Auburn football's post-spring roster turnover continues.
Defensive tackle Jay Hardy placed his name in the transfer portal on Monday. The news comes four days after outside linebacker Jaren Handy did the same. Both are former four-star recruits.
Hardy was the fourth-highest rated player in the Tigers' 2020 recruiting class, coming in behind only running back Tank Bigsby, defensive lineman Zykeivous Walker and linebacker Wesley Steiner. The Chattanooga, Tennessee, native ranked No. 101 nationally and No. 13 at his position.
But a leg injury slowed the start of Hardy's career and limited him to only one game as a freshman, which came in January's Citrus Bowl. He did not record any statistics.
