Auburn lands transfer from All-Ivy League OL Eric Wilson
Auburn’s offensive line picked up some depth with the commitment of former Harvard offensive lineman Eric Wilson.
Wilson tweeted on Tuesday that after he graduates in May, he’ll transfer to Auburn.
The graduate transfer chose Auburn over offers from LSU, Florida State, N.C. State, Memphis and Minnesota.
“I love Auburn,” Wilson told Rivals. “My parents love Auburn. It’s a great school and a great community.”
Wilson, who could play guard or center at Auburn, was named All-Ivy League second-team in 2019. In 2020, Wilson was a first-team selection on Phil Steele’s Preseason All-Ivy League team before the season was canceled because of COVID-19. At Harvard last season, Wilson played in all 10 games for a second straight season.
Wilson, who is 6-foot-4 and 315 pounds, attended high school at Benilde-St. Margaret’s in Minnesistra, Minn. In high school, he was a USA Today first team all-state, and nominee for Mr. Football in Minnesota in his senior season.
“I’ll have one year of eligibility, possibly two,” Wilson said.
2020 has been full of surprises. After graduating in May, I will be moving to Auburn, AL as a grad student and to play football for the Auburn Tigers. Thanks so much to my teammates, friends, and coaches at Harvard who have made these four years unforgettable. #10000men #WarDamn pic.twitter.com/tlN5VRyrua
