Auburn football adds commitment from former Jackson State WR transfer
Auburn football added a commitment from former Jackson State wide receiver Shane Hooks Sunday afternoon, yet another addition to the Tigers’ incoming transfer WR class.
Play Underdog For Heat-Celtics Game 6! Who ya got?
Shane Hooks is the player in question. Hooks, who stands at 6-4, 205 pounds, was Jackson State’s top receiver last season, totaling 64 receptions for 748 yards and 10 touchdowns. He could be an immediate starter for Hugh Freeze and company.
Hooks joins fellow incoming transfer WRs Jyaire Shorter, Nick Mardner and Caleb Burton.

A concerned Twitter user tagged Freeze following the commitment and told him to “Take a break.” His response?
Need one for sure. Lol

Yeah, that check out.
Auburn has been on a tear in the transfer portal lately, thanks to Freeze. The Tigers rank No. 2 behind only Colorado (and nobody is catching the Buffaloes) on 247Sports’ team transfer ranking metric.
Auburn has added a total of 20 transfers in the 2023 cycle.

Wasting no time. Love it. Hope all these players gel well and we can get the system humming again soon.
Here’s a look at how the Princeton Academic Ratings from all the SEC schools stacked up, from highest to lowest:
SOUTH CAROLINA: 74
OLE MISS: 71
TEXAS A&M: 71
MISSISSIPPI STATE: NR (No ranking listed for the Bulldogs)
So…AU is in the top echelon.
