Speedster Says Tigers Are His Favorite

This athlete from Georgia talks about his visit to Auburn last weekend.

Temple, Ga.--Speedster Robert Reese visited Auburn this past weekend on his first official visit of the recruiting season and says he came away with a leader for his services after spending two days on the Plains with a fired-up team already gearing up for next season.

"I told Coach (Tommy Tuberville) that they were number one on my list," Reese tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "It went pretty good. I had a lot of fun. It was just players acting the way they act around one another. That is a team bonding down there. They know what they are doing. They have some good stuff happening."

A player being recruited as both a wide receiver and defensive back, the 5-11, 185-pound Reese is one of the faster players in the South this season. Auburn is recruiting him as a cornerback where his sub 4.5 speed and good all-around athletic ability would come in handy.

Being recruited for Auburn by defensive tackle Coach Don Dunn, Reese notes that he enjoyed being able to sit and talk with the coaching staff about their plans for the program.

"The coaches are straightforward," Reese says. "They tell you straight up how it is. They are real cool. They sound like they know what they are talking about and they have to considering where they are coaching."

Reese says he has visits set to Troy State and Clemson in the coming weeks and may schedule a late visit before making a decision. He is also a standout basketball player for Temple and is averaging 14 points per game for a 11-4 team.
