Linebacker Landrum Leaving Auburn

Unable to make a move up the depth chart this spring, linebacker Chris Landrum has decided to transfer from Auburn.

Auburn, Ala.--Unable to make a move up the depth chart this spring after returning to linebacker from fullback, Auburn sophomore Chris Landrum has decided to leave the program in pursuit of playing time elsewhere, a university spokesman confirmed.

Expected to transfer to Jacksonville State along with former Auburn scholarship linebacker Harris Gaston, who was a walk-on this spring for the Tigers, the 6-3, 242 Landrum will be eligible to play immediately for the Gamecocks.

A three-star prospect out of Sweetwater High School, Landrum was injured as a senior and missed 10 games. He returned to lead his team to a state title and earned MVP honors after scoring a rushing touchdown and adding nine tackles on defense.

Playing linebacker while redshirting in 2011, Landrum moved to fullback last season with Auburn looking for more help at the position in a new offense. He played in just one game for the Tigers.
