Purifoy picks Auburn
On Thursday following an Elite 24 practice session, Danjel Purifoy told Scout.com that Auburn was the leader in his recruitment. Just a day later, Purifoy opted to commit to Auburn during the Elite 24 Dunk Contest. Purifoy took a visit to Auburn during the summer and that trip seemed to have pushed him in this direction. “I had a visit during the summer on their campus,” Purifoy told Scout.com on Thursday prior to his announcement. “It was a great visit. I liked it.” “Coach Pearl, I haven’t gotten to talk to him yet, but the assistants, I’ve talked to all of them,” Purifoy added. “I went to the school and worked out there and I liked it.” A 6-foot-7 wing, played for Winfred Jordan's Atlanta Xpress team this spring and summer. He's a strong, aggressive driver that plays with toughness and has potential as a perimeter defender. Purifoy is currently ranked No. 57 overall and as the No. 11 wing in the 2015 class. He is Auburn's first verbal commitment of the 2015 recruiting class.
