WINTER GARDEN, Florida — Auburn’s recruiting radar could scope Woody Barrett’s backyard again.
Receiver Naquan Renalds of Winter Garden, Fla., is garnering attention from Auburn recruiters. He has offers from Tennessee, Kentucky, Syracuse and Florida Atlantic heading into spring drills at West Orange High School, the home of Barrett, the incoming Auburn quarterback.
Renalds reminds West Orange coach Bob Head of Auburn receiver Tony Stevens, who hailed from nearby Evans High. “Not as tall, but probably faster,” Head said of the 6-foot-2, 175-pound Renalds.
Spring practice begins Monday at West Orange High School. Auburn coaches will evaluate Renalds this spring and decide whether to offer him a scholarship.
“I know they have some good ones after this past year (four signees), but he’s a very dynamic player a very tough and fierce competitor,” Head said. “He’ll high point a ball. He’ll catch the ball with his hands. He’s probably a 4.6 guy but very, very fast on the football field. He’s not a track guy. Long strider, but really, really tough.”
