After two years at Auburn with only minimal reps, quarterback Malik Willis has decided to try and find more playing time elsewhere. As a result, he is set to leave the Tigers.
According to 247Sports, Willis is entering the NCAA transfer portal. Willis marks the ninth member of the Auburn Tigers to enter the transfer portal this offseason. Six of those players have already found a new team.
Coming out of high school in 2017, Willis was a three-star prospect and the No. 368 prospect in the country, per 247Sports. He was the No. 21 athlete in the country, and the No. 35 prospect from the state of Georgia.
As a sophomore at Auburn, Willis was a backup behind Jarrett Stidham, throwing seven passes and rushing for 88 yards.

In two seasons at Auburn, Willis complete 11 of 14 passes for 69 yards and a touchdown. He added another 28 carries for 221 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
Among the players to have already left Auburn and found new homes are running back Asa Martin, wide receiver Nate Craig-Myers, tight end Jalen Harris, offensive lineman Calvin Ashley, defensive lineman Jauntavius Johnson, and defensive back Cam’Ron Kelly.
Suffice it to say, Willis could very well find one of his former teammates just about anywhere he goes.
