Class of 2015 Rivals250 watch list and Kennesaw (Ga.) Harrison quarterback Lorenzo Nunez has been to games schools like Clemson and Ohio State so far this fall, but he said witnessing Auburn's miraculous victory over Georgia is one he won't soon forget.
"That was probably one of the best games I've ever seen in my life," Nunez said. "It was exciting, I thought it was over and then they made the big play, I didn't know that was going to happen."
Nunez, who has yet to be offered by the Tigers, had a front row seat for the pandemonium in the Jordan-Hare student section.
"I was in the front near the student so it was kind of crazy because it was loud and out of control," he said. "It was crazy, the mascot was jumping around and stuff and me and my dad and my brother were grabbing each other and high-fiving and stuff, it was hectic."
After the game Nunez got a chance to talk with some of the Auburn coaches, who let him know they want to see him back on campus again in the future.
"They were just telling me about how great the game was," he said. "They want me to come back and spend more time with them. They were also talking about how it's a good school academically as well as athletically."
Nunez is good friends with current 2015 Auburn commit Tyler Queen, a fellow member of the Rivals250 watch list. He said the Tigers coaches have talked to him about a potential offer and Nunez said if they did he wouldn't shy away from the school just because of Queen.
"I like competition and I love Tyler Queen," he said. "He's been one of my friends since we were little. If it came down to it and we both went we could battle it out and that would be fine with me. I don't see what the problem with that would be."
After watching Auburn's high-powered offense put up big numbers with dual-threat Nick Marshall, Nunez said he could see himself fitting in well at Auburn.
"I like it a lot," he said. "Most people think I fit in that type of offense. I actually like their offense and how they run it. Their quarterback does a good job and they have Tre Mason to keep the defense honest."
With his junior season in the books, Nunez said he plans to visit either Clemson or Tennessee in the coming weeks. He also plans on returning to Auburn in the offseason.
"I don't have anything planned yet but eventually I will," he said. "I'll be up there again."
