Austin Golson will have to wait until next spring to start establishing himself on Auburn’s offensive line. Golson, who transferred from Ole Miss and enrolled at Auburn last month, had hoped to be granted a hardship waiver from the NCAA. Had that occurred, it would have made him eligible to play immediately. But before a speaking engagement at the Greater Athens (Ga.) Auburn Club, offensive line coach J.B. Grimes announced that Golson won’t see the field in 2014. “As of today, Austin will have to redshirt this year,” Grimes said Monday evening. Last season, Golson spent his time exclusively at right guard, seeing action in 12 games. Though he didn’t make any starts in 2013, Golson was set to move into the Rebels’ lineup this fall after shifting to right tackle and exiting the spring at the top of the depth chart. Grimes was pleased that Golson has already flashed an ability to play multiple spots on the line. And it’s not as if Golson is joining the Tigers as an unknown quantity. Grimes began to develop a relationship with Golson shortly after Gus Malzahn was hired as Auburn’s coach in December 2012. But as Grimes pointed out, the four-star prospect from Prattville ended up casting his lot with Ole Miss instead after flipping his commitment from Florida State.
