Auburn, AL (Future150) -- The Auburn Tigers already have three big time prospects in their 2017 class, what will they bring to the table? Who else do they have a chance at landing? 

HARD COMMITS: 

Austin Wiley6'11" Center, Birmingham (AL): Easily one of the best shot blockers in the class, Wiley will bring immediate help on interior defense. You can expect him to collect plenty of points off the offensive glass and contend for freshman of the year in the SEC. Definitely some pro potential with Wiley's game, and there is no gaurantee he stays at Auburn for three or four years. 

Davion Mitchell6'1" Point Guard, Hinesville (GA): One of the most explosive and athletic lead guards in the 2017 class, Mitchell will be able to contribute from day one. His court vision and ability to score from all three levels are just a few of his strengths. He will fit in well with Bruce Pearl's offense, and will be one of the most exciting players in the country to watch when he's on the floor. 

Chuma Okeke6'7" Small Forward, Fairburn (GA): Okeke will join forces with his AAU teammate, Davion Mitchell, at Auburn in a few years. So the chemistry between these two should already be there. He isn't known nationally as much as Wiley or Mitchell but his smooth, versatile style of play will allow him to see the floor plenty during his freshman season. His abilities to slash the lane and finish thorugh contact at 6'7" will serve him very well playing in the tough-nosed SEC. 

OTHER OFFERS: 

Auburn has handed out offers to other top players like Wendell CarterCollin SextonM.J. WalkerHerb JonesJohn PettyRayshaun Hammonds, and Ikey Obiagu among others. As of now there doesn't seem to be any sure fire potential commitments for the Tigers, but you can't doubt the recruiting efforts of this staff after already landing three top-75 prospects to date.
