Bruce Pearl continued to round out his team for the future with the commitment of Allen Flanigan, who’s the son of current Auburn assistant coach Wes Flanigan.
He’ll transition to playing for his father after high school, whereas he’s currently playing for his grandfather at Parkview High in Little Rock, Arkansas. He’s the top-rated recruit out of the state right now, and 30th best forward in the country for the 2019 class.
Flanigan will obviously be familiar with Auburn and Bruce Pearl now that his father is on staff on the Plains, but he gave this message on Twitter after his commitment.
With the commitment, the Tigers grabbed their third commitment for the 2019 class after Babatunde Akingbola and Isaac Okoro (both of Powder Springs, GA) have announced their intent to sign with Auburn. All three of those players are slated to fit into the frontcourt once they reach the Plains, which is good news with Horace Spencer’s (and likely Austin Wiley’s) departure after this season.
For a small taste of Flanigan’s talents, check this video from a recent AAU tournament:
