Playmaker Demetrius Hart likes Auburn for more than just Football

Dhart Demetrius Hart is a highly sought after running back out of Orlando by way of Dr. Phillips High. Auburn would love to have his services. And when it comes down to it, he may give Auburn a chance for reasons other than you think.

When people think of Auburn, they think many things, but one constant they always seem to think of is the history of their running backs. Running Back U, if you will. Demetrius Hart would fit right into Auburn’s forte of bringing in top tailbacks, and Coach Chizik and Co. would love to have the versatile Hart in their backfield.

Hart, who simply goes by “Dee,” was scheduled to come to Big Cat Weekend last week, but was unable to make it up to Auburn.   “I wasn’t able to come up there this weekend, but hopefully I can get up there soon. I don’t know if I’m making it this summer, but I will definitely be up there for an official visit when school starts back,” Hart said.

Don’t read anything into the chance that Hart won’t make it up this summer. He isn’t planning on any visits during his summer break. “I’ve got the 7 on 7 camp with my team and basically just working out and training for my senior year. I doubt I’m gonna take any visits,” he added. A

uburn is a very appealing choice to Hart for a variety of reasons, but the one constant that potential recruits love is the Malzahn offense. “It’s the most unique in the SEC. With that, the family concept that they preach about the program, and then you have the fans and all that, it’s a good place,” said Hart. Hart has plenty of offers, but he has narrowed it down to a few favorites, with none sticking out more than the other. “Michigan, Auburn, Florida, Alabama, Florida, and Miami all have caught my eye the most.”

Each one of those schools he says has an equal chance, and it’s no secret that many think that Michigan has the inside track for his signature after he visited for their Spring Game with his mother. With the rumors and self-imposed sanctions surrounding the Michigan, Hart said that will not affect his decision at all. Hart’s teammate and friend Hasean Clinton-Dix, one of the top defensive backs in the country, has committed to Alabama, but Hart stressed that doesn’t mean he’s going to Alabama, either. “His commitment won’t affect mine. Not at all.”

What might separate Auburn from the rest? You might think it’d be the family concept, or the SEC, or the coaching staff. Well, you’d be wrong. While he loves the staff, and Auburn, he likes their business school even more. “Honestly, the business school is one of the top in the country, and it really appeals to me. They will give me a great education. I also love the fact of how they would use me in their offense, which wouldn’t just be out of the backfield,” Hart added.

Coach Boulware and Coach Grimes have been after him the hardest, and they’ve built a good relationship with Hart. “They’re some of the best guys I’ve talked to. Coach Boulware keeps it real and tells it like it is, and Coach Grimes lets me know all about the school and the program and all that. They’re great guys.”

When it comes down to it, Hart will be looking for a school that combines a top education and the opportunity to play early. “Playing time will be another huge thing, as well as the area of the school and basically their reputation,” he said.

Hart has done a great job of narrowing it down thus far, but he’s in no hurry to make a decision. Auburn is very much in the picture, and could just be the dark horse no expects Hart to choose. Keep an eye on this rising running back in the coming months.
