Incoming freshman receiver at Auburn reportedly enters transfer portal
Bryan Harsin’s new Auburn program is dealing with a hit to roster depth as the team gets summer workouts underway.
Hal Presley, a 3-star wide receiver in Auburn’s 2021 class, has entered the transfer portal, sources close to the situation told Auburn Undercover and 247Sports. The report added that Presley arrived on campus in early June for summer workouts but left this week and is now back home in Texas. Because he signed his letter of intent and had joined the program, he is eligible to enter the transfer portal.
The 6-foot-3 and 197 pounder is from Mansfield, Texas.
This isn’t the first time Presley has had a change of heart recently. Presley originally committed to Baylor last May and was for five months until he reopened his recruitment. He chose the Tigers over USC.
He was the second wide receiver in Auburn’s 2021 class, joined by Tar’Varish Dawson, the No. 25-ranked athlete in the nation from the Fort Myers area in Florida.
Presley was part of the “Dedicated Dozen” group of players who signed with Auburn in December, and he was the only receiver in the group. Coming out of high school, Auburn described him as a fluid performer with speed and quickness, and his senior season in high school, he had 32 catches for 755 yards and 13 TD.
