Auburn defensive back Tim Irvin details why he transferred from team
On May 25, sophomore defensive back Tim Irvin announced his intent to transfer from Auburn University. Since that time, Irvin has heard from East Carolina, Maryland, Oregon State and West Virginia, according to AL.com.
“I just felt I wasn’t comfortable or happy,” Irvin said. “Auburn is a good school. I felt they could have used me different.”
Though none of the four schools he has heard from are within the Southeastern Conference, Irvin initially committed to Texas over Florida, Miami and West Virginia, before flipping his commitment to Auburn. Irvin took to Twitter on May 24, thanking Auburn.

Irvin was a four-star prospect coming out of high school, before recording 18 tackles as a true freshman last season for the Tigers. Of course when he initially committed, he thought he would be playing for then-defensive coordinator, Will Muschamp. Muschamp, of course, took the head coaching job at South Carolina on Dec. 6, 2015.
Regardless of who ends up successfully obtaining Irvin’s transfer, they will likely have to wait a year to reap the rewards, as Irvin will have to sit out the 2016 season if he transfers to an FBS program.
