Key Ramsey, father of offensive lineman Chaz Ramsey, confirmed Monday that Auburn granted his son a release.
The release stipulates that Chaz Ramsey cannot communicate with nine SEC schools. The two exceptions are Ole Miss and Mississippi State – the two in-state schools for the Madison, Miss. native.
Ramsey has not played this season after he underwent offseason back surgery nor has he worked out with the team.
As a true freshman last season, Ramsey started (EDIT:) nine games and was named to the SEC All-Freshman team.
Key Ramsey said Chaz Ramsey’s rehabilitation has gone well and he thinks there’s a good chance he could practice during the spring, adding he expects his son’s career to continue.
Key Ramsey declined further comment on the situation.
Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville has maintained for the last month that Chaz Ramsey is still enrolled in Auburn, which he is, and said there was a chance Ramsey would later transfer.
