Auburn freshman receiver Jashawn Sheffield enters NCAA transfer portal
Not long after being suspended by Auburn, redshirt freshman receiver Jashawn Sheffield has entered the NCAA transfer portal.
This news comes after the 2019 Under Armour All-American was arrested twice in Georgia this offseason and suspended indefinitely by Auburn. Sheffield was arrested twice in a span of just 11 days — once for disorderly conduct and again on suspicion of DUI. Both charges are misdemeanors in Georgia.
News of Sheffield’s decision to enter the NCAA transfer portal was first reported by Max Olson of The Athletic. As always, it should be noted that entering the transfer portal does not guarantee a player is leaving, however, it is the first step in the process to doing so.
Sheffield appeared in just one game during his debut season at Auburn after signing as a four-star recruit out of Frederica Academy in Brunswick, Ga.
While losing depth is obviously never ideal, the Tigers are currently loaded at the receiver position with the return of Seth Williams, Anthony Schwartz, Eli Stove and the signings of Kobe Hudson, Ze’Vian Capers and J.J. Evans — all rated as four-star prospects in the program’s 2020 signing class.
