Auburn redshirt sophomore OG Avery Young will return to school.
"As of now, I'm coming back," Young said. "I only sent my papers in to evaluate myself, to see where I'm at, see what other people said, my coaches, other coaches, to see how much work I need to put in." Tigers coach Gus Malzahn must be pretty happy today, as D'haquille Williams also decided to return for his senior year. The 6-foot-6, 322-pound Young might move from left guard to right guard next year to make room for Alex Kozan, the former LG who missed 2014 due to injury. "I'm at left guard, I'll probably be at left guard the rest of my life," Young said. "That interior's real, it's a whole different life, but anywhere they put me, I'm going to give my all."

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn confirmed the school will file for feedback from the NFL Draft Advisory Board on behalf of redshirt sophomore OT Avery Young.

"He's a huge athlete," center Reese Dismukes said. "He's got very good feet and he's really come along this year. He's moved around and really accepted that responsibility very well. That's not easy -- to be here one week and then here the next week." Young, a third-year sophomore, has experience at both guard and tackle. Young (6-foot-6, 309 pounds) is the brother of Bears DE Willie Young, and Panthers LB Thomas Davis is his cousin. "I've got a year of tackle up under my belt, and we made it to the championship game, so I've got everything I could do from that position," Young said earlier this season. "I feel playing guard will just open up the window even more."

Auburn starting freshman T Avery Young will miss the remainder of the 2012 season with an undisclosed injury.

Young started the first three games of the season but has missed time since. Head coach Gene Chizik would not give details on the injury, but this news certainly doesn't help the Tigers moving forward.

Auburn starting freshman RT Avery Young already feels at home and comfortable after dealing with some nerves earlier on.

Auburn is starting two freshman tackles, but Young is the only true freshman starter in the Tigers' offensive lineup. Throughout the offseason, Young's quickness and agility to mirror set him apart from the competition, but he is still growing into his frame. "I think practice is sometimes a lot faster than the game," Young said. "I know I've got the ability to hold up against a lot of guys in this league."
