Washington High athlete Branden Smith is one of the most coveted players in the Peach State for 2008 and the four-star standout is headed to Auburn Friday to check out the Tigers.
The trip to the Plains will be the second for the 5-11, 180-pounder.
"I went there last year when they played against New Mexico State," Smith told GAVSV.com. "I was impressed with their school."
Smith, who excels at wide receiver, cornerback and on special teams, is headed to Auburn not to participate in the program's camp but to get a second look at the campus.
"I am not going to work out in the camp," Smith said. "I just want to see how the coaches coach and how they interact with the players."
Smith has drawn interest from some of the biggest programs throughout the southeast.
And when you are a player that stars at several positions, attention is placed on what school you are interested in and what position they are interested in you in.
Smith says he isn't concerned where he lines up at the next level.
"Auburn is looking at me as a wide receiver and cornerback," he said. "To be honest, it doesn't matter to me what position I play. I just want to help the team. It's all about helping the team."
