Lang discusses Auburn commitment
T.J. Lang has settled on his college destination. The Mobile (Ala.) McGill-Toolen standout informed Scout.com that he would continue his basketball career at Auburn. "I decided to go with Auburn because when I went up on the visit it just felt like it was the best place for me basketball wise and school wise," Lang said. "The coaching staff is really experienced," Lang continued. "Coach Pearl has a proven track record of coming in and winning off the bat with Tennessee going to the NCAA tournament six years." Lang said he also considered Jacksonville, Mississippi State, California, TCU and Tulsa. Lang said he liked the new excitement around the Auburn program. "The atmosphere around Auburn with basketball has changed drastically," Lang said. "The people there, when I was walking around during summer school, most of everyone knew who I was and knew I was on a visit." "It just seemed like a family type atmosphere," he added. "Also school wise they really do the best to get you to exceed. I'm going to be a business major." Lang, a three-star wing prospect, said he also saw opportunity at Auburn to play early in his career. "My main thing was going somewhere where I had an opportunity to play," he said. "I spoke to coach [Chuck] Person and coach Tony Jones. They watched film and film and film and they felt like I had an opportunity to not only play, but to start as well. That was a really big factor in my decision." Lang gives Auburn four commitments for their 2014 class. He joins Sam Logwood, Jack Purchase and Junior College standout Cinmeon Bowers to make up their class. Lang originally committed and signed with Virginia Tech, but got out of his Letter of Intent following their coaching change.
