After being offered by Auburn during an unofficial visit to the school last weekend, Stanton Truitt sat down with his father to discus his college options.
Stanton Truitt says he is done with visits.
Before long, things became crystal clear.
"We looked at all the schools we've visited and everything they had to offer," Truitt told Auburn Undercover. "After looking at Auburn and comparing it to everything else, it was by far the best thing we'd been to. It was everything I was looking for."
Because of that, Truitt will look no more.
On Wednesday morning, he committed to the Tigers.
The three-star athlete from Monroe Area (Ga.), who is being recruited by Auburn as a slot receiver, chose the Tigers over programs such as Florida and Kentucky. He planned to visit both of those schools, along with Stanford, before the month ended, but claimed Wednesday those trips are off.
"I'm done," Truitt said.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Truitt is ranked as the No. 38 athlete in the 247Composite. While playing a lot of quarterback last season, he accounted for more than 2,000 yards of offense.
Additionally, Truitt anchored a state championship 4x100 relay team.
According to Truitt, he consistently runs the 40-yard dash in less than 4.4 seconds. That speed was a big part of what attracted Auburn to him.
Truitt's recruitment was handled by Dameyune Craig and Charlie Haribson.
"They did things very well," Truitt said. "I've been talking to Coach Craig ever since I went to junior day."
Truitt, who is commit No. 11 for the Tigers, thinks he is a perfect fit for the Auburn offense.
"Just looking at the offense, it's proven," Truitt said. "Coach [Gus] Malzahn has proven himself at every school he's been to. His offense is known to work. He pretty much invented the Wildcat, and that was big for me. I'm going to play slot and some Wildcat."
What is Auburn getting in Truitt?
"A homerun threat," Truitt said. "Every play can be a big play. That's what the fans want."
According to Truitt, the Auburn staff was excited to hear he was heading to the Plains.
"They were really fired up," he said. "Coach Craig was very happy. He was with his family when I told him. I could hear him. He was really excited. That reaction from him was really big."
