Brandon Marcello of AL.comn hopes of receiving more playing time. They should be able to play right away.
Seeing the field wasn't something either was too familiar with at Auburn. Gaston hasn't played since the 2010 season. Meanwhile, Landrum was a backup fullback last year before switching to linebacker this spring.
Do these transfers hurt Auburn?
Bryan Matthews of 247Sports caught up with Landrum's mother, who indicated this move was strictly a football decision.
“He was happy at Auburn, but he wanted to make a football career change,” said Landrum’s mother, Jackie Landrum.
Due to their lack of contribution, these moves shouldn't make or break the upcoming season for Gus Malzahn and his staff.
Landrum was buried on the depth chart behind solid depth with guys such as Kris Frost, Jake Holland and LaDarius Owens. Meanwhile, Gaston was facing another season of riding the bench for the most part after returning this spring as a walk-on.
