One-time Auburn commit Nate Craig-Myers will be catching passes from current Tigers commit Woody Barrett this weekend, as the two highly touted prospects participate in the annual Under Armour All-America game in Orlando, Fla.
And while Barrett, a four-star quarterback, says his focus isn’t on recruiting prospects to Auburn, he offered his thoughts on the Tigers’ chances of luring Craig-Myers back to The Plains after he de-committed in May.
“I think we have a pretty good shot,” Barrett, the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback in the nation, told SEC Country. “We haven’t really talked about it yet. Right now, we’re just relaxing and enjoying ourselves.”
Craig-Myers, the No. 3 receiver in the country, resides not too far from Barrett in Tampa, Fla., where he’s become one of the most coveted uncommitted prospects in the country. Florida, Florida State, North Carolina and Ole Miss will each have a hat on the table when it comes time to make his decision in February.
Interestingly enough, both he and his brother, four-star cornerback Jayvaughn Myers, mentioned Auburn when asked what school(s) could land the Under Armour All-American siblings.
“I’d probably say the only one that I could see both of us playing at is Auburn,” Myers recently told SEC Country, who then predicted that his brother will re-commit to the Tigers. “I know for sure he likes them a lot.”
But Barrett has no intentions of pressing the issue any further, though he admits he wouldn’t mind a handful of uncommitted receivers at the event joining him at Auburn.
“I’m not really recruiting, I’m just having fun,” Barrett said. “If they want to come to Auburn, they can join and play. Other than that, I’m just enjoying myself, the coaches.”
