Auburn lands transfer outside linebacker Jalen McLeod

Auburn has landed its first transfer of the spring and it comes at a critical position.

App State transfer Jalen McLeod announced his commitment to the Tigers on Tuesday. He will have two seasons of eligibility and will play the Jack linebacker position for Auburn.

A three-year contributor, he played in 30 games for the Mountaineers, making 75 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, 9.0 sacks, and forcing three fumbles.

The 6-foot-1 and 230-pounder shined brightest in App State’s win over Texas A&M last season. He finished with 2.0 sacks and two forced fumbles.

His commitment helps fill out the jack linebacker spot which does not have a scholarship player from last year’s team after Dylan Brooks entered the transfer portal.

He joins Vanderbilt transfer Elijah McAllister and true freshmen Keldric Faulk and Brenton Williams in the room with the Tigers still working to add another transfer from the portal. One target is former JMU edge rusher Isaac Ukwu, who visited this past weekend.
