Frost, a Rivals250 to Watch 2011 prospect, arrived in Auburn Thursday night and left Saturday afternoon.

"They really opened up to me as soon as I get there. They showed me everything and were willing to go above and beyond in terms of all the things they could show me, meeting players, meeting people that go to the University and things like that.

Every coach really took a lot of time to talk to me, go over film with me and tell me how they'd like to use me in their program....
