BREAKING: Former Auburn Tiger Scheduled to Visit Alabama Crimson Tide



The rivalry between Auburn and Alabama might intensify further.

A familiar face from Auburn could be staying within the conference.

Following a week packed with action, three guards exited the Auburn basketball roster through the transfer portal. Meanwhile, Dylan Cardwell, the center, has decided to utilize his last year of eligibility at Auburn. Additionally, Bruce Pearl and the Auburn Tigers have welcomed point guard JP Pegues from Furman to their team.


According to Nick Kelly of the Tuscaloosa News, former Auburn point guard Aden Holloway is anticipated to visit in-state rival Alabama.

“Aden Holloway is set to visit the Crimson Tide this week after playing one season for the Tigers, a source told The Tuscaloosa News,” Kelly reported.

As a former 5-star recruit from the 2023 class, Holloway struggled to establish a consistent role during his time with the Auburn Tigers. He and Tre Donaldson, another player who entered the transfer portal, often traded roles throughout the season, with both seeing comparable playing time.

Holloway’s stats for the season included averages of 7.3 points per game, 2.7 assists, and 1.5 rebounds. He shot 31.8% from the field and 30.2% from beyond the arc.

For the upcoming season, Auburn is expected to start JP Pegues at the point guard position, with Denver Jones having some experience in that role as well. Tahaad Pettiford and Jahki Howard, incoming freshmen, are anticipated to contribute as wings in Coach Pearl’s offensive scheme.

The next significant decision regarding Coach Pearl’s roster revolves around big-man Johni Broome. Broome’s presence in a video posted on Auburn’s social media, where he interacted with students about a viral trend, has provided reassurance to many fans that he might stay for the next season.
