John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

Purifoy is a 4* top 50 recruit as a small forward according to 247sports and is a Top 100 prospect according to Rivals. He is 6'6", 190lbs, and comes with some pretty good accolades. basketball recruiting analyst Eric Bossi said the following about Purifoy:

According to the Opelika-Auburn News, Purifoy will play his senior season at Hargrave (Va) Military Academy.

This is a huge pick-up for the Tigers. Coach Pearl's staff is definitely doing work. We've seen a lot of talent arrive on the Plains since he took over as head coach and that is without Coach Pearl being able to so much as speak to a recruit, himself.  We're now just over 24 hours from the expiration of his show-cause penalty, and then we could really have a lot more big basketball news to report on.

It's an exciting time to be an Auburn sports fan. Go get 'em, Coach!
