2019 4* PG Tyrell "Turbo" Jones Commits to AU!!!

I’m a really big fan of the kid’s game and think AU is the favorite but I can foresee a scenario where he goes somewhere else for early PT.  AU has the potential to be pretty stacked with upperclassmen guards in 2019. Harper, McCormick, Doughty, and Jamal Johnson could have the 1 and 2 on lockdown that year

That’s just one year. And Turbo is a point man. That would only be stacked one year at most. Also there are rumblings Harper will give serious consideration to turning pro after this season if he has another repeat of last season‘s performance.  Even if Jared does return after this season the 2 PGs for next season will both be SRs. If Turbo comes to AU & develops he will have a big leg up on PT in his 2nd year as a Soph or RS Freshman. Playing time should not be a concern for turbo and Auburn, no more so than any other contenner he is considering. Doughty & Johnson are 2s.

Really odd statement. Where did you get that exact of a time on a commitment?

Don't forget Coach Flanigan. He was on Turbo as early as anyone.

Agreed if his SR year compliments his recent Summer work.

I'll never get used to having these type players commit to AU. It's like a dream world. Bruce is all I hoped he would be and then some.

What a job this Auburn basketball staff has done from a recruiting standpoint. Tyrell "Turbo" Jones is a guy that they really wanted and targeted before any other high majors. They were there first and it paid off for them.

Jones is a fast/quick, tough combo guard. He can really score the ball. Plays with energy on both sides of the ball. Now he has some wild tendencies, but he's going to be a very good player at Auburn.

Really like this class that Bruce Pearl and company have put together, especially considering what they've been through the last year with Chuck, etc.

From a 247 basketball recruiting analyst.
