Ole Miss sophomore offensive linesman Austin Golson has announced that he’s leaving Oxford….to walk-on at Auburn.

Golson played for Ole Miss as a reserve right guard as a freshman in 2013 and it was thought that he could have started in 2014.

Anyway, he won’t.

He will not receive a scholarship in 2014 from Auburn, but will walk on and pay his student fees.

Golson’s not leaving for any other reason that he wants to be closer to his sick grandparents. He’s from Prattville, AL, which is a just over an hour away on I-85.

Golson was offered by Alabama, Auburn and Florida State – and recruited heavily by the former two in high school.

He was ranked the ninth-best offensive linesman in the country by 24-7Sports.com and sixth-best overall player in Alabama. He was the only player in that top six not to go to Alabama.
