Talented DE Earns His Way At Auburn Camp

Defensive end prospect Devaunte Sigler talks about his Auburn camp experience and gives his feelings on the Tigers.

Mobile, Ala.--Some prospects attend a football camp with an offer already in hand while others are hoping to make some noise for the coaching staff. For B.C. Rain standout Devaunte Sigler Sunday was definitely the latter.

Waiting on an offer from the Auburn Tigers, Sigler took part in a one-day camp on the Plains and showed why he's considered one of the top defensive linemen in Alabama for 2010. He said he believes he showed enough to get an offer from the Tigers.

"Today was a great day," Sigler said. "I came out and did what I had to do for the camp. The coaches told me they had to evaluate me. Today was the last day for them to evaluate me. They said they had seen me play and seen me practice. All I needed was one day to work with them and I would have my offer."

With the offer forthcoming and the Tigers now on board, Sigler said getting the word from Auburn is something that is big for him and means his hard work is paying off.

"It means a lot to me," Sigler said. "It's not the first big school to offer me but it's one of them. I have been waiting on this one. It means a lot."

With offers from Ole Miss, Kentucky, Southern Miss, Memphis, Louisiana-Lafayette and UAB already on the table in addition to Auburn, Sigler said at the moment the Tigers are still behind on school but closing in rapidly.

"Right now Auburn is number two," Sigler said. "Right now Ole Miss is number one. I won't take much for Auburn to jump on top. As long as I keep in contact with the good people on campus.

"It's real close," Sigler added. "I don't have long to choose. Auburn right now, they have my eye. I like the way they evaluated me. I like the way the camp went and how the coaches took time out to teach."
