Young QB Likes Visit To Auburn Campus

A class of 2014 football prospect talks about his visit with the Auburn coaching staff.

Goose Creek, S.C.--With his parents and grandfather with him, class of 2014 quarterback prospect Jacob Park spent Friday and parts of Saturday on the Auburn campus checking out the football program.

The 6-4, 210-pound junior got plenty of attention from the AU staff so it is obvious he is going to be a priority recruit for the Tigers.

The prospect got plenty of one-on-one time with Auburn offensive coordinator and quarterback coach Scot Loeffler. "I like him.," Park said. "He is a down-to-earth guy."

He also got to talk to the head coach. "I met with Coach (Gene) Chizik multiple times while I was there," Park said. "He is a really nice guy."

In addition he and his family talked to wide receivers coach Trooper Taylor. "I love Coach Trooper," the quarterback said. "He is funny."

All things considered the trip to Auburn was a very good, the quarterback noted. "I love it," he said of Auburn. "They set the bar kind of high for the rest of the colleges. I felt at home. They talked to me like a normal person." He added that his family "loved" the visit, too.

Saying it was the best college visit he has had so far, the prospect noted that he is going to visit Tennessee next. He is also considering South Carolina, Florida and Georgia. The 16-year-old doesn't have any scholarship offers, but that is expected to change soon.

As a sophomore Park said he passed for approximately 1,500 yards and rushed for 500 more. His team runs a spread offense with the option part of the attack.

An honor student with a 3.8 grade point average, Park is also the starting center on Stratford's basketball team.

He noted that it is still early in the recruiting process for him and he doesn't have a time frame for making a decision on a college choice. "I am just trying to find a place where I feel home," he said. "I am going to try back and see a couple of games," he said.
