There might not be any college football team working harder to land a quarterback in the transfer portal than Auburn football and the Tigers are after Casey Thompson too.
As they should be. Hugh Freeze knows that he needs an upgrade if he’s going to have a shot to make some waves in the SEC during his first season and Thompson would be ideal.
The good news is that Auburn football seems like the early frontrunner. The Tigers have already got Thompson on campus for a visit according to 247 Sports and who knows, a commitment could be coming as soon as Sunday.
Of course, Casey Thompson has been through the recruiting process before and he might not want to rush things. This is his final chance to take advantage of NIL and also to impress NFL scouts before his college eligibility runs out.
Beyond that, it’s his last chance to win. Nebraska didn’t reach a bowl game last season and on top of everything else, Thompson surely wants to play for a winner.
Freeze has won everywhere he’s gone. Napier can say that too. Yet, I feel like Freeze can sell his quarterback development to Thompson, who feels like the future Auburn football starting quarterback to me.
