Frost Warming on Auburn

Kris Frost made a trip from North Carolina to visit Auburn during the Big Cat Weekend.

Matthews, N.C--Kris Frost says he is excited about how well recruiting is going and notes that he is also excited that Auburn is one of the colleges seriously interested in the two-way star from Butler High School.

The linebacker/receiver headed to Auburn for the Tigers' second annual Big Cat Weekend, an event that attracted prospects from across the southeast. He missed all of the organized activities on Saturday, but still got to spend time with coaches and hang out on the campus.

"It was a good trip," he says. "We actually got there a little late. I came down with my dad. I had to wait for my dad to get off work. It started raining and traffic was really slow."

He notes that they arrived in Auburn late on Saturday night and then spent time with the coaches the next day. "It was my third trip to Auburn and I really like it," he says.

Frost notes that Auburn is a college he is seriously considering. He says the Tigers are looking at him as both a receiver and outside linebacker.

"Recruiting is going great," the six-foot-three, 210-pound rising senior says. "It is really heating up now. The offers are starting to roll in. I am going to be taking those visits during the summer going to different places and going to different states to see how I like them."

One of the reasons recruiting is going great is how impressive Frost was at linebacker last fall, his first season on defense for Butler High School. He made 92 tackles, including 10 behind the line of scrimmage, while making four interceptions and forcing four fumbles. He was named Mecklenburg County Defensive Player of the Year as he helped his team win a state championship with a 15-0 record.

Frost, who is not expected to make a college choice until after his senior season, notes that he plans to visit LSU, Michigan, Cal, North Carolina, Clemson, Georgia and Georgia Tech and may also take a trip to check out the Texas A&M?Aggies.

Asked what he is looking for in a college, Frost says, "The program that makes me feel best that is best suited for me. The program that is really going to allow me to expose myself to my highest potential and see how far I can go in football.

"I would like to go to a place where I could get playing time as a young player, as a freshman," he adds. "I am pretty sure I can."
