Auburn Offers 2012 Prospect From Mobile

A recruiting report on one of the state's top 2012 prospects is featured.

Mobile, Ala.--Chris Casher, a rising junior at Faith Academy in Mobile, picked up his first scholarship offer on Saturday from the Auburn Tigers.

Casher attended Auburn's one-day camp on Saturday and watched the proceedings, but did not take part in the drills.

A starter since his ninth grade year, the 6-4, 220-pounder is the cousin of former Auburn star cornerback Larry Casher. The younger Casher says he grew up following both Auburn and Alabama and those are his favorite teams.

"On Sunday I am going to a camp at Alabama and I expect they wil offer me too," he says.

Casher notes that his cousin wants him to follow him to Auburn. He says his decision will be based as much on academics and athletics. "I am serious about my classwork and I am focused on academics," says the two-way star who plays defensive end/linebacker and receiver. "I am looking at sports medicine."

"I think I will probably be a defensive end in college,"?he says. "I am still growing."

Casher says his best game last year defensively was against St. Paul's. "I had around 12 or 13 tackles in that game. My best game offensively was against Gulf Shores. I don't remember how many catches I?had, but it was for 111 yards."
