Gus went on his first recruiting visit today to current AU recruit in Huntsville, Alabama. Malzahn visited linebacker commit Cameron Toney. Needless to say the young man is stoked! So am I!
He talked to the young man about what his plans will be while at AU, here is what he had to say:
Malzahn had the opportunity to talk to Toney about the hire of Ellis Johnson and what to expect on the defensive side of the ball.
“He said he doesn’t want to stay 4-3, he wants multiple fronts and wants to change it up depending on who we’re playing and what we’re playing against,” said Toney. “Coach said we’re playing with a team that’s going to score points every game. Coach talked about Coach Johnson and how experienced he is.”
An important question Toney inquired about was the fate of the assistant coaches that he grew to love during the recruiting process.
“He’s still thinking about the offensive coordinator, that should happen the next two days, and then allow that coordinator to bring in their assistants. He wants great guys and really disciplined coaches,” said Toney.
