Four-Star WR High On Tigers

This talented wide receiver prospect talks about his unofficial visit to Auburn and where the Tigers stand.

Atlanta, Ga.--One of the South's top wide receivers took an unofficial visit to Auburn on Friday to check out the Tigers and says he continues to be impressed by what he sees. Speedy Antonio Goodwin from Washington high has offers from all over the country, he's taken multiple opportunities to visit Auburn this spring and notes the Tigers are right at the top of his very short list.

"I don't have a favorite," Goodwin says. "Auburn is (standing out to me). I don't really have another school. I really like their offense and how I would fit into their offense. It's really set up for me."

Already familiar with the campus and surroundings, Goodwin says Friday's trip was just to continue to become more familiar with the coaching staff.

"It went pretty good," Goodwin says. "I just talked to every coach. They were basically asking me what I thought about them. Things went pretty good. They told me how bad they need me and how I would fit in their offense. That's pretty good."

One of the reasons Auburn continues to be high on Goodwin's list is because of the coaching staff. With offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Ole Miss, North Carolina and most of the SEC and ACC, Goodwin says it has been the attention of the coaching staff that has made the difference with Auburn to this point.

"I have been talking with Coach Troop (Trooper Taylor)," he says. "He's really cool. He's a family person. He puts family first and football next."

Something else that is helping Auburn's case is a new offense under the direction of Gus Malzahn. Known for putting points on the board and getting the ball to his play makers, Malzahn's system is something Goodwin believes is going to work well for Auburn.

"The way it's set up he wants to get the ball to that go-to guy," Goodwin says. "They're going to score a lot. They're going to put points on the board."
