The 6-foot, 195-pound Caylin Newton will be eligible immediately as a graduate transfer. He entered the NCAA’s transfer portal in October after playing in four games. He will walk on with the Tigers, who are already at their 85-player scholarship limit.
Newton was the 2018 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference offensive player of the year after passing for 2,629 yards and rushing for 504 yards.
He was the league’s rookie of the year as a freshman.
Auburn returns starting quarterback Bo Nix, but has scant experience behind him.
