Rivals.com basketball recruiting analyst Eric Bossi said the following about Purifoy:
Would say Danjel Purifoy is more powerful and nasty than he is explosively athletic. Certainly a good athlete, though. Like him as a combo— Eric Bossi (@ebosshoops) August 22, 2014
Purifoy will fight for boards. Defends well and always plays hard. Transition performer who can play four if you want to go w/small lineup— Eric Bossi (@ebosshoops) August 22, 2014
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!
