Auburn lands Mississippi State OT transfer Percy Lewis

Auburn has landed its first offensive line transfer of the offseason and it is a big one. Former Mississippi State offensive tackle Percy Lewis signed with the Tigers Thursday night, he is Auburn’s seventh transfer addition this cycle.

Lewis started the final seven games at left tackle for the Bulldogs during the 2023 season. He rotated in their previous five games and allowed just one sack in his 235 pass-blocking snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.

The 6-foot-8, 345-pounder visited Auburn and Arkansas last week and will have two seasons of eligibility on the Plains. The Sallis, Mississippi, native started his career at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College before transferring to Mississippi State ahead of the 2022 season.

Offensive line coach Jake Thornton and Auburn have been looking to solidify the offensive line by adding an offensive tackle, allowing them to move Dillon Wade inside to guard to help replace departing starters Gunner Britton and Kam Stutts.
