Bruce Pearl Lands Number 1 Recruit

Bruce Pearl Auburn recruiting

Bruce Pearl is wasting no time in trying to build his new Auburn program. News broke yesterday that Pearl landed the number one JUCO prospect in the nation, Cinmeon Bowers:

Junior college power forward Cinmeon Bowers announced his commitment to Auburn via Twitter on Sunday. Bowers, a 6-foot-7, 261-pound star from Milwaukee, is rated the nation’s No. 1 junior college basketball prospect by multiple major recruiting services.

This isn’t as quick as it may seem. Coaches who are not heading up a program still work the recruiting circuit so they know who they want to get as soon as they sign on with a program. But Pearl is also showing he doesn’t want to wait to show results, which is a reality of today’s modern coaching era. Auburn didn’t bring in Bruce Pearl so their team could languish in the NIT for years.
