Shaw High School coach Terry White tells Inside the Auburn Tigers that Chris Denson, a 6-2 guard, has committed to sign a scholarship to play for the Tigers.
"He will be signing with Auburn in the next day or two," the coach says. "He is a combo guard who will fit well in Coach Barbee's dribble-drive style of offense."

An All-State selection for the Raiders after averaging better than 24 points per game as a senior, he was recruited by Florida, Western Kentucky, North Carolina-Greensboro, UCLA, UNLV, Villanova, Buffalo and Western Kentucky. In addition to Auburn, the guard has offers from Utah State, Western Kentucky, Northeastern, Buffalo and others, White notes.
"He is a very good basketball player," White says. "A lot of college coaches have been looking at him. He is already academically qualified and he is a player who will add size and strength in college and continue to improve.:
Commenting on Denson, White says, "He is a good ball handler and passer and is a really good scorer. Chris is a gym rat who is always working on his game."
