Former Furman guard JP Pegues visits Auburn

The chaos of the transfer portal is starting to get underway in college basketball, with players announcing their exit left and right. K.D. Johnson and Tre Donaldson have both already announced that they are leaving the program, which means Bruce Pearl is in search of another guard.

Luckily for Auburn, the news of two of its guards leaving is attracting some attention from top players, including former Furman point guard JP Pegues. The Paladin star made a visit to the Plains on Tuesday.

The junior had an impressive campaign this season, averaging 18.4 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game during Furman’s 17-16 record in the 2023-24 year. His stats led him to be named to the first-team All-Southern Conference squad.

He already took a visit to South Carolina last weekend before making his trip to Auburn. After a visit that he feels went well, he looks to make one final visit to Florida on April 12 before making a decision.
