Auburn linebacker Cameron Toney is set to leave the program as a graduate transfer once he completes his degree this spring. Toney, a redshirt junior, plans to transfer to another school to complete his college football career in 2017, WAFF reported Thursday.

Toney played sparingly with Auburn, redshirting in 2013, finishing his Tigers career with seven total tackles.

Toney came to Auburn in 2013 as a three-star recruit from Huntsville (Ala.) High, committing to the school nearly a year before signing day. At the time, he was considered the No. 15 prospect in Alabama.

Though Toney saw only sporadic playing time with the Tigers, the exit of the 6-foot-1, 244-pound linebacker reduces the reserve and special teams options available. Auburn currently lists 17 linebackers on its roster, including seven freshmen.
