Auburn Basketball Picks Up Two 4-Stars

Written by Cole Locascio

Just days after Auburn picked up their first 4-star of the week, SF Danjel Purifoy, and mere hours after Bruce Pearl's NCAA show-cause probation was lifted, the Tigers have picked up their second 4-star of the week in PF Horace Spencer.

The 6-foot-8, 215 pound star out of Findlay Prep in Henderson (NV) is #56 overall according to 247sports.com's composite rankings. As of Sunday morning, Auburn was not the favorite to win Spencer's commitment -- that honor went to UNLV. However, Spencer unofficially visited the Plains this weekend, and decided that Auburn was the place for him. 

Danjel Purifoy, a 6-foot-6, 190 pound small-forward from Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia committed to the Tigers on Friday during the Under Armour Slam Dunk Competition. According to the composite rankings on 247sports.com, Purifoy is the 49th ranked player overall (9th ranked SF), and holds a rating of 96.
