Bruce Pearl just snagged the No. 1 player in the state of Kentucky.
Justin Powell, a four-star shooting guard out of North Oldham HS, has committed to the Auburn Tigers.
He made the announcement on his Twitter page this afternoon:

Powell visited Kentucky unofficially back in February when the Wildcats hosted Tennessee, and the UK coaching staff has been in loose contact with the 6-6-foot-5 shooting guard since. Kentucky never offered Powell a scholarship.
The Louisville native chose Auburn over offers from Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Xavier, Georgia, and Vanderbilt, among others.
