Touted Ole Miss offensive lineman looking at a possible transfer

Ole Miss offensive tackle Austin Golson is looking to possibly transfer closer to home in Prattville, Alabama.

Hugh Freeze said Golson will look at his options and that nothing has been decided yet, and the reason is Golson’s two grandparents have health concerns. reported that Auburn could be a potential landing spot for Golson, and according to Northeast Mississippi News, Freeze said he would ‘probably’ not try to block a transfer to a rival SEC West school given the circumstances.

Golson was a national top 100 player and the 10th overall offensive tackle, according to 247Sports. Golson chose Ole Miss over FSU, Alabama, UNC and Auburn. Interestingly enough, Golson exited spring as the school’s No. 1 right tackle option after playing in 12 games as a freshman, mostly at the guard positions in 2013.

Losing Golson would be a blow to one of the bigger question marks the Rebels have entering 2014.
