Auburn Basketball Preview Series: Dylan Cardwell

Center Dylan Cardwell has removed his name from the 2022 NBA draft process and is looking to return to Auburn for his junior season. Cardwell came off the bench in his final two seasons behind JT Thor and Walker Kessler and averaged 3.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in the 2021-22 season while adding 1.2 blocks per game.

Cardwell is known for his energy and enthusiasm on and off the pitch. He became a cult hero at Auburn long before he hit the basketball court when he spent time on Saturdays in the fall at Jordan-Hare Stadium, becoming one of the top cheerleaders in football.
