Northwestern Graduate Transfer Eku Leota is Officially an Auburn Tiger

Tigers add a much needed pass rusher.

NCAA Football: Northwestern at Purdue Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The very first commit of the Bryan Harsin era, Northwestern graduate transfer Andrew “Eku” Leota, is officially headed to the Plains.

Leota was a pass rush specialist for the Wildcats the last two years recording 6.5 sacks and 10 TFL. He won’t arrive in Auburn until the summer but he should have a very good chance of cracking the rotation in 2021 at the STUD position. This is a very important pickup for the Tigers as they look to improve their lackluster pass rush next season.

War Eagle Eku!
