Offensive Lineman Takes Another Look At AU

Offensive lineman Reese Dismukes talks about his Friday trip to Auburn.

Spanish Fort, Ala.--One of the South's top offensive line prospects and the top center in Alabama took an unofficial visit to Auburn on Friday to see the Tigers in action on the practice field and to spend time with the coaching staff. Reese Dismukes has been to Auburn several times in the past few months and said on this trip he got to see more of the inner workings of the football program in addition to the golf facilities.

"I started off going to meetings this morning," Dismukes said. "Then I went to practice and after that I hung out with some of the players. Then I toured the golf facility. Then I just went back to the athletic complex and chilled.

"I watched film with some of the players on practice," he added. "I watched film with all of the guys in the morning."

Making a visit to Alabama on Monday and the return trip to the Plains on Friday, Dismukes said that he's down to just the Tigers and Crimson Tide and will make his decision sometime soon after their spring games on April 17.

"I should be coming to a decision here in about two weeks," Dismukes said. "It will be between Auburn and Alabama.

"I feel like I feel at home at both places," he added. "I have contacts at Auburn and Alabama. I feel I can fit in at both places."

Early playing time is something that most prospects talk about and Dismukes is no different. That should be something that works in Auburn's favor as center Ryan Pugh is a senior and there is just one scholarship back-up in Jared Cooper. He said it's definitely something that he's paying close attention to at Auburn.

They are real thin on the offensive line right now," Dismukes said. "They need some guys to come in, especially in the middle with some guys hurt. They're doing a good job.

"That's a big thing with me," Dismukes added. "I want to come in and play wherever I go, whether it's Auburn or Alabama. I don't want to sit around and wait. It's up to me on how I do."

With extensive about each school and friends such as Auburn commitment Spencer Region in his ear, Dismukes said that making his final decision won't be something he enters into lightly. While he knows more about Auburn and Alabama than most recruits ever would about their schools of choice, he said he's planning to see both again before he makes his decision public.

"I'll probably visit Alabama again and maybe go back to Auburn for the A-Day or over there for A-Day," Dismukes said. "I haven't decided yet."
