Auburn Football: Tigers QB TJ Finley's preseason player profile – Auburn Wire

By |
Going into the 2022 football season, Auburn Wire will be looking at each scholarship player listed on the Tigers roster.
Over the preseason, each profile will cover where the player is from, how recruiting websites rated them coming out of high school, and what role they will play for Bryan Harsin this season.
Our focus here will be junior quarterback TJ Finely, who is going into year two with the program. Finley transferred to Auburn following spring football in 2021, leaving his home state LSU Tigers.
Hometown: Ponchatoula, Louisiana
Ht: 6-7
Wt: 250
Three-Star | No. 21 in Louisiana | No. 19 Quarterback
Class in 2021: Sophomore
It will be an intriguing depth chart battle for Bryan Harsin and Eric Kiesau to work through. TJ Finley is the only returning quarterback that has experience playing in Harsin’s system. He appeared in nine games leading the Tigers to a comeback victory over Georgia State. Finley would take over in the final three games after Bo Nix injured his leg. He finished 0-3 in this final three starts and came close to upsetting Alabama in the Iron Bowl.
There is no clear-cut favorite at quarterback this year. Finley has the experience at Auburn and Zach Calzada started 10 games for the Texas A&M Aggies. He led the Aggies to an upset over Alabama and was 6-4 as a starter in 2021. Much like Finley, it was an injury that pushed him into the starting role. Calzada is viewed as the projected starter but there will still be a battle at QB.
Robby Ashford hasn’t played a single game. The former four-star quarterback returns to his home state after two seasons with the Oregon Ducks. He is also in the mix with the top two on the roster. Incoming freshman Holden Geriner and redshirt freshman Dematrius Davis round out the five scholarship quarterbacks on the roster.
