Auburn with late push for Adeboyejo

Quincy Adeboyejo, WR

Tigers' new offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, who made the move from Arkansas State with head coach Gus Malzahn, will soon be visiting the home of Cedar Hill (Tx) receiver Quincy Adeboyejo.

It was the night of Sunday, Jan. 6 that longtime Texas A&M commitment Quincy Adeboyejo made the difficult decision to pull from the Aggies and open things back up on the recruiting trail.

His phone rung off the hook with schools interested in swiping, Texas Tech being one of the first. Having made an official visit to Nebraska last weekend, Adeboyejo will trip to Texas Tech Friday (1/18).

Auburn will follow.

"Auburn's coming to my house Monday night," Adeboyejo reported. "Coach Lashlee and maybe Coach Malzahn." (Coincidentally the two that recruited his quarterback Damion Hobbs to Arkansas State.)

Adeboyejo then travels to Ole Miss Jan. 25.

He does not have a visit yet scheduled for the weekend of Feb. 1, the final weekend before National Signing Day. He will be "playing by ear."

As far as what he'll be looking for on these trips, "My mom, she sat me down and told me I need to look past football," said Adeboyejo. "I need to look at, 'Can I live in this town for the next four years? Can I be successful in this university?' So I'm looking at that, of course. I'm looking for somewhere where I can make an immediate impact. I want to go somewhere where I can come in and play right away."

The 6-foot-3, 175-pounder capped his senior season in the Texas 5A-II State Championship, finishing with 1,265 yards and 17 touchdowns on 91 catches. Recommended Stories
