Auburn has bolstered its secondary with addition of a transfer defensive back.
Kendarian Handy-Holly, a 6-foot-2, 250-pound safety, will transfer to Auburn as a walk-on after being granted release from Minnesota this spring in hopes of transferring closer to his home of Jackson, Alabama. According to Benjamin Wolk of SEC Country, Handy-Holly is currently on campus with his family watching the Tigers' 7-on-7 tournament.
The former three-star safety will redshirt the 2018 season, but will have three years of eligibility on The Plains beginning in 2019. As a freshman for the Golden Gophers, Handy-Holly tallied 12 tackles and a forced fumble in seven games. At Jackson High School, Handy-Holly was named first-team All-State by the Alabama Sports Writers Association in 2015 and 2016.
