Auburn got some good news in April when former five-star recruit Walker Kessler, a center from the University of North Carolina, announced that he will be playing for the Tigers in 2021.

How big is it? According to ESPN, Kessler is the second-best pickup in the nation during the offseason.

“A former five-star prospect, Kessler really showed flashes of his ability toward the end of the season. He had a four-game stretch in February when he scored in double-figures in each one, and he posted 16 points, 12 boards and eight blocks against Notre Dame in the ACC tournament.”

Ranked behind just Remy Martin, who has yet to announce his destination, Kessler will be the starting center for Auburn when the season begins and gives the Tigers plenty of size with his 7-foot-1, 245-pound frame.
