On the verge of another Auburn visit, Anthony Schwartz announced he was down to two schools: Auburn and Florida.
“I’m between Florida and Auburn right now,” Schwartz told SEC Country. “I just felt that those are two schools that like me the most, and I feel like I good go do great at both of those schools. Both of them aren’t really cities. They’re more college towns. I felt like everything just flows there.”
The 4-star wide receiver from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has been linked for Florida for the entirety of his recruitment. There were times throughout the summer that Schwartz was in the next-to-commit conversation for the Gators.
But he waited.
“I’m just trying to take my time because I was kinda rushing it before,” Schwartz said. “I could commit anytime I feel comfortable. But I’m going to take my time and probably make my decision at the end of the season. I’m going to try to get it before signing day, during December.”
The Tigers hopes to be a beneficiary of that patience. Schwartz visited for the spring game and again in July. He’ll be back this weekend as Auburn takes on Ole Miss.
Auburn only needs to take three wide receivers in the Class of 2018, but it’ll likely take four for the right guy. With two committed so far, there are really four names that appear to be in position to fill at those last couple spots — Justyn Ross, Seth Williams, Tommy Bush and Schwartz.
As an out-of-state prospect, Schwartz has shown plenty of continued interest in the Tigers, mostly because of his relationship with wide receivers coach Kodi Burns.
“I have a good relationship with their receiver coach, coach Burns, so every time I go there, I feel they have a great family over there,” Schwartz said.
Schwartz is ranked the No. 172 overall prospect by the 247Sports composite. He’s a nationally-ranked track star, as well, so his visit will almost certainly entail more interaction with Auburn’s track and field program, something he toured on previous visits.
It’s worth noting: All 23 predictions in the 247Sports Crystal Ball are in Florida’ favor.
