AUBURN | Chris Westry came into Sunday's camp determined to earn an offer from Auburn. He did and four days later the Orange Park (Fla.) Oakleaf 2-star cornerback committed.
"It wasn't too hard of a decision. I love the Auburn community and coaching staff and they really treated me like family. They actually care and keep in touch. It was the right thing to do.
"It's probably one of the greatest decisions I've made in my life so far."
Westry, 6-foot-4 and 180 pounds, came into Auburn's camp with offers from Florida, South Florida, UCF, Florida International, Charlotte and Ohio. He was a standout in position and 1-on-1 drills during the camp getting a lot of instruction from cornerbacks coach Melvin Smith.
"I'm blessed that I have the ability to do that," Westry said. "I just came in wanting to play my best and I couldn't imagine that was going to happen. I just came in and did what I was coached to do."
Joining Westry on his trip to Auburn last weekend was 2016 linebacker Shaquille Quarterman, who is committed to Miami. Westry said he plans to recruit Quarterman for the Tigers.
"It would be great to have a teammate play with you from high school," he said.
Westry said his decision is final. "I don't think I'm going to look at any more schools."
Westry had 32 tackles, one tackle-for-loss, three pass breakups and one interception as a junior.
"Nobody really threw the ball my way," he said.
