RB Grant Transfers From Bama To Auburn

For a couple of weeks it’s been rumored that running back Corey Grant would be transferring from Alabama to Auburn.  This time the rumors were true.  Grant starts summer school today on The Plains.


“I think sometimes you go to a place at the wrong time.  Alabama is a great place.  I learned a lot of things.  I got better in a lot of areas I needed to improve on.  I don’t leave Alabama with any hard feelings.  I just felt like I would be a better fit at Auburn.”


Grant was one of the top players in the state of Alabama and — according to Rivals.com — the fifth-best all-purpose back in the country as a senior in high school.  Now the Opelika native will be closer to home, though he’ll have to sit out this season.

While Grant says he has no hard feelings toward Alabama, it’s unlikely Crimson Tide fans will feel similarly.

Saban Calls Grant’s Decision To Transfer A “Bit Of A Surprise”

With rumors that former Alabama running back Corey Grant will land at Auburn continuing to swirl, Nick Saban let it be known today that the redshirt freshman’s decision to leave Tuscaloosa “was a little bit of a surprise.” 


“Corey Grant is a fine young man that we really wanted to stay in our program.  I think he was going to make a contribution to our team.  There was really no reason other than how much he thought he was going to play, although I do think he had a role on our team and I do think he would have played… but we certainly understand and want what’s best for him and wish him well.”


If Grant does land at Auburn, it’s possible that he will have to sit out two years unless he’s willing to play as a walk-on for one year.
