Default Marlon Character/Antwuan Jackson Transferring

Quote:
Redshirt freshman defensive back Marlon Character Jr. and defensive tackle Antwuan Jackson Jr. will transfer from the Tigers, according to an interview Gus Malzahn gave with the schoolís in-house website.

Curious if we go after either. I believe Antwuan is BAW's step-brother, if my memory is correct.

He is. And I'd take both of these guys in a skinny minute. I hope we're inquiring about it assuming of course that Auburn would allow it.

AU would have to be willing to release them to another SEC school, that doesn't seem likely.

Strictly because we're in the SEC and there is always the off chance we could run into each other in the SEC Championship. We don't play AU until 2021 so it wouldn't factor in during regular season play but it technically could if both teams have great years during the same year.

Or they could go JC or CC and go where they'd like after a year...

Read Rodney Garner's comments in that article about Jackson. His comments shockingly mirror some of the problems that took our program down.

Jackson is in perfect position to get a starting spot, and he's leaving?

Character is in position to get playing time, and he's leaving?

I'm not sure our staff would look at them, at least without a JUCO year to assess their maturity and readiness to work hard.

Interestingly, that article linked to a third guy we were in the hunt for, Kyle Davis, who for whatever reason skipped the Spring for "personal reasons" and is now back on the team.

Maybe as deep a hole as our program sunk to, it's good we potentially dodged a few bullets.

Word is it was because of differences between Character and other teammates. That's what I heard elsewhere but who knows.

I believe there may very well be a Character issue.

Arden key, Kyle Davis, character all guys that probably wouldn't have worked out here based off what's happening with them at their current schools but you never know.

Or they can enroll in school wherever they like and pay for the one year. I think the limitation exists in cases where, if not released to that particular school, the new school cannot put on scholarship for the year you have to sit out. You can technically go wherever you want, but would have to pay for it the first year (when you are sitting out) if you aren't released there. If you are released there, the new school can put on scholarship while you sit a year.

Remember that is how we got Ty'son Williams. NC didn't release him to us, but his mother's military service made it possible for him to come to USC and pay for last year's school himself, I believe using a GI bill or something along the likes.

Since grades are not an issue they only have to go for a semester. They can then enroll in January as RS Sophomores. Auburn may not have an issue with coming here since we don't play them for quite some time.

Yep. As long as he is not on scholarship he can enroll anywhere he wants. He can still go on scholarship at Juco or CC.
