LAGRANGE, Georgia — Auburn might not be done on the transfer circuit this summer.
Auburn is already set to bring in two graduate transfers and could add a third before pre-season camp in August.
“You know that is a possibility, we’ll see how everything goes,” Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said.
Illinois linebacker T.J. Neal is set to arrive on campus May 15 and begin classes May 18. Miami-Ohio defensive back Marshall Taylor will arrive later this month as well.
Talk of adding a quarterback has been rampant in recent weeks, especially after Texas Tech graduate transfer Davis Webb told ESPN he would visit Auburn soon. Auburn and Webb, however, have remained quiet about the possibility of a visit ever since the report surfaced.
Schools are allowed by the NCAA to confirm whether it is recruiting certain players, but when Malzahn was asked Wednesday if Auburn is looking at possibly adding a quarterback transfer, he deflected the question.
“We’re not commenting on what we’re pursuing or not pursuing but we feel good about the three guys we have,” Malzahn said.
Webb refused to confirm whether he planned to visit Auburn when reached by SEC Country in April.
“I am keeping this private,” he told SEC Country. “It’s a big choice for myself, that’s why I am keeping it to myself.”
Auburn will have five quarterbacks on scholarship when preseason camp begins in August: Jeremy Johnson, Sean White, Tyler Queen, John Franklin III and freshman Woody Barrett. Webb will be immediately eligible wherever he enrolls this summer. He is expected to graduate from Texas Tech in May.
Webb threw 46 touchdowns and 22 interceptions during his career with the Red Raiders and was Patrick Mahomes‘ backup in 2015.
Webb had previously told FOX Sports he planned to visit Auburn in February before committing to Colorado in January.
Malzahn said Wednesday he hopes Auburn’s starting quarterback this fall is among the three top contenders exiting spring practices: Johnson, White and Franklin III.
