Bryan Harsin weighs in on transfer portal, importance of summer workouts at Auburn
Auburn football coach Bryan Harsin stepped into the radio booth during the Tigers’ baseball game on Saturday to offer his thoughts on a host of topics surrounding college football.
For starters, Harsin said he expects full capacity at Jordan-Hare Stadium this fall, and the goal is to have the Tiger Walk and other gameday festivities.
“If we continue down a good path … then we’re going to have that opportunity,” Harsin said, per Jordan D. Hill of the Opelika-Auburn News.
The Tigers in recent weeks and months have seen both sides of the transfer portal, and it’s become one of the most talked issues facing college football going forward. Harsin addressed how his program would deal with it.
“You’ve got a chance to talk to a few guys, get to know them … Guys are making that move,” he said. “They’re making it for a reason, and you’re also bringing in guys to help your football team.”
This summer, as the players and coaches prepare for the second half of the offseason, Harsin understands the value of having a strong transition for the program.
“It’s definitely important for us as a new staff, there’s no doubt about it … Not having to see players and be around them for so long, this June is going to be great for everybody … It’s going to be very competitive,” he said.
