Auburn pulled in a potential impact transfer on Sunday as former VCU guard Samir Doughty pledged to the Tigers with an announcement on Twitter.

The 6-foot-4 Doughty just completed his first season with the Rams after redshirting the previous season as he put up 9.0 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. With head coach Will Wade changing jobs and heading to LSU, Doughty opted for a fresh start of his own by also moving to the SEC.

Doughty will have to sit out a transfer season before joining the Tigers, but he has a chance to be a steady perimeter rotation player.
