Shawn Kemp Jr. among five Auburn hoops signees

Hey everyone. This is a quick note to let you know that Shawn Kemp Jr., the oldest son of former NBA star Shawn Kemp, signed a Letter of Intent with the Tigers today.

We know this because our friends at AuburnSports.com, ITAT and AuburnUndercover.com say so.

He's a legit prospect, a 6-foot-9 power forward or center who will bring grit to Auburn's frontcourt. He committed to Alabama last year, but failed to qualify and currently plays at Hargrave (Va.) Military Academy.

Auburn also signed these guys:
PG Anthony Salter, 5-11 (from junior college)
PF Adrian Forbes, 6-8 (from junior college)
PF Heath Houston, 6-7 (from a Georgia high school)
SG Jalen Steele, 6-2 (from a Tennessee high school)

PF - you had me there, especially since I was thinking that very thought before I got to your post. I was thinking WHAT? WHO?

Auburn's last legit center?
I have no idea. How about Matt what's his name who played as a freshman then left for GA Tech.

It's a mystery, THT. Every year that it remains a mystery is one step closer to Lebo's departure.

Kyle Davis was a shot blocking machine who played center for us.

Hmmm, I assume we are talking basketball because there was no football news. I guess it had to happen, but I am against it.

Or maybe that was because football stunk so much last year and I was grasping for anything to help?!
