Coach Pearl Press Conference

Great news in basketball yesterday, Auburn University Men's Basketball coach Bruce Pearl signed his first class of players. 

4 star guard New Williams out of Santa Monica, CA is 6' 2". Here is what Coach Pearl had to say.
"New Williams is a high major prospect both on and off the court," Pearl said. "He comes from a great family, has a great work ethic and a great foundation. Had he not undergone ACL surgery last spring that kept him out for the summer, he would have been recruited by all the Pac-12 schools."*



One of the nations top small forwards signed in this class is Danjel Purifoy.
"Danjel is a high-energy, athletic, aggressive player who has many facets to his offensive and defensive game. He can play many positions because he can guard many positions. Definitely a system fit,"

In addition, the nations #1 JUCO player decided to stay true to his commitment and signed with Auburn and Coach Pearl yesterday as well. 

T.J. Dunans is a 6' 5" 190 lb specimen. Last season he averaged over 23 points a game. Sporting News tabbed Dunans a preseason JUCO player of the Year.
