Auburn among programs interested in Towson guard Nicholas Timberlake

Auburn basketball is looking to boost its backcourt for next season and could dip into the transfer portal to do so.

According to Joe Tipton of On3, Auburn is among 30+ programs that have reached out to Towson guard Nicolas Timberlake about the possibility of joining the roster next season.

In four seasons at Towson, Timberlake has posted an average of 12.5 points and 3.9 rebounds per game. In 2022-23, he averaged 17.7 points per game while connecting on 45% of his shots, and had a free throw percentage of 84.5%.

Will Auburn have room for Timberlake? Auburn will graduate four guards from this season’s team, including Allen Flanigan and Zep Jasper. Wendell Green Jr., Tre Donaldson, K.D. Johnson, and Chance Westry are set to return, with Aden Holloway set to come in as a freshman. Adding a guard with experience could go a long way in building depth at the position.
