Louisville, Ky.--Auburn basketball signee Mustapha Heron, a six-foot-five guard, scored 32 points and
was named Most Valuable Player at the Derby Classic All-Star Game on Friday night.
The five-star prospect, who is from Waterbury, Conn., led Sacred Heart High to a third consecutive state championship as a senior.
Another Auburn signee, point guard Jared Harper from Pebblebrook High in Mableton, Ga., scored 14 points.
Herson said he is looking forward to playing at Auburn for Bruce Pearl. “When I was young, my dad said that’s the coach he wanted me to play for. He lets his guards go. He trusts them.”
Harper, a four-star recruit, won the two-on-two tournament at the DerbyClassic and was a finalist in the three-point shooting contest. Last summer he was MVP of the Peach Jam, one of the top AAU events.
Auburn's other signee from the November period is 6-8 forward Anfernee McLemore from Worth County High in Sylvester, Ga.
