Big In-State Athlete Talks Auburn Camp

Aliceville standout Anfernee Mullins already has several big offers including Miss. State

Aliceville, Ala.--One of the more interesting athletes in Alabama for the 2015 class, 6-4, 245 Anfernee Mullins was on hand for Friday's O-Line/D-Line camp at Auburn and left impressed by what he saw and heard from the coaching staff following his workout.

Spending much of his time with Auburn defensive line coach Rodney Garner, Mullins said it was a great experience and one he hopes leads to an offer from the Tigers down the road.

"It was a great workout," Mullins said. "I kind of did good in the one-on-ones. I think I could have done better, but I learned some new things from Coach Garner. It was a great camp.

"At first it was hard," he added of working for the demanding Garner. "I look at it as motivation. The only thing he wanted was to see me do my best. I took it to heart and started doing my best."

Entering the camp with the hopes of earning an offer, Mullins tested through the roof with a 40-yard dash time of 4.62 seconds and a broad jump of eight feet, 10 inches. Even with those numbers he said it was a nerve-wracking experience for him because of what was on the line.

"I was nervous and excited," Mullins said. "At first I was nervous because it's an SEC school and I didn't want to mess up. At the same time I wanted to do good and pick up an offer from Auburn. I had to get the nerves out and do what I had to do."

Currently with offers from Mississippi State, Louisville, Memphis, Western Kentucky, Southern Miss, Troy and South Alabama, Mullins said he's not in any rush to make a decision. Following his chance to show Auburn what he can do the big athlete said it would be a dream to add Auburn to his list.

"I love it," Mullins said. "I love the atmosphere. I love the coaches. I have a great feel for it now.

"It would mean a lot to me," he added of a possible Auburn offer. "It would be my second SEC offer. My family grew up watching Auburn. That would mean a lot to me and my family. It would mean a lot to me to be a Tiger."
