One of Auburn’s promising young cornerbacks announced his transfer last week and appears to be raising some questions on his way out the door.
“I just felt I wasn’t comfortable or happy,” Tim Irvin told 247Sports. “Auburn is a good school. I felt they could’ve used me different.”
The implications of his transfer are interesting to say the least. Irvin started as the team’s nickelback in cornerback-heavy defensive packages as a true freshman last year. He recorded 18 tackles in nine games and seemingly had a promising career in front of him.
The former four-star cornerback from South Florida and nephew of Pro Football Hall of Fame WR Michael Irvin originally committed to Texas before flipping to Auburn.
Irvin will have to sit out the next year due to NCAA transfer rules. He has already been in touch with several schools according to 247Sports, none in the SEC.
