Auburn’s search for viable replacements along the offensive line has led the Tigers to a graduate transfer from the Northeast.
On Wednesday, the Tigers offered offensive tackle Tyler Catalina of Rhode Island University, per his brother, Tony.

Offensive line coach Herb Hand contacted Catalina last Tuesday but didn’t extend an offer at the time. Catalina, who graduates in May, will be eligible immediately after. He signed a financial-aid agreement with Iowa State in December but has since garnered interest from several other programs.
The Tigers missed on two targets last week in three-star offensive tackle Lucas Niang and junior college tackle Breontae Matthews, who committed to Kansas State.
