Auburn freshman quarterback Kiehl Frazier makes a cut to avoid Arkansas safety Eric Bennett during the Tigers’ game on Saturday against the Razorbacks at Reynolds Razorbacks Stadium in Fayetteville.

— Former Shiloh Christian quarterback Kiehl Frazier will transfer from Auburn, coach Gus Malzahn told AL.com Friday.

The 6-foot-2, 224-pound Frazier was one of the nation's top recruits in the 2011 signing class after starring at Shiloh Christian School in Springdale. He started five games at quarterback as an Auburn sophomore, but was limited to quarterback in Wildcat packages and special teams play during the Tigers' run to the BCS National Championship Game in 2013.

Frazier was moved from quarterback to safety in the preseason and moved to receiver midway through the year. He didn't record any receptions for the Tigers as a junior.

Per NCAA transfer rules, Frazier will have to redshirt the 2014 season if he enrolls at another university that plays in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Frazier would be immediately eligible at a program in a lower classification.

As a senior at Shiloh Christian, Frazier was named the USA Today National Offensive Player of the Year. Frazier amassed 4,039 yards of total offense and 64 touchdowns as a senior, helping the Saints to their third consecutive state championship win in 2010.

Come back home, you traitor, and play for a team in your home state and all will be forgiven.

He's not a traitor, he just realized that there was a lot more football out there beyond state line.

I wish you people would give up on this "traitor" nonsense anyway. Y'all sure don't seem to have problems with kids from other states coming here.

Each player has to decide what is best for him. In-state or out-of-state, it is his decision to make.

You are correct Batt. This guy is the nephew to my brother's wife. They have to go where they can get the playing time and recognition that will give them the best opportunities.

He snubbed Arkansas to go play for a conference opponent. Let him stay in the State of Alabama and play for some Division 3 team where he belongs.
