Former Minnesota safety Kendarian Handy-Holly will transfer to Auburn


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

The Jackson, Ala., native announced his intention to transfer earlier this spring in hopes of returning closer to home. Minnesota granted Handy-Holly full release, and he decided last week 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. He will redshirt during the 2018 season.

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

As a true freshman, Handy-Holly played in 7 games for the Gophers. He recorded 12 tackles and 1 forced fumble.
