He will enter the transfer portal. The junior made his intentions clear on Sunday night on his Instagram page.

“This decision has been the toughest I have ever made,” he said in an Instagram video. “I have made so many decisions for Auburn, and now it’s time to do what’s best for me. It’s time that I move on to the next chapter in my life. To reach further goals, I’ve decided it’s best to be a grad transfer and find a new start somewhere else. I made this decision with a heavy heart and a lot of growing pain.”

When he was healthy, Nix was the Tigers’ starting quarterback. He made 34 starts with the team.

This past season, he appeared in 10 games. He went 197 of 323 for 2,294 yards. He had 11 touchdown passes and three interceptions.

In three seasons, he has gone 628 of 1,057 for 7,251 yards. He has thrown 39 touchdown passes and 16 interceptions.

With his intentions known that he will be transferring, it is unlikely he’ll play one more game for the team. Either Oscar Chapman or TJ Finley will start the Tigers Bowl game on Tuesday, December 28th in the TicketSmarter Birmingham Bowl against No. 20 Houston Cougars.

“I have loved Auburn from the moment I knew Auburn,” he said. “All I ever wanted to do was in a championship for Auburn. I can truthfully say that I’ve given everything that I have for that goal, and I have played in so many amazing games because of it. Auburn has allowed me to fulfill my lifelong dream of playing in Jordan-Hare and wearing the AU on my helmet. It has allowed me to compete in the SEC and be a part of some historical atmospheres.”
