Earlier today, I wrote about the State of the Basketball Program. Tonight, the Auburn Basketball team added a new member to the program.
Devan Cambridge, a 6’6” 215 pound shooting forward from Hillcrest Prep School in Phoenix, Arizona, committed to play for Auburn after receiving an offer from the Tigers over the weekend at the Nike Peach Jam. Rivals has him as a 3-star prospect but Auburn was one of several schools to offer him over the weekend. He was listed as the 49th best shooting forward in the 2019 class. Cambridge is a Georgia native and it’s also worth noting that he played on the same AAU team as 2020 targets Sharife Cooper and BJ Boston.

Cambridge is known for his athleticism and 3-point shooting. He will certainly bring even more depth to an Auburn team that is now comprised of 5 seniors, 2 sophomores and 6 freshmen. Having watched some of the tape on this guy, I can’t help but think he reminds me a bit of Malik Dunbar. One things for sure: this Auburn team will be extremely athletic this year with the addition of Cambridge, Isaac Okoro and the remaining freshmen class. Cambridge chose Auburn over West Virginia, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and others. Welcome to Auburn Devan and War Eagle!
