AU commit Kamryn Melton excited

8/13/2012

Dothan, Ala., cornerback Kamryn Melton was one of the first players to join Auburn University’s 2012 recruiting when he committed to the Tigers back in February, the same day as ESPN 150 wide receiver Earnest Robinson.

Since then, AU has added 12 more recruits to the class, including five-stars Reuben Foster and Carl Lawson. The class has shot up to No. 6 in the country, and Melton is excited about what the future holds. He’s even watching the highlight films of the new commitments.

“It will be a really good class,” Melton said. “I always talk to them and text them here and there. All of us are really on the same page, trying to get to the next level and try to get a national championship when we get there.”

When the three-star cornerback visited Auburn last month, the coaching staff said he and some of the other members of the 2013 class will have a chance to earn early playing time.

“They told me that first year we can really improve, get on the field quicker and make the team even better by going out and getting better and better,” Melton said.

Since making his commitment, Melton has seen his offer list grow. He now has offers from Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisiana Tech, Middle Tennessee State, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, South Alabama, Tennessee, Troy, Tulane and UAB.

However, the Alabama native says he’s not going anywhere.

“I appreciate you coming by, but I’m committed to Auburn. That’s my family.”
