Auburn is “in talks” with more QBs on the transfer plate

Auburn, Alabama – Hugh FreezeThe 2023 starting quarterback could be on Auburn’s current roster, but it’s still no surprise that the Tigers’ new head coach would want to evaluate and add at least one more player from the transfer market.

On One Day, Auburn Added More Depth to Quarterback – With 3-Star Signing and Former Liberty Commitment Hank Brown — After Auburn’s only transfer, visiting QB who has so far signed elsewhere, Freese said he and his offensive staff are committed to bringing in the quarterback, and will continue to evaluate available players at the position moving forward.

“Yes, we (will be seeking a QB transfer),” Freese said Wednesday during the signing-day press conference. “If it’s the right choice, we think we can win matches with him.”

1st place in the 247 sports transfer rankings, NC State Devin Learyofficially visited Auburn over the weekend but committed to and signed with Kentucky this week.

Freeze is also set to welcome another elite signal caller, Coastal Carolina Transfer Grayson McCallLast weekend, his visit was canceled at the last minute. Auburn Undercover reported that an academic hurdle led to the cancellation of McCall’s visit, as the prolific passer (77 touchdowns and seven interceptions in three seasons as a starter) needs a significant amount of credits before he is eligible to play for Auburn.

So, with signing day now mostly over for Auburn in the high school ranks — barring a few expected additions — Freeze and his crew will return to their transfer pad after two days off for the holidays and redirect their attention to other quarterback targets.

“We’ve gone back and forth with our ratings for them, and we’re kind of looking at that list now,” said Freese. “And (we were) in talks with the next guy, and hopefully we’ll get the right one.”

Transfer visits can resume on January 4 Hudson Card (Texas), Brennan Armstrong (Virginia) and Luke Altmaier (be a miss).

Auburn back Robbie Ashfordwho threw for seven touchdowns and seven fumbles in nine starts, as well as a former LSU transfer TJ Finley and a 4-star redshirt freshman Holden Gerner.

“I think it comes from our system,” Freese said earlier this month of his past success with midfielders. “I think I teach in a way that helps them understand the game, where the game needs to be played in the post-shot game — which is a little bit different. A lot of coaches don’t feel good about giving up that control. But I have to believe I can teach him well with what It’s enough for quarterbacks to know, “Okay, the coach taught me after hits, this safety is the entry player, that’s the field I need to play in.”

A late addition to the class, committed on Tuesday, Brown is rated the 69th quarterback in the class out of Nashville, where he won a state title playing with Trent Defler at Lipscomb Academy.

Brown, who threw 47 touchdowns on just three interceptions on 73 percent passing last season, has been committed to Liberty since June.

“I’m big on not signing a midfielder I haven’t seen before,” Friese said. “I’m very uncomfortable about it. And I’ve watched this guy make every throw you need to make. And he’s a great guy, a great family, and he’ll be a great addition to our driving and changing room and we see how he competes in throwing footballs, because he has an association arm.” American football. I’ve seen it with my own eyes.”
