Brotherly Shove For Talented Quarterback

This quarterback commitment to the Tigers visited Alabama over the weekend, but was it enough to change his mind?

Phenix City, Ala.--Despite getting the full-court press from the Alabama coaching staff this weekend on a visit to Tuscaloosa, Auburn commitment Kelcy McKissic-Luke tells Inside The Auburn Tigers that he's still firmly committed to playing for Coach Tommy Tuberville next season.

Hosted on his visit by his brothers Triandos Luke and Nick Luke, Kelcy says that spending time with Nick and Triandos was the highlight of his weekend.

"It was a nice visit," McKissic-Luke says. "It was good to spend some time with them."

A solid commitment to Auburn since he announced his choice of the Tigers at Central High in December, McKissic-Luke says that the persistence of Coach Mike Price and his new staff warranted the visit, but it wasn't enough to make him change his mind.

"I just wanted to hear what the coaches had to say," McKissic-Luke notes. "They have a new coaching staff and I wanted to see what they had to say."
