Committed Lineman Talks About Visit

This offensive lineman talks about his visit to Auburn over the weekend.

Powder Springs, Ga.--A player already committed to the Auburn Tigers took his official visit to the Plains this weekend and he tells Inside The Auburn Tigers that the weekend was everything he was looking for. Hosted by fellow offensive lineman Danny Lindsey on his weekend trip, McEachern High's Jarrod Britt says he had a great visit.

"It was a fun weekend," Britt says. "I enjoyed every bit of it. I got to know King Dunlap and the rest of the commitments. I enjoyed myself. It felt like home. I got along with all the guys, especially the Brentwood guys. I actually played video games with King's little brother for a long time. I just got to hang out and I enjoyed hanging out with everybody."

At 6-5, 273, Britt isn't small by any stretch of the imagination but he says that when he met Marcus McNeill and Rich Trucks he couldn't believe how big they were. McNeill, who hosted Aubrey McPhadden, made an impression on both of the high school linemen. Britt says he and McPhadden also developed a relationship during the two-day visit.

"I liked Aubrey," Britt notes. "I got to hang out with him a lot. I talked to him a lot. We talked a lot but it was just like we hit it off and became friends. I don't know how his situation is but I wish him luck and hope he becomes an Auburn Tiger. Marcus McNeill is a funny guy. I don't think I've ever seen anybody that big, well maybe Rich Trucks, he's a big human being as well."

A solid commitment to the Tigers, Britt says he used this weekend as a preview of playing for Auburn next fall. Meeting with coaches and teammates to get an introduction to the offensive system, Britt seems determined to make an immediate impact when he arrives on the Auburn campus next fall.

"Coach (Don) Dunn came and picked me up," Britt says of his weekend itinerary. "I talked with Coach (Hugh) Nall for a while. We talked some plays and I was trying to learn and get everything ready for the system. I talked with Coach (Tommy) Tuberville for a while as well."
