This is a copy/pasta from a piece by Mark Murphy on AU Undercover.  The neato-keen thing is the way Pearl gets guys of this caliber on campus, and the number of them he gets to sign. But if you read the last paragraph about Thor, that's the trade off in today's environment.  I don't like it, but I'll take it over the decades of abysmal AU basketball we've endured.

*In addition to getting an official visit this week from five-star recruit Brandon Miller , a 6-7, 200 forward from Cane Ridge High in Antioch, Tenn., two more five-star prospects are scheduled for official visits this weekend.

Jarace Walker, a 6-8, 200-pounder at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., is ranked as the No. 1 power forward in the 2022 class and No. 7 overall regardless of position. Walker said that the entire Auburn coaching staff has done a good job staying in touch with him during the recruiting process. Originally from Pennsylvania, Walker has been at IMG Academy dating back to his ninth grade season.

*Zion Cruz, a 6-5, 175 rising senior at The Patrick School in Hillside, New Jersey, is ranked as the No. 18 overall prospect. He is considered one of the best athletes, regardless of position, in the 2022 class. He is rated as the No. 4 combo guard prospect in the country.

*On the subject of five-star prospects, I watched Walker Kessler work out on the Auburn campus this week and the transfer from the University of North Carolina, who is a 7-1, 255-pound center, is an imposing presence on the court with good mobility.

*On the subject of highly-rated big man prospects, we have been told that JT Thor is still planning to go pro this year instead of returning for a second year of college hoops with the Tigers. Although he has plenty of developing to do in all parts of his play, he has a reasonable chance of being selected in the second round of the NBA Draft based on his potential.

Headin' for the south lands
Lookin' for some fun
Down below that dixie mason
I know your the one
My tongue is chasin' my eyes are wide
I can see paradise
I been down here once or twice
But I never seen it look so nice
