4-Star Prospect Visits Chizik's Tigers

Quan Bray talks about his visit to Auburn and how recruiting is going. The report features video highlights of the talented football prospect.

Hogansville, Ga.--Quan Bray, who can do a variety of different things and do them well on a football field, spent Thursday in Auburn checking out the campus and the Auburn football program.

For the heavily recruited rising senior from Callaway High School, it was his first visit to Auburn since he watched the West Virginia game at Jordan-Hare Stadium last fall.

Before that his previous time in Auburn was for a 2009 summer seven-on-seven team camp he participated in with his Callaway High teammates. Bray was a standout performer at the event.

Bray, who is rated as a four-star running back prospect by Scout.com, is scheduled to be the starting quarterback for his team this year, but that is not expected to be his position as a college player.

"Some say DB, some say wide receiver, some say running back," Bray responds when asked what positions he is being recruited to play in college.

"Auburn is recruiting me as a wide receiver/running back type, a versatile back," he points out. He notes the Tigers are looking for a big-play threat, a guy who can make defenders miss and turn a short gainer into a big play.

Bray notes that he is fortunate to have a scholarship offer from Auburn and more than 35 other colleges. He says he doesn't have a leader or a list of favorites, but by the end of the summer he hopes to come up with a list of five colleges to seriously consider. The Tigers are definitely on his radar. "Auburn has a good chance of making my top five," he says.

"I am trying to see who is best for me and my family," says Bray, who spent time on Thursday in Auburn with head coach Gene Chizik, wide receiver coach Trooper Taylor, offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn and defensive line coach Tracy Rocker, who recruits the Hogansville area for Auburn.

Commenting on Auburn, Bray says that it looks like a place where he would fit in and enjoy spending four years. He notes that he plans to come back this summer and says that Chizik suggested he bring family members to check out the campus, too.

Quan Bray is scheduled to play quarterback this fall for Callaway High.

Bray, who notes that he is 5-11, 185 pounds, says that his summer schedule calls for plenty of football workouts and more trips to college campuses. Clemson and Alabama are two of the other programs he is seriously considering, he notes.

Bray visited Auburn the same day as LaMichael Fanning, his former teammate at Callaway High who transferred to Auburn High School last year. Bray notes that the two are friends, but where Fanning is going to college won't have an effect on him. Fanning is verbally committed to Alabama, but Bray notes that it isn't a given that the big defensive end will ultimately sign with the Tide.

What will likely impact Bray's decision is what position he is being recruited to play because the rising senior prefers offense. "I love to have the ball in my hands with a chance to make plays," he says.
