Auburn Signee Marlon Character Cleared Academically, Will Enroll At End Of Month

Marlon Character, a three-star safety in Auburn's 2016 class, is set to enroll at the school after being cleared academically this week. The Georgia native received the good news on Wednesday night, which we assume prompted these relieved tweets.

Character spoke to 247Sportsabout the situation after it was resolved.

Character appeared all set in the spring, but had a test score flagged, meaning he had to re-take it. In the meantime, he also enrolled in an online course.

"It was either/or," Character said. "So I did both. I got word on my class (Wednesday). I'm good. I'm just relieved."


"I'm ready to put in some work" Character said. "It's time to work 100 percent on college. I don't have to worry about if I'm going to make it."

Character is the No. 18 safety in the 2016 class, per 247's composite rankings.

He will enroll at AU on July 31.
