SOURCE: Former Nebraska QB Casey Thompson is interested in Auburn

Per a source, Casey Thompson is looking at Auburn.

On Friday, Nebraska quarterback Casey Thompson entered the transfer portal according to multiple reports.

A source close to the situation believes that there are six schools that Thompson is interested in as his final destination during his college career. The source then added that Auburn is in the top three.

"I know he won't be in the portal long," said the source.

Auburn has been in the market for a quarterback. Thompson's experience, athleticism, and poise he could bring to an offense are all things Hugh Freeze has mentioned that he is looking for in a quarterback.

In 2022, Thompson threw for 2,407 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. His completion percentage was 63.1%.

He will transfer as a graduate and will be able to play right away wherever he decides to go.

The Tigers have now had six players depart from the program within the last couple of weeks, including three backup linebackers:

Wide Receiver Tar'Varish Dawson

Defensive lineman Jeffrey M'ba

Defensive lineman Tobechi Okoli

Linebacker Kameron Brown

Linebacker Desmond Tisdol

Linebacker Powell Gordon

Auburn has pulled in an impressive haul thus far during Hugh Freeze's first season on the Plains, currently sitting at No. 3 nationally in 247Sports' transfer portal class rankings.
