Peyton Aucoin Talks about his time in Texas

Tight end Peyton Aucoin made his first unofficial visit to Texas this weekend and walked away impressed. Aucoin checks in from New Orleans (LA) Brother Martin H.S.

Peyton Aucoin is a three-star tight end prospect checking in at 6-foot-5, 251-pounds. He and his family made an unofficial visit to Austin (Texas) this past weekend.

”I went to Texas with my mom, dad and sister,” Aucoin said. “It was a trip I was looking forward to. It didn’t necessarily give me a new perspective but instead showed me the true Texas regarding the school, town, program, and facilities. I liked what I saw regarding those things.”

Tight end coach Jeff Traylor was not able to be in Austin this past weekend but Aucoin did spend plenty of time with Charlie Strong and Shawn Watson.

”My talk with Coach Strong was great because he emphasized the program, principles and his expectations for his players,” Aucoin said. “My parents loved Coach Strong and his style of coaching. Coach Watson talked about my ability to fit into the offense and play a true Y position and how important I am to them. The plan for the new offense was great because I could fit into it and thrive. Texas stands as one of my top schools right now. I just enjoyed it over there.”
