Former Auburn WR, top-50 recruit, Nate Craig-Myers reportedly back in transfer portal
Nate Craig-Myers is one of the many seniors taking advantage of the NCAA’s extra year eligibility due to COVID. The former Auburn wide receiver is reportedly looking for a new home to play his sixth season.
Multiple outlets are reporting that Craig-Myers has entered the NCAA transfer portal. The 247Sports Composite’s No. 45 overall prospect in the class of 2016 signed with Auburn but left the Tigers program three games into the 2018 season, using a redshirt and eventually entering the NCAA transfer portal (officially introduced on Oct. 15, 2018).
Craig-Myers transferred to Colorado State, playing in 13 games for the Rams over the past two seasons. In 2019, Craig-Myers caught 23 passes for 329 yards and a touchdown. This past season, he played in four games, recording 6 catches for 68 yards. In his two full seasons at Auburn, Craig-Myers played in 25 games, logging 20 catches for 355 yards and 4 TDs.
It will be interesting to see if Gus Malzahn recruits Craig-Myers again. A transfer to UCF would have Craig-Myers a drive of roughly 100 miles on I-4 away from his old stomping grounds in Tampa.
