Auburn may soon be taking a depth hit at linebacker.

That’s because rising senior Richard McBryde has entered the NCAA transfer portal, as first reported by Matt Zenitz of McBryde missed all of last season due to a neck injury.

The senior came to Auburn rated as a four-star prospect and a top 200 overall recruit in the nation as a member of the Tigers’ 2015 recruiting class. He was also an Under Armour All-American coming out of Charles Henderson High School out of Troy, Alabama. Unfortunately, McBryde has failed to live up to that billing on the field during his time on The Plains.

McBryde earned his undergraduate degree in August, which would make him a graduate transfer if he left Auburn. It should be noted that just because a player enters the transfer portal, that does not officially mark the player’s decision to leave the school via transfer, however, it is the first step in that process.
