"It's obviously very frustrating for us," said Rob Drum. "We are trying to find a back-up quarterback right now. Hopefully, we will have it figured out by Thursday."
"It was a tough loss for us Friday against Oak Mountain (15-7). Neil went down on the third play, and we were missing out second best receiver. We have a tough game at Thompson this week. They have a pretty good team. They almost beat Hoover last week," Drum added.
Though it was an upsetting night, Drum still managed to travel to Auburn the following day to attend the Tigers season opener.
"I went to the game against Georgia Tech. I thought Georgia Tech looked really good. I think they are going to have a great team this year. I was down there for an unofficial visit with Auburn. I talked to Coach (Hugh) Nall, and Coach (Terry) Price. They didn't really say much besides glad to see me down there," said Drum.
Last Thursday marked the beginning of college coaches calling recruits once a week. The three-star lineman received his share of calls.
Drum does not plan to attend any games this weekend, but is thinking about future games and official visits.
"I won't be going anywhere this weekend," said Drum. "I think the next game I will attend is the Georgia Tech-UConn game. I haven't set up any official visits yet, but two schools I know I will visit are Duke and Georgia Tech."
When asked if the in-state programs were showing strong interest Drum replied, "I still get a lot of letters from Auburn. I get a lot of hand-written letters from Coach (Al) Borges. Alabama really has not sent me anything in a while. Neither school has called me."
"I haven't really set a date or anything yet," Drum said about his decision. "I would like to get my decision over with before play-offs start. I don't have any favorites. I am keeping all of my options open."
