AUBURN, Ala. - Allen Flanigan turned his tassel and finished his time on the Plains. The small forward has entered his name into the transfer portal, according to multiple reports.
Flanigan moves on as a graduate transfer with one year of eligibility left from the pandemic.
Earlier this year, coach Bruce Pearl said that Flanigan would "weigh all of his options" after earning his degree at Auburn. Many expected Flanigan to not return assuming that he would transfer out or turn pro.
A year ago, Flanigan tested the waters of the NBA draft, declaring his name for the draft yet keeping his eligibility.
During his final year as a Tiger, Flanigan averaged 10.1 points per game along with five rebounds. Flanigan enjoyed a breakout season his sophomore year posting 14.3 ppg behind Sharife Cooper's 20.2.
Flanigan's career was slightly derailed by an injury to his Achilles tendon in the preseason before his junior year. Flanigan came back into the lineup in December, but couldnt find the same form he had in the previous season.
Across his Auburn career, he averaged 8.5 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. Starting as a role player his freshman year, Flanigan blossomed into a NBA-hopeful on the Plains.
It's "likely" that Flanigan will end up at Ole Miss to follow his father, according to ESPN's Jeff Borzello. But, no matter where he lands, Flanigan is a member of the Auburn Family.
