You know AU wouldn't report high school coach turned us down
There is zero chance a highschool coach is going to reject a chance at any SEC school. This is just silly. I could see him rejecting Troy or maybe UAB. But Auburn? not a chance. That's a "once in a lifetime" type oportunity. Even if the team around you sucks, getting your foot in the door will open up all kinds of college level options in the future.
