Large Lineman Hoping to Impress AU's Coaches

Comments from class of 2010 offensive line prospect Quinterrius Eatmon are featured after camping at Auburn.

Prichard, Ala.--Vigor High School offensive tackle Quinterrius Eatmon says he has four scholarship offers and is working on getting more, including one from the Auburn Tigers.

On Saturday he participated in Auburn's one-day Senior Football Camp. He is expected to be one of the better offensive line prospects in the state of Alabama this fall.

"The camp went good," Eatmon says. "I think the coaches were impressed. I played hard."

At six-foot-six and 335 pounds, the rising senior is concentrating on improving his body. "This summer I am working on getting my weight down, my feet quicker and my legs stronger," he says. "I am trying to get to 315 or even to 305."

Although he didn't play basketball last season, he says that is something he will probably do as a senior. "That will help me get quicker with my feet," he says.

Eatmon says he has scholarship offers from South Florida, Louisville, Southern Miss and New Mexico. He says he hopes to add Auburn to that list."I like the tradition and just like the place," he says when talking about the Tigers.

The big tackle notes that he talked with Auburn's new offensive line coach, Jeff Grimes, following Saturday's camp. "He said he was very impressed and was going to keep in touch with me," Eatmon notes. "He said I move pretty quick to be 335 pounds. He said I can be quicker if I lose the weight."

Eatmon, who is interested in studying forensics or business in college, says he has an 18 on his ACT and a 2.4 grade point average.

The Vigor lineman notes that he is glad he attended the Auburn one-day session for prospects. "I learn a lot when I come to the college camps," he says, adding that he plans to return to AU this fall to check out the Tigers on game days.
