The six-foot-six, 338-pound junior from Cullman High School says he was looking forward to the unofficial visit, but notes that the trip was nixed by a higher authority.
"You know how mothers are," he says. "With the bad weather she didn't want me to be out driving at night. I definitely plan to get to Auburn for a game. For sure I will be there to watch them play against Ole Miss."
Sever weather delayed the start of the Auburn game more than an hour as the Tigers won 41-30 to improve to 3-0.
A player who stood out an Auburn summer camp, he is off to a strong start as a junior after transferring from A.P. Brewer High to Cullman High over the summer.
"Our team is playing well," says Region, who notes that he has a high interest in Coach Gene Chizik's Tigers. "We won again on Friday night and we are 4-0. I thought I played a good game. The weather was bad so we ran the ball a lot. My coach came to me and said they were going to run behind me a lot and I enjoyed that. I had 18 pancakes in the game."
