It may not seem like ground breaking news, but Bruce Pearl’s NCAA-sanctioned “show clause” penalty ended at midnight. At 12:01 a.m., Pearl immediately got to work by contacting Findlay Prep’s Horace Spencer, a 6-8 power forward and Top 100 prospect in the 2015 class. Within hours, Spencer had already committed to be an Auburn Tiger and play for Bruce Pearl.
Four-star commit Horace Spencer joins another 4-star guard in Danjel Purifoy, who also committed to Auburn in the last 3 days. Without any restrictions left to work through, Pearl seems to have things rolling in the right direction at Auburn. Within the next 2-3 years, I think it’s safe to assume that Pearl might have Auburn back into the top echelon of the SEC.
