Defensive End Plans Trip to Auburn

A Georgia defensive end plans to check out the Auburn Tigers this weekend.

Norcross, Ga.--Adrian Hubbard, a six-foot-seven, 227-pound defensive end from Norcross High School, says he plans to attend his first Auburn football game on an unofficial visit to Jordan-Hare Stadium this weekend.

A prospect who is having a strong senior season, he has racked up 72 tackles with six sacks playing for a 4-4 team that will take on his former high school, Peachtree Ridge High, on Friday night.

Hubbard says he is looking forward to that game because he knows a lot of the Peachtree Ridge players. He is also looking forward to his trip to Auburn.

"I have been there for a basketball game, but not a football game," he says.

The defensive end notes that Auburn defensive coordinator Ted Roof began recruiting him about two weeks ago and he is hoping to pick up a scholarship offer from the Tigers. Hubbard says that he likes Auburn's tradition of playing strong defense.

Hubbard says that he already has scholarship offers from Ole Miss, Auburn's opponent on Saturday, as well as Clemson, Maryland, South Carolina, North Carolina State, FSU, Kentucky, Middle Tennessee State, Georgia State, Jacksonville State and others.

"I don't have a favorite right now," he says. "I am looking for a place where I will it in with the players and the coaches, and a place where I can study forensics."

The Norcross High senior says he has a 3.1 grade point average in the classroom. On the basketball court he averaged a double-double as a junior with 11.1 points and 10.9 rebounds per game. Hubbard says he believes football is his best sport and it is the one he plans to play in college.

As a senior football player defending the run is his strength, he says, and his pass rush moves is the area that he is concentrating on improving as his team hits the stretch run of the season.
