Auburn wrapped up its summer camp season with Saturday's senior mini-camp, which brought in 270 prospects, including a deep group of offensive skill players.

Quarterback Ryan Mossakowski was among the top Auburn targets in attendance. The 6-foot-4, 201-pounder from Frisco (Texas) Centennial led the quarterback group, showing especially impressive accuracy

Clermont (Fla.) quarterback Jeremy Wright, who also worked with the defensive backs, impressed with both groups.

The top-performing wide receivers were Gadsden City (Ala.) Rivals100 wide receiver Kendall Kelly, Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit's Erick McGriff - the son of ex-major-leaguer Fred McGriff - Mobile (Ala.) Murphy junior Solomon Patton and Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson wideout Richard Drake.

Kelly and McGriff currently have offers from Auburn, but the others could pick up offers soon.

"I learn something new from him every time I come down here," Kelly said. "He treats me like one of the players. If I need help with something, I go to him and he's right there."
