Freshman Davion Mitchell is transferring from Auburn after the Tigers' historic 2018 season.
The Hinesville, Georgia, native was a former ESPN 100 prospect and served in an important backup role behind sophomore Jared Harper.
"After my due diligence at Auburn, I have decided to further my academic studies and basketball goals elsewhere," Mitchell said on Twitter. "I want to thank Coach Pearl and the Auburn family for the opportunity to play and embracing me and taking this young boy and shaping him into a young man.
"I want to thank Coach Bruce Pearl and staff for their guidance and giving me the opportunity to make this decision. I wish the program the nothing but success."
This season, Mitchell played 17 minutes per game while averaging 3.7 points and 1.9 assists in 37 games played.
“Davion is one of the most coachable players I’ve ever had,” Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl said in a statement. “He had a great freshman season at Auburn. We wish him well moving forward.”
Mitchell's next destination is unknown at this time.
