Former Ole Miss OL Austin Golson to redshirt in 2014 for Auburn
Austin Golson transferred from Ole Miss to Auburn to be closer to family, but as of now he will not receive a waiver from the NCAA to play in 2014.
Austin Golson is not expected to play for Auburn in 2014 after transferring from Ole Miss to be closer to his family, offensive line coach J.B. Grimes said Monday night.
"As of today, Austin will have to redshirt this year," Grimes said via the Ledger-Enquirer.
Golson requested a transfer to be closer to home (Pratville, Ala.) since both of his grandfathers are dealing with health issues. Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze released Golson under "normal transfer rules," so a redshirt year has always been a possibility.
The 6-foot-5, 309-pound lineman appeared in 12 games as a freshman for the Rebels in 2013 as a reserve right guard and finished spring practice as a first-string right tackle. He was a four-star recruit coming out of high school, and Grimes said Monday night that there is "no better experience" than SEC play after watching Golson's freshman year tape.
