Still waiting for a first offer from a major program, Frederick participated in Auburn's Senior Camp last Saturday and performed well.
Frederick ran a 4.6 40 and had a 33-inch vertical jump. He also ran a 4.3 NFL short shuttle, a good time for almost any player, but one he was disappointed with, he says. "The last time I was at an Auburn camp I ran a 4.1," he notes.
An honor student who wants to study civil engineering in college, he says he is interested in Auburn after taking multiple unofficial visits to the campus in recent months.
One of the attractions there is Auburn's new wide receivers coach, Trooper Taylor. "He is my favorite coach," the rising senior says.
Taylor talked to Frederick at the camp and gave him some encouragement. "He told me to stay at it," the receiver says. "He told me that I am still on the radar and to keep my focus."
Frederick is an interesting prospect for several reasons. He caught eight passes for more than 100 yards in his team's spring game victory over Florence and scored two touchdowns. He already has good size and appears to be growing.
"Last year I hurt my wrist playing basketball and the doctors said I had pretty large growth plates in my wrist and I should grow two or three inches," he notes.
