Former Minnesota safety Kendarian Handy-Holly will transfer to Auburn


Auburn football-Auburn Tigers-Auburn-Kevin Steele

Minnesota transfer Kendarian Handy-Holly will be a member of Auburn’s football team this fall, the safety confirmed.

The Jackson, Ala., native announced his intention to transfer earlier this spring in hopes of returning closer to home. Minnesota granted Handy-Holly his full release and he decided last week that his next step is to play safety for Auburn. He and his family are on Auburn’s campus Thursday watching the Tigers’ 7-on-7 tournament and spending time with coaches.

Handy-Holly will have four years to play three seasons. He will redshirt during the 2018 season.

Handy-Holly was recruited heavily in high school. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound safety held offers from Florida, Louisville, Mississippi State, Memphis and others, but neither of the big in-state schools offered him.

As a freshman, Handy-Holly played in seven games for the Gophers. He recorded 12 tackles and 1 forced fumble.

The post Former Minnesota safety Kendarian Handy-Holly will transfer to Auburn appeared first on SEC Country.
