It’s a ’10 out of 10' for Rivals100 edge

AUBURN | Of the eight official visitors this weekend, Keldric Faulk might be the one Auburn needs the most.

The Tigers only have three scholarship edges on the current roster and two are seniors.

“I feel like they want me to sign pretty bad,” said Faulk. “I’m taking a real good look at it just to get a feel of it and see if this is what I want to do. That’s why I came back.


“Since they’re so short on numbers, the play-time factor plays a big role. I just don’t want to come to school just off of play-time. I’m going to be here for the next four years so I want to go somewhere I’m happy at.”

Fortunately for Auburn, Faulk appears to be pretty comfortable at Auburn. The Rivals 100 edge from Highland (Ala.) Home was in AU for the sixth or seventh time.

“This was a 10 out of 10. I really enjoyed myself up here this weekend,” he said. “It went good. This weekend was great. Had a real great time as I expected it to be.”

Not surprisingly, Faulk spent a lot of time with AU edge coach Roc Bellantoni going over AU’s scheme and how they would use him.

“Coach Roc is real great. One of my favorite coaches,” he said.

Faulk officially visited Clemson last weekend and will be at Florida June 17 and Florida State June 24.

“All of them pretty much stand at the same spot,” said Faulk. “I just got to evaluate it a little bit more.”

Faulk plans to make a decision toward the end of July.

It’s going to be a real tough one,” he said.

Faulk said he’ll likely return to Auburn for Big Cat weekend at the end of July. He is rated a 4-star and the nation’s No. 53 overall prospect and No. 5 weakside defensive end.
