Auburn stands high with New Orleans DB Tre Brown after back-to-back visits

New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr 2024 defensive back Tre Brown was in attendance for Auburn’s junior day. That was only two short weeks after he visited Auburn the first time.

Brown made back-to-back trips to the plains all the way from New Orleans. He is not only a star safety at his school, but a star shortstop on the baseball team as well. He was first in Auburn to attend a baseball camp.

When Auburn secondary coach Zac Etheridge knew Brown would be on campus, the visit dueled as a football trip as well–and that resulted in an invite back for junior day, which Brown jumped on.

Brown does not yet have a ranking from any recruiting services, but currently holds offers from Toledo, Arkansas, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Auburn. He says that in-state LSU has been showing interest as well as many other schools.

First visit brought on second visit

Brown was on campus Jan. 15 for a baseball camp, but also took an unofficial football visit.

“The reason for my first visit, I was actually already going to be on campus for the baseball camp,” Brown said. “The coach (Etheridge) said I could come on the football visit, too. That first time was great. The first time seeing the new facility was really nice. They’ve got some new stuff in there. It was great.”

According to him, baseball and football are on equal footing. Neither is a primary sport.

“I’d probably say both, they’re probably the same,” Brown said.

How did Brown make it back to junior day at Auburn a little over a month later?

“That was Coach Zac Etheridge (who invited),” Brown said. “He’s a great guy, really genuine. I had a little talk with him. He’s real, he’s a real person. He loves Auburn. The fact that he played there and came back to coach. It was nice, you can tell he really loves it.”

Brown feels as though Etheridge holds him in high regard.

“I feel like he really feels like I can make a difference in their defense, be a playmaker,” Brown said. He feels like I can come there and make a difference. He talks about the culture of Auburn and what it’s like to be there as a player since he played there. My style of play, he likes that, too. Also, about the academic standards at Auburn, too.”

Auburn stands high with Brown

After two back-to-back visits, where do the Tigers stand with Brown?

“I feel like they (Auburn) stand high with me,” Brown said. “I feel like they really want me and that I could come in there and play.”

Although he is unranked, Brown now holds four SEC offers and is receiving interest from many others. His aggressive nature as a safety and his skills as a shortstop in baseball make him an intriguing prospect.

How would Brown describe his own game?

“5-foot-11 175,” Brown said. “Having a fast a physical playing style. Playing down hill when it’s time to make a tackle, also being able to play in the back (in coverage) real well.”
