LB T.J. Posey takes in top SEC games

9/24/2012

Gadsden, Ala., linebacker T.J. Posey is getting accustomed to attending an SEC game every Saturday. Last week, the 2014 prospect visited Tennessee for the Florida game, and this past weekend, he was in Auburn for the LSU game.

“It was great,” Posey said of the AU visit. “It was a live atmosphere. The defense played hard. The coaches put them in the right spots to make plays. Overall, I believe it’s a confidence boost for Auburn. I just like the atmosphere down there.”

Posey made the trip with his Gadsden City teammates Rodney Edwards, B.J. Hammond, Finessee Middleton and Blake Worthy. Before the game, the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Posey met with Auburn assistant coaches Curtis Luper and Tommy Thigpen.

“They were telling me they were glad that I came up,” he said. “They want me to come for another game. They asked me about my season and how I’ve been doing. We talked a little about the upcoming games, the Auburn High game.”

On Friday night, Gadsden City takes on Auburn High School in a matchup that features two undefeated Class 6A teams.

With recruiting, Posey says he’s hearing the most from Mississippi State but believes Auburn, as well as Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt, might be close to offering a scholarship. He already has close to 10 offers.

This weekend, the in-state linebacker plans to visit Alabama to watch the Crimson Tide play Ole Miss in the conference home opener.
