Kiehl Frazier, who served as the Auburn Tigers’ quarterback last season for the first five games, may certainly be the picture of versatility in college football, as he has switched positions for the second time this season since losing his quarterback job.
Frazier announced before through his twitter account that he is now a wide receiver on the team:
I’m a wide receiver now

This is the second switch this season for the former USA TODAY National Offensive Player of the Year. During the second week of preseason camp back in August, the junior moved to the other side of the ball at safety.
Offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, in speaking to AL.com, said that Frazier will mainly be a slot receiver, but will also see some time back at his old position of quarterback in some specially designed packages. He also expressed what makes him a valuable asset at his new position:
“Kiehl is a big, physical guy,” Lashlee said. “He knows our system. So you can plug him in and in two weeks time, he may not know all the nuances of wide receiver, but he has a good idea of the scheme, because he’s played quarterback in it.”
