AUBURN, Ala. (WIAT) – The Auburn Tigers practiced today and the spot light is not on Nick Marshall.
All the praise is being given to former quarterback Keihl Frazier. He made the move to safety and the coaches are impressed.
Frazier has played at safety for the past 10 days. The praise doesn’t mean a start. Joshua Holsey looks to be the go to guy for now. But that doesn’t mean defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson and head coach Gus Malzahn aren’t confident in the guy who made a move for the team.
“I think every day he feels more comfortable,” said Malzahn. “It’s just like anything else, the more you do the better you’ll get at it. He’s a competitor. He’s a good football player. He understands offensive concepts and there’s a good chance he’ll be out on the field,” said Malzahn.
As far as Nick Marshall, coach says he’s really tough on himself when he makes a mistake at practice. Malzahn believes that’s a good sign for things to come.
