AUBURN — An Auburn cornerback room searching to replace first-team All-American Roger McCreary added another weapon.
D.J. James is transferring to the Tigers from Oregon, where he had 46 tackles and two interceptions in his 2021 junior season.
"I’ma win and I got Ties Now, Ian Sparing No ! I’m Home #WDE," James wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

The 6-foot, 185-pound James is from Mobile, where he went to Spanish Fort High School. He joins Jaylin Simpson and Nehemiah Pritchett at cornerback for the Tigers, who also have a healthy recruiting class in the secondary.
Four-star cornerbacks Austin Ausberry and JaDarian Rhym are signed with Auburn, as well as No. 1 juco cornerback prospect Keionte Scott. In replacing McCreary, it's unclear whether Auburn will turn to two of its newcomers to start or have Simpson and Pritchett still at the front of the group.
Auburn also added an Oregon defensive lineman, Jayson Jones, to its 2022 roster out of the transfer portal. Meanwhile, three-year Tigers starting quarterback Bo Nix will play for the Ducks in 2022.
