Minnesota WR Ralph Spry to Transfer to Auburn
Spry was suspended for violating team rules before their 17-6 win at Purdue. Freshman Brandon Green replaced him in the lineup against Purdue and had five catches for 100 yards. Spry also sat out their next game against Northwestern.
Spry started Minnesota's first seven games but had only seven receptions for 63 yards. He played just one more game the rest of the season and did not catch another pass.
Spry told GoldenSports.Net that he was admitted to Auburn today and will start taking classes next week. He will sit out the 2009 season and have two years of eligibility remaining.
"The first year I will walk-on and they will evaluate giving me a scholarship after that," he said.
Spry enjoyed his time in Minnesota, but thought that he was ready for a change.
"I wanted to be somewhere I could prove myself on the field," he said. "I was starting and we were winning, but I want to show what I am capable of doing."
