Ex-Auburn QB Willis transferring to Liberty

Former Auburn quarterback Malik Willis will continue his college football career at Liberty, where he will play for first-year coach Hugh Freeze.

Willis entered his name into the transfer portal last month and has two years of eligibility remaining. He will seek a waiver from the NCAA to be eligible to play right away without having to sit out the 2019 season and said he's already been in contact with an attorney.

"I love Coach Freeze, love his offense and feel like this is the best place for me to showcase my ability to throw the football," said Willis, who backed up Jarrett Stidham the last two seasons at Auburn and attempted just 11 passes.
