Hart Likes Three, Talks Auburn

Running back Dee Hart talks recruiting, how his summer is going, and gives his thoughts on the Auburn Tigers.

Orlando, Fla.--One of the top running back prospects in the nation this year, Dr. Phillips' standout Dee Hart has plenty of options on where he's going to play college football. With dozens of offers the 5-9, 190 Hart is a combination of size, speed and quickness and he said at the moment he's working to improve in all phases of the game as schools continue to sell him on their programs.

"It hasn't been that crazy," Hart said of his summer. "I have been training some with coach Tom Shaw. Our team has been going to 7-on-7 camps a lot. We're heading to the National 7-on-7 in Oregon at Nike. I'm looking forward to that.

"Things have been real busy," Hart added. "I'm still getting offers. I haven't seen some of the latest ones but they're still coming in."

Recently Hart stated that Auburn, Alabama and Michigan were his three favorites as he prepares for his senior year. He backed that up when Inside The Auburn Tigers spoke with him and had plenty to say about coach Gene Chizik's program.

"Yes sir that's correct," Hart said. "For Auburn it's just their coaches, their family style of doing things. I like the offense. It's a great offense. They spread it around and let three or four running backs carry the ball."

Having already visited Auburn once, Hart said the trip to the Plains gave him a chance to see what the Tigers were all about as he tries to find out as much as possible about each of his favorites.

"It helped me a lot," Hart said. "I got a chance to get to know them. I got to see from the inside and sit down one-on-one with everybody."

As a sophomore Hart rushed for over 1,800 yards and 17 touchdowns to earn All-Central Florida by the Orlando Sentinel. He was also named Honorable Mention All-State for 6A classification. He backed that up as a junior as he was named Second-Team All-State Athlete for 6A classification and All-Central Florida First-Team running back by the Orlando Sentinel after totaling over 2,200 all-purpose yards and 23 scores.
