Auburn football targeting second Ragin’ Cajuns transfer

Is 2022 the year that Auburn football establishes a recruiting pipeline in the great state of Louisiana? It started with flipping the commitment of 4-star CB JaDarian Rhym, who was slated to be an LSU Tiger despite his Georgia roots and continued with the addition of Baton Rouge native Austin Ausberry.

Now, the Tigers are setting their sights on two transfers from the University of Louisiana. Offensive lineman O’Cyrus Torrence, who started 34 games for the Rajun’ Cajuns, made it to the Plains last week for an official visit but is also being heavily pursued by former coach Billy Napier, now at Florida.

In addition to Torrence, another UL transfer has made his way onto head coach Bryan Harsin’s radar. Sophomore wide receiver Kyren Lacy announced on Twitter last week that he would officially be entering the NCAA Transfer Portal:

Lacy becomes the sixth Ragin’ Cajun to enter the transfer portal in the offseason after head coach Billy Napier made the move to Florida. While the Swamp may be an obvious landing spot for the WR, he has publicly announced offers from UCF, LSU, South Alabama, Oklahoma, and Ole Miss.

In 2021, Lacy caught 22 passes for 304 yards and six touchdowns. He will have two years of eligibility left to play once he makes his transfer decision.

With Auburn football losing two of their most productive receivers at the end of 2021 in Demetris Robertson and Kobe Hudson, a seasoned receiver with collegiate playing experience would most definitely boost Eric Kiesau’s position group.

According to Cole Pinkston of Auburn Live, Trovon Reed will be heavily involved with Lacy’s recruitment as he is in Torrence’s, and the Tigers should be in a good position to push for the former Ragin’ Cajuns.
