Busy Weekend For Defensive Back

This defender packed two visits into his weekend as he gets closer to making a decision.

Alexander City, Ala.--Defensive back Eric Brock from Benjamin Russell High visited Louisville this weekend and will make an extra-stop before returning home, his father Jimmy Brock told Inside The Auburn Tigers Sunday afternoon.

After listening to coaches from Alabama, South Carolina and a few other schools last week, Brock decided to take a visit to UAB beginning Sunday before taking his final trip to Auburn this coming weekend. Flying out of Birmingham for his Louisville visit, Brock remained in the Magic City upon his arrival and will take a look at Coach Watson Brown's program before going home Monday morning.

A 6-0, 180 defensive back that also played wide receiver as a junior and senior, Brock had 14 interceptions in two seasons as he developed into one of the premier cover corners in Alabama. As a senior he had 84 tackles and four blocked punts on defense and also tallied 25 catches for 515 yards and six touchdowns on offense.

Brock's teammate, defender Marquies Gunn, also took the trip to Louisville and remained in Birmingham to visit UAB. Gunn has already visited Auburn and says the Tigers are one of his leaders.
