Palmer Checks Out Auburn's Junior Day

Class of 2014 football prospect Sedrick Palmer is interested in the Auburn Tigers.

McDonough, Ga.--Sedrick Palmer is on the football prospect Junior Day circuit. His latest visit was to spend a Saturday in Auburn and the Henry County High running back said he liked what he saw.

"It was a great visit," Palmer said. "They really laid it out for us and showed what the university is about."

The 5-9, 205-pound running back is hoping to get an offer soon from Auburn and other colleges after putting up big numbers as a junior despite missing a large chunk of the season after suffering an ankle injury, which he said is now fully healed.

"Recruiting is starting to pick up," he said. "I am getting invited to a lot of junior days and a lot of schools are showing interest. A lot of schools are talking about offering--probably a dozen Division I schools."

So far he has one offer. That came early this month from Vanderbilt. Other recent visits have been to Georgia and Tennessee.

Asked what he is looking for in a college, Palmer said, "I am a momma's boy so I don't want to be too far from the house. Location and a feel are important to me. I have a big family with five brothers and sisters. If I get a family feel that will be a big thing."

Palmer, who said that he can run a sub 4.5 40-yard dash, is looking to put up really big numbers this fall.

"I started my junior year really well," he said. "I got invited to the Georgia junior bowl for the top players in the state. I only played in six games because I got hurt, but I still ended up with 1,100 yards rushing so that looks good to a lot of schools. I also played linebacker and played more on defense than I did on offense."
