Bruce Pearl and Auburn basketball took care of business Wednesday, not only did the Tigers sign five-star point guard Tahaad Pettiford, but they also landed a commitment from four-star small forward Jahki Howard.
He is the No. 76 overall player and the No. 19 small forward in the 247Sports composite ranking. He is also the No. 8 player from Georgia.
Howard is an elite athlete who projects as a three at Auburn but can also slide over to the four due to his size (6-foot-6, 175 pounds). He is already a great finisher but his best basketball is ahead of him as continues to refine his game and improve as a shooter
His commitment gives Auburn the No. 24 class in the country but the average player rating of 98.01 is the 10th best in the country.
