Chad Morris names freshman he expects to help Auburn's offense the most this season
The way Chad Morris tells it, one freshman has really caught his eye during Auburn’s ongoing fall camp.
While there is a ton of hype surrounding running back Tank Bigsby, the first name mentioned by the first-year Auburn offensive coordinator on Thursday when discussing impact freshmen on The Plains this season was receiver, Ze’Vian Capers.
Interestingly enough, the four-star athlete from Georgia was previously committed to Morris’ Arkansas program but later decommitted in order to play for the Tigers.
While Capers wanted to play closer to home, in the end, he got to play for the coach he initially wanted to suit up for after Morris was dismissed in Fayetteville and Gus Malzahn offered the offensive coordinator role to the former Arkansas head coach.
Despite the fact Auburn returns a loaded receiver room with the likes of Seth Williams, Anthony Schwartz and Eli Stove are all back for another season on The Plains, there’s room for a young receiver to come in and make an impact immediately in the offense.
Based on the latest buzz from Auburn, that receiver is going to be Capers.
