Auburn RB reportedly enters NCAA transfer portal
Auburn’s running back room could be taking a hit ahead of the first spring under new head coach Bryan Harsin.
Multiple outlets, including AL.com, are reporting that Auburn running back D.J. Williams has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. Entering the portal does not bound a player to leave the school. On some occasions, players withdraw from the portal and return to the team. Williams entering his name into the transfer portal allows him to be contacted by other teams.
A sophomore, Williams was fourth on the team in rushing production, generating 199 yards and 3 touchdowns on 38 carries. His average of 5.24 yards per carry was second on the team behind freshman standout Tank Bigsby (6.04).
Out of Sebring (Florida), Williams was rated 4-stars, the No. 21 running back, No. 40 recruit in the Sunshine State and No. 319 prospect overall nationally in the class of 2019 on the 247Sports Composite. He collected 19 other scholarship offers in the process, including Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Williams would be the second Auburn running back to enter the transfer portal. Mark-Antony Richards entered the portal ahead of the Citrus Bowl game.
