Jay Jay Wilson is headed to Auburn as the former Arizona State linebacker has chosen to transfer to The Plains as a graduate transfer.
He will be eligible immediately next season for the Tigers after taking a redshirt last season in Tempe. Wilson was among the upperclassmen that utilized the new NCAA redshirt rule to his advantage in 2018. He projected as a starting linebacker heading into the season but was suspended for Arizona State’s season opener and went on to play in only four games.
Following the end of ASU’s season, Wilson decided to leave the program. He had only 11 tackles last season for ASU. Wilson’s transfer to Auburn was first reported by Auburn Undercover of 247Sports.
While he may have played linebacker for Arizona State last season, Wilson is expected to be an H-back for Auburn next season. He also has experience playing tight end for the Sun Devils.
With Chandler Cox graduating, Auburn will be looking for a new H-back next season and Wilson may just be the man to fill that important role in Gus Malzahn’s offense.
Wilson was a four-star prospect coming out of Valencia High School in the 2015 recruiting cycle. He signed with Arizona State over scholarship offers from Colorado, Utah and USC among others.
