Coach Discusses Tide Commit's Visit To Auburn

Vigor head football coach Kerry Stevenson comments on Burton Scott's official visit to Auburn.

Prichard, Ala.--According to Vigor High School Coach Kerry Stevenson, Alabama commitment Burton Scott will be visiting Auburn this weekend on an official visit to hang out with his old high school teammate and current Auburn player Sen'Derrick Marks.

"He's not coming down there to be recruited," Stevenson says of Scott's visit to Auburn and his commitment to Alabama. "He's coming down there to hang out. They're still going to bring him in because they feel like they still have a chance. Burton Scott is one of the most committed people. If he tells you he's committed to something, he's committed to do it."

Scott was a quarterback at Vigor but projects as either a cornerback or receiver at the college level. With the new hire of Tony Franklin as the offensive coordinator, the need for receivers in this year's class has gone up. However, it was the other coordinator change that may have cost Auburn a shot with Scott when defensive coordinator Will Muschamp left for the University of Texas.

"Does Auburn still have a chance?" Stevenson explains. "I'll tell you. The reason he would come to Auburn, if he would come, would be to play for Muschamp. Is Muschamp there?

"If he was coming up to Auburn, he'd be playing for Coach Muschamp," he adds. "And I don't think Coach Muschamp is there any more. Next week he's going to Florida. The next weekend he's going to Miami. He has already visited Alabama."

Scott, who attended a summer camp at Auburn, committed to Alabama over Auburn, Florida and others on July 30.
