Auburn tight end commit Luke Deal of Greenwood (S.C.) Emerald attended last Saturday’s Auburn-Tennessee game at Jordan-Hare Stadium and while the Tigers didn’t come out on top Deal said he and the other commits had another good bonding afternoon.

Before the game, he was spotted chatting with the likes of Bo Nix, Owen Pappoe and Colby Wooden. Additionally, Deal and his family spent time with Auburn tight ends coach Larry Porter, who was instrumental in his recruitment. Late in the game, Deal paced behind the south endzone like a nervous fan as the Tigers tried to rally against the Vols. While on campus, Deal also did a little recruiting -- something he also does when he's back home.

How solid is Deal, the No. 12 tight end nationally in the 247Sports rankings, to the Tigers, what is the general vibe like right now with the Auburn commits and what can he provide to the team when he arrives in 2019? 

Here’s a quick Q&A with Deal, who committed to Auburn back in May and already has attended multiple Tigers games this season:
