Running back Ladarious Phillips arrived on Auburn’s campus at a whopping 291 pounds in 2010. He was expected to drop some of that excess weight, but that didn’t happen. And now AU’s dropping him.
Phillips — who was expected to be a fullback for the Tigers this fall — is walking away. “He will not be on our football team and we’re going to with him well,” Gene Chizik said yesterday. “He’s decided he’s not going to play.” At Auburn, that is. He’s been granted a full release to transfer to any school of his choice.
Jay Prosch — an All-America transfer from Illinois — is slated to be Auburn’s starting fullback in Scot Loeffler’s new offense.
