Threat announced his decision to leave Auburn football last month. He moved from linebacker to Buck defensive end to tight end during his time with the Tigers. The former Under Armour All-America selection from Spanish Fort, Ala., played in four games for Auburn in 2017.
Threat will join fellow 2016 signee Landon Rice at Jacksonville State. Rice was announced as a new addition to Jacksonville State’s roster as a transfer from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College on Monday.
Rice was “found responsible” for sexual assault following a Title IX investigation at Auburn. According to Tom Green of AL.com, Jacksonville State said in a statement the sanctions against Rice stemming from the investigation “expired” last September.
In 2017, Jacksonville State had former Auburn players Roc Thomas and Justin Thomas-Thornton on its roster. Thomas-Thornton has one more year of eligibility.
