While Auburn will have at least one player in the game, there is the potential the Tigers have 1 or 2 more players in this game as well, with both Jalen Green and Greg Brown still undecided on their college destination. Both still have Auburn on their short lists of schools they are considering.
Auburn is 1 of 3 SEC schools, joining Kentucky and Tennessee, with players on this year’s roster.
Congratulations to Sharife and all of the players who were selected!
