Auburn football will once again have a “C Newton” on its roster.

Caylin Newton, the younger brother of Tigers great Cam Newton, committed to AU on Friday as a graduate transfer from Howard. He will have two seasons of immediate eligibility.

Caylin was voted on as the MEAC’s preseason player of the year for 2019. News broke in September that Caylin planned to redshirt and preserve a season of eligibility and later transfer for 2020. He announced he would be entering the NCAA’s transfer portal on Oct. 1, 2019.
