The dual-threat sophomore QB didn't receive much playing time in 2011, but he was widely expected to receive the brunt of the snaps in 2012.

Just a few days ago, Zeke Pike was a quarterback at Auburn. Now, Pike is reportedly heading to Louisville ... as a tight end. This is not a drill.
Informed sources tell AuburnUndercover.com that former Auburn quarterback Zeke Pike will transfer to Louisville. Although Louisville's players have reported, Pike is not expected on campus until next week.
Pike will not play quarterback for the Cardinals. Instead, he will line up at tight end.
That's the joke. That's all there is to it.
Pike was arrested for public intoxication after enrolling and arriving on campus in January. He reportedly had a somewhat sketchy past in high school and the quick arrest for getting drunk in public led Coach Gene Chizik to send him home before ultimately dismissing him.
And somehow that dismissal led to Pike being banished to Louisville as a tight end. The world works in mysterious ways, but here we are. One more slip-up and Pike will be an offensive lineman at Memphis. And that's about as low as things can get.
While we’re here, let’s watch some of the many fine college football videos from SB Nation’s YouTube channel:

Hoover, Ala. -- Clad in pinstripe and escorted by the largest entourage of any coach thus far, Gene Chizik began his Media Days remarks with thanks for the support his school has received in the wake of this summer's Auburn shooting tragedy. After that, it was praise for Tigers new and old and a warning that the SEC's Big 12 imports might be tougher than anybody thought.
What to expect from new offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler, who's replacing mad genius Gus Malzahn? Not everything will change entirely, says Chizik, though you'd be wise to expect a whole lot more fullbackery and time-killing. Loeffler's quarterback coaching history will help with recruiting the position, the coach feels, with Kiehl Frazier and Clint Moseley still "in the mix" for the starting job this year, to be decided in two-a-days. SEC vet Brian VanGorder takes over the other side, and Chizik cites his lengthy relationship with the former Georgia and Falcons DC.
Looking down on Missouri and Texas A&M, cocky SEC fan? Gene Chizik brings troubling news back from the Big 12: "These are dang good teams with good coaches." He spent quite a while toward the middle defending the SEC's latest acquisitions, which his Iowa State team went 0-3 against while giving up almost 50 points per game:
Gene Chizik going rogue, telling us that Texas A&M and Missouri don't get enough credit. Someone in here may shout him down.
There's also that ever-budding rivalry with Clemson in the Georgia Dome to open the season. Chizik paid compliments to every portion of the Tigers program, especially new defensive coordinator and former Big 12-mate Brent Venables.

With Clint Moseley limited due to a bum shoulder, Kiehl Frazier took advantage of a starting opportunity at the 2012 Auburn Spring A-Day Game. Frazier looked solid playing under new offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler, going 7-for-9 passing for 92 yards in the first half.
Early-enrolled true freshman Zeke Pike was the second quarterback in the game, though he didn't do anything to thrust himself into the starting discussion. Using a modified scoring system, the offense defeated the defense 36-27 on the day. Transfer running backs Mike Blakely and Corey Grant scored the game's only two touchdowns. Blakely led all rushers with 65 yards on just seven carries.
Auburn also used the day to honor three legends. Statues of the program's three Heisman Trophy winners -- Pat Sullivan, Bo Jackson and Cam Newton -- were revealed in a ceremony on the east side of Jordan Hare Stadium.
