The quarterback competition at Auburn cleared up some Monday when former starter Kiehl Frazier took himself out of the race.
Frazier asked coach Gus Malzahn if he could move to safety when he was told that junior college transfer Nick Marshall and true freshman Jeremy Johnson would get the majority of reps at quarterback going forward.
As a sophomore in 2012, Frazier started the first five games for the Tigers. He threw for 753 yards with two touchdowns and eight interceptions but lost the starting job midway through the season. He played in all 13 games as a freshman.
The move further indicated that a newcomer will be taking snaps for Auburn when they host Washington State to start the season. Whether that will be Johnson or Marshall is still yet to be determined. Malzahn said Jonathan Wallace is in the mix, too.
