Auburn Tigers News: Bruce Pearl Seeks Another Transfer, Auburn Football Offers Chris Davis’ Son

In today’s update on Auburn Tigers News, Auburn basketball head coach Bruce Pearl is on the hunt for another transfer, while Auburn football has extended an offer to the son of Chris Davis.

The Auburn basketball program has been very active in the transfer portal this offseason. With Aden Holloway, Tre Donaldson, and KD Johnson joining the team and the departures of Lior Berman and Jaylin Williams, head coach Bruce Pearl is focused on reloading his roster for the 2024-25 season.

The Tigers will welcome incoming freshmen Tahaad Pettiford and Jahki Howard this fall and have already added two transfers: JP Pegues and Ja’Heim Hudson. According to Pearl, the team is still looking to add one more transfer.

“I think that’s the last piece — one more impactful guard,” said Pearl, per Auburn Rivals. “We really need one more guy who has a chance to compete. It doesn’t matter which position it is, whether it’s a 1/2 or a 2/1, a 2/3, a 3/2 — it doesn’t really matter. But it’ll be one more guard.”
