"I would like to thank Auburn University for their support and accepting me as a member of the Auburn family," Lang said. "I will have great memories that will last a lifetime, and I have grown a lot as a person. I also want to thank the coaching staff for the opportunity I was given here at Auburn and my teammates for becoming my brothers forever. But, after long consideration, I have decided to transfer and finish my college career elsewhere. Auburn will always have a special place in my heart, and I will forever love the Auburn family. Thank you for a blessed three years! War Eagle!"
Averaging 4.7 points and 1.7 rebounds in his three seasons, Lang's best year came as a sophomore when he averaged 7.1 points per game and made 119 three-pointers.
“I would like to thank TJ for his contributions and helping the basketball program grow in the last three years," Auburn Coach Bruce Pearl said. "He was one of my first recruits at Auburn in helping to turn the program around and move it in the right direction. I wish TJ and his family the best in the future.”
Still short of graduation, Lang will have to sit out the 2017-18 season as a transfer. His departure leaves Auburn with no scholarship seniors at the moment heading into the 2017-2018 season.
