4-Star Defensive Back Checks Out Auburn

A report on one of the top 2011 football prospects is featured with his comments on Auburn and game video highlights.

Miami, Fla.--One of the Sunshine State's top athletes, Robenson Therezie, a 5-10 180-pound four-star cornerback, made his first trip to Auburn on Thursday to check out the campus and he met with the AU coaches face to face for the first time.

"I'm just getting in touch with the coaches at Auburn," he tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "During the season I didn't know if I had an offer from Auburn, but at the end of school I did. I like the coaches at Auburn, and I am trying to get to know more about the program."

While most colleges are recruiting Therezie to play on the defensive side of the ball, Auburn has mentioned giving him the opportunity to possibly play running back on the next level, but the position that he plays won't play a big factor in his decision making process.

"The position that I play doesn't matter," says Therezie, whose nickname is "Cadillac," the same as former Tiger star running back Carnell Williams. "Just getting the right school is all that matters to me. I've been working at cornerback at the camps even though they are recruiting me as a safety just because they wanted to see if I could run or not, and the coaches like it a lot"

The talented prospect has already visited Florida and Miami this summer, and has also competed at camps at both Alabama and Tennessee. With offers from virtually any school in the southeast that he is interested in, including Auburn, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, LSU, North Carolina, Miami, and Tennessee, Therezie is in no hurry to name a leader, but does have an idea of when he may make his decision.

"I'm still looking at all of the schools that are recruiting me and just trying to find the best place for me," he says. "I plan on making a commitment during my season. When I feel comfortable and have narrowed everything down. Just sort of when it feels right."

Therezie says he is enjoying the recruiting process and the attention he has received from all of the coaches this summer. "It feels great right now," he says. "Getting the opportunity to play in the SEC, one of the biggest of them all, is just great."

When asked what he is looking for when trying to narrow his school choices, Therezie says, "I'm looking for a good program. Someone that can tutor me and look out for me just like I will look out for them when I'm playing."

As a junior, Therezie was named Second Team All-State as a defensive back after tallying 81 tackles, four interceptions and two forced fumbles. He was also responsible for 279 rushing and 230 yards receiving on the offensive side of the ball.
