Recruit-by-recruit breakdown

SUNDAY NOONISH
Post No. 999

I personally interfaced with three official visitors today, though one (Jonathan Atchison) asked that his uncle speak for him. Recruits leave from a variety of locations and the HABOTN, as a one-reporter operation, can't cover locations concurrently.

Here's what I have:

JAMAR TRAVIS
Defensive tackle from Brewton (W.S. Neal High)
Southern Miss commitment

Player host: Jared Cooper

On getting an offer this weekend: "At first I did not think I was going to get offered. I was sitting down talking to coach (Gene Chizik) and he just offered me."

On what the offer meant to him: "I was excited. I've been waiting on an offer from Auburn. I'm not sure whether I'm going to commit or not yet. I'm committed to Southern Miss. I'm just going to see how it goes."

On the effect of having a former high-school teammate, Jared Cooper, playing at Auburn: "It's a lot better because you know he's going to tell you the straight out truth how it is. He just said he loves it. I know if he loves it, hey, we're from the same town and the same team. I know I would, too."

On meeting Tracy Rocker, who coaches the Tigers' defensive line: "He was just saying if you work hard, you get what you put into it. He has an impressive resume. Like I said, I'm looking forward to talking more with him and we'll just see how it goes."




IZAUEA ("Isaiah") LANIER
Defensive back from Carrollton (Gordo High)
Auburn commitment

Player host: Ben Tate

On his Auburn recruitment: "I came down here with Courtney (Taylor) starting in ninth grade, so I've always been about Auburn. The first offer I got was from Kentucky. Troy offered me. Mississippi State offered me a few days after Auburn did. I didn't hear anything from Auburn until Coach Chizik got here."

Are you definitely signing with Auburn: "I loved Auburn since ninth grade. I stayed with Courtney back then and met a lot of people. I love Auburn. This weekend was very nice, but my mind was already set on Auburn. There's no questions about that."

On wearing a University of Alabama hat today: "This is for the state of Alabama. I'm all about Auburn. There aren't many people like me in Carrollton. It's all Alabama, but a lot of people are changing their minds after (Taylor). He's changed a lot of peoples' minds."




JONATHAN ATCHISON
Linebacker from suburban Atlanta (Douglass)
Alabama commitment; former Auburn commitment

**Atchison's uncle, John Williams, spoke for him.

On if Atchison is seriously considering a switch back to Auburn: "He's here. I would imagine so, yeah. He's going to do what's best for him in 10 days."

On Atchison's finalists: "Here and Tuscaloosa."

On the effect of assistant coach James Willis' recent jump to Alabama: "That's got nothing to do with what Jonathan is going to do."

On Atchison's decision timetable: "He's got until the 4th (of February). He's got 10 days."

I'm feeling pretty good about Atchison. He probably thinks he has more of a chance playing here, which is true. No hard feelings on my part.

What is your feeling on Coleman and Stallworth? They make me the most nervous about decommitting right now.
