Auburn picks up commitment from transfer portal DB Syrus Dumas

Syrus Dumas, a former defensive back for the New Mexico State Aggies, has announced his decision to transfer to Auburn.

Dumas has played the last two seasons with the Aggies after spending the 2020 season at Independence Community College in Kansas.

Over the last two seasons, Dumas has been a difference-maker for the New Mexico State defense. Last season, Dumas recorded 47 tackles, three pass deflections, and two interceptions.

In an interview with Jeffrey Lee of Auburn Live, Dumas gave his thoughts on his decision.

“I’m committed to Auburn,” Dumas said. “I’m locked in. Being from Homewood, this is an Alabama kid’s dream. I had to scratch and claw to get here, so now I have the opportunity to play at Auburn and I’m taking it.”

Dumas comes to Auburn with two seasons of eligibility remaining and will be the eighth defensive back to join the roster this offseason. He will also get the chance to play his former team this season.  Auburn will host New Mexico State on Saturday, Nov. 18, the week before the Iron Bowl.
