Former Auburn quarterback announces transfer destination
Wilson Appleton has found his new home.
After spending three seasons on The Plains, the Albertville, Ala., native is moving to Columbia, South Carolina to play for Benedict College, the signal-caller announced on Tuesday. Appleton graduated from Auburn and will be eligible immediately at Benedict College.
The former Auburn walk-on quarterback appeared in one game during his time with the Tigers, last season against Samford. Appleton completed both of the passes he attempted in that game.
“This past December I graduated from Auburn University. I now have the opportunity to attend a graduate school while continuing to play the sport I love,” Appleton posted online. “My experience at Auburn has been amazing and unforgettable and it has prepared me for this next chapter of my life. I would like to say thank you to all the coaches that recruited and helped me along the way. That being said, I am happy to announce that this fall I will continue to play at Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina.”
Benedict College competes in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (also referred to as the SIAC).
Also of note, Appleton played for Coach Dale Pruitt (Jeremy Pruitt’s father) at Albertville.
