Lucas Hargrove, who plays for Northeast Richland High School, averaged 13.1 points and seven rebounds per game as a junior.
"He is scheduled to be in Auburn this weekend and then he is expected to make his choice after that," says Jason Powell, who is the head coach at Northeast Richland.
"He is a versatile player who plays inside for us, but in college he will probably a swingman (guard/forward) who may even be a point guard," Powell says. "Lucas handles the ball well."
Despite not getting attention from other SEC programs, Powell says he believes that Hargrove has the potential to play at that level in college. "He can do that, but he has several things he needs to work on," the coach notes. "He needs to put on some weight. He weighs about 185 now.
"He also needs to improve on the consistency of his outside jump shot. He is not bad at that, but he needs to be more consistent."
Hargrove started for a 22-4 team that reached the quarter-finals of the state playoffs as a junior. As a sophomore, he was his team's sixth man.
Auburn coach Jeff Lebo has one verbal commitment for the November signing period from 6-4 guard Kelvin Lewis from North Crowley High in Forth Worth, Tex.
