Cam Newton's younger brother Caylin has decided to take his talents to Auburn University, where Cam once played. 

The redshirt junior announced his decision via Twitter Friday night with the caption "War Eagle."

Newton, 20, had an incredible season at Howard University in Washington, D.C., in 2018, leading the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in passing with 2,629 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions. 

Four games into the 2019 season, however, he announced his intent to transfer. 

The growing question surrounding Newton is whether or not he'll stay at the quarterback position or switch to wide receiver (or another skill position). He currently stands at 6'0", 196 pounds.

With the help of an early announcement regarding his transfer aspirations back in October, and only four games played, Newton is immediately eligible to play in 2020 and carries two years of eligibility under his belt.
