Is Bo Nix leaving Auburn? Where is the Quarterback going? Here’s what you need to know about him.
Bo Chapman Nix is an American football quarterback for the Auburn Tigers.
As a true freshman, Nix was named the starting quarterback for Auburn’s 2019 season opener against Oregon. Nix led Auburn to a 27-21 come-from-behind win against the Oregon Ducks at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on August 31, 2019.
Likewise, Nix led Auburn to a 9-4 record in his freshman season, winning the Iron Bowl, 48-45, over Alabama. He was voted the SEC’s 2019 Freshman of the Year.
Is Bo Nix Leaving Auburn? Where Is He Going?
As of now, there is no formal announcement about Bo Nix’s leaving from Auburn. He is said to have struggled in each of Auburn’s fall scrimmages and might be lagging in camp.
Nix, who was on course for a career year before injuring his ankle during his best passing performance of his career against Mississippi State on November 13th, is returning to the squad he was intended to lead.
The news was first reported on Twitter by the E2C Network:

Nix, who has two years left on his Tigers contract, may use his additional year of eligibility due to the COVID-19 epidemic. He’ll almost certainly be hoping to make the NFL after his next go-round, and the new offensive coordinator should keep that in mind when he joins the team.
Auburn will need to maintain this pace continuing in the transfer portal and in filling up the Class of 2022 and Class of 2023 in the coming months.
Further, if Auburn believes Bo Nix is on the verge of leaving, they could consider calling a quarterback like Johnson.
