Caylin Newton is going to follow in the footsteps of his brother and play football at Auburn after all.
Newton, whose older brother Cam won the Heisman Trophy and led Auburn to a national championship in 2010, announced Friday that he’ll be heading to The Plains as a graduate transfer.
The 6-foot quarterback made his decision public on Twitter.
Newton, who will be eligible to play immediately, enters a program with an entrenched starter already at the position. Bo Nix, the son of Auburn great Pat Nix, started every game for the Tigers last season and was named SEC Freshman of the Year.
