Auburn bolstered its offensive line with the addition of grad transfer Brandon Council from Akron, who announced his commitment via Twitter on Thursday.
When he signs, Council will be the sixth offensive line signee for the Tigers this year, who are having to replace all starters up front with the exception of rising junior center Nick Brahms. During his time at Akron, Council appeared in 24 games for the Zips. He played in every game during his redshirt junior campaign last season.
The North Carolina, native is “fired up," according to his Twitter, and will be working under first-year offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr.
Auburn will need to fill four spots on the O-line following the departure of starters Jack Driscoll, Marquel Harrell, Mike Horton and Prince Tega Wanogho to graduation last year. Reserve tackle Bailey Sharp was a senior, as well.
The addition of a veteran like Council, who has experience at tackle and guard, will make the competition for a starting spot all the more competitive when football returns.
