Auburn QB commit Tyler Queen making a nice recovery 

By Michael Carvell

One of the feel-good moments of the summer has been watching Tyler Queen throw spirals again.

Queen is a senior quarterback from North Cobb High School who committed early to Auburn.

Queen got a scare last spring when he suffered an elbow injury while playing baseball (pitching).

There was even a possibility that Queen might miss his senior season of football.

I’m happy to report that Queen says his recovery is going nicely. He’s at about “80 to 90 percent” and hopes to be entirely back to his old self by the start of the season.

Queen talked about his rehab and his recruiting for Auburn in the below video:

He's not lightning fast but deceptively fast. He's got a long stride like Cam and smart with the ball.

Good for him. I don't like to see injuries derail anyone chances regardless of who they play for.

He is a very good QB, he is kind of Tebowish.
