Stephon Tuitt Narrowing It Down To Five

Monroe Area defensive end Stephon Tuitt recently took a trip to Auburn. Tuitt talks about the trip and names his favorites and some of the schools that will be getting official visits.

The trip to Auburn was a good one for Stephon Tuitt. "I got a chance to see the school and meet some new people," said Stephon. "The coaching staff is very good there and it's a nice college town" Tuitt rated the trip a good one.

Tuitt doesn't seem to be any closer to making a decision. "I'm sticking to my plan to take my five official visits and then making a decision after those visits." Tuitt has decided on two or there of the schools that will get those visits. "I know that Georgia Tech and Notre Dame are getting visits and I think Auburn will get one too." Tuitt is still trying to decide which schools will get the final two visits. "I will use the next few weeks to decide that."

Now that he's visited Auburn, Tuitt is done with his visits for the summer. "We have our Jamboree on the 13th and then on the 27th we open the season." Stephon's next visit will be one of the officials. "I don't really see myself taking any unofficial visits to new schools."

Tuitt will now be thinking about the factors that will be part of his decision. "One of the factors will be how much I like the campus and are there things to do on campus." His relationship with the coaches and what they can do to help him improve as a player will be another important factor. "How I bond with the players is also important."

Stephon is winding down his recruitment and is coming to the home stretch. He has three schools he will visit for officials and will pick the other two in the very near future. He wants to have the list ready to go when his season starts so he can just concentrate on his top five choices. Top Stories
