Former Texas OL Darius James transferring to Auburn

Posted May 17th, 2015



Former Texas offensive lineman Darius James has found a new home at Auburn, according to a report from 247 Sports.

James, a prized recruit in 2012, said this month that he had been released from his scholarship at Texas and would transfer.


James started two games last season and played in six before being shut down with a knee injury. He missed all of spring practice recovering from surgery and focusing on academics.

At Auburn, James will likely have to sit out the upcoming season before becoming eligible in 2016.
