RB Shon Carson (5-9 195) of Lake City was in Auburn with his baseball team and was offered by the Tigers while working out in their weight room. "I had never heard from them before," he said. "They saw me in their weight room and started talking to me and then they offered."
Carson says the coaches showed him some film that interested him. "They showed me how much they run the ball," said Carson.
His other offers are from USC, Clemson, East Carolina, North Carolina, Florida State, Tennessee, Alabama, Southern Cal, Kentucky, and UCLA. He has an offer from USC in baseball as well and says he is interested in playing both sports in college.
Carson has not taken any visits this summer. "I've been real busy with baseball," he said. He did say LSU, Miami, Georgia, and possibly Auburn are schools he is strongly considering for official visits.
Never miss a local story.
Carson says he has no favorites and has not narrowed his list. "I'll do that some time after the season," said Carson.
