In his four years at Texas, Thompson amassed 176 total tackles, four tackles for loss, five interceptions, three passes defended and a forced fumble.

Jerrin Thompson played high school football at Tufkin (Texas), where he was a four-star prospect. He was the No. 199 overall recruit in the 2020 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

Thompson is the seventh player Auburn has added through the transfer portal. The Tigers currently have the No. 32 transfer class, according to On3’s Transfer Portal Team Rankings.
