4-star forward Babatunde Akingbola commits to Auburn


Quote
Four-star power forward Babatunde Akingbola committed to Auburn on Thursday.

Akingbola is the first commitment of the 2019 recruiting class for Auburn, though there's a possibility he could reclassify to the 2018 class, according to a source, who added that nothing has been decided on just yet.

Akingbola, out of McEachern High in Powder Springs, Ga., is rated as the No. 25 power forward in the 2019 class.

6-foot-8, 220-pounder is the No. 8 player in Georgia and rated as the No. 144 prospect nationally.

Akingbola is the first recruit to commit to Auburn since the FBI investigation involving former associate head coach Chuck Person, who faces six federal charges including fraud and conspiracy following his Sept. 26 arrest. Following Person's arrest, Auburn lost a commitment from four-star 2018 power forward E.J. Montgomery.

What is the likelihood 2019 5-star prospect @lildjj0 plays college basketball in the state of Mississippi? With offers from Kentucky and Kansas (among others) is it really a possibility? We discussed it following the Rumble in the South.

Olive Branch's D.J. Jeffries is a rare basketball talent for the state of Mississippi a five-star prospect ranked as high as No. 9 nationally in the class of 2019, and unquestionably the top player in the state.

The last player of this caliber was Callaway's Malik Newman, who signed with Mississippi State and is now at Kansas.

So when a talent like this comes along, what exactly is it going to take for them to stay home at Ole Miss or Mississippi State, and not leave for a blue blood powerhouse program?

For Jeffries, it's all about family.

"My family is everything to me," Jeffries said. "If the schools build a good relationship with my family, they like them and I like them, that's what I'm going to base my decision off of."

One team that's been building a relationship with Jeffries since his freshman year is Ole Miss.

Andy Kennedy was the first Division I coach to offer Jeffries, and although he isn't commenting on where he'll commit yet, he said that means something to him now.

Jeffries is in constant contact with both Ole Miss and Mississippi State. Both programs check in with the star small forward nearly every day, he said.

When it comes to Kentucky, though, Jeffries, who is 6-foot-7 and 185 pounds, said he feels the family love that he said is so important to him.

John Calipari doesn't check in every day. He doesn't call Jeffries' mom and dad every week. But Jeffries said he makes him feel important to the program when he's on campus and the rare instances he is sending a text or making a phone call.
