coming in."

Sessions says he is being recruited by colleges for both defense and offense. "Auburn has offered me as a defensive end," he says.

The rising senior says he isn't sure if he is a better player on offense or defense. "They are about the same."

Commenting on why he thinks he is receiving coast to coast recruiting attention, Sessions says, "Most coaches say they like my size and my ability to get off the ball real fast."

The prospect will stay busy this summer. "I am planning on going to Oklahoma the week after next," he says, adding that he will also participate with his teammates in seven-on-seven camps at Georgia Tech and Westlake High School.

He also plans a return trip to Auburn. "I am going back there for a camp," he says. "I had a great time there on Saturday. The pie-eating contest was the best part. It was my second time to visit Auburn. I went down in April to visit on my own."
