Auburn commitment Malcolm Askew is not going to be catching too many passes much longer. The four-star athlete is likely to play cornerback when he arrives on the Plains next year.
These highlights might give the Tigers pause on choosing a position for the McCalla, Ala., athlete, however.
At a 7-on-7 camp at IMG Academy in Florida, Askew grabbed perhaps the catch of the day, hauling in a pass with one hand over two defenders to secure the win.

The quarterback, Malik Cunningham, is headed to Louisville. He can certainly put the ball on the money. Still, the grab is pretty outstanding. Not an easy one to make, but Askew reels it in.
And this kind of play and athleticism should certainly make Auburn fans excited for the next four years. If Askew can haul in receptions like this, he should snag his fair share of interceptions, too.
