Earlier this month, two Auburn Tigers decided to transfer from the Plains. Today, a new player — and a good one at that — is planning to fill one of the open slots left in Tony Barbee’s program.
Former Virginia guard KT Harrell has transferred to Auburn, where he will have to sit out one season before joining the AU team for the 2013-14 season.
Harrell is an Alabama native and was actually a Top 30 player in America (four stars) according to Rivals.com when he came out of high school. He played two seasons with Virginia and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
According to Harrell’s father, Auburn’s style of play was a big factor in his son’s decision to transfer to the school. “The style of play that Tony Barbee wants is exactly what we want, that dribble-drive offense, and it’s going to work out great for everyone.”
Harrell started 15 games for the Cavaliers during the 2010-11 season and played in all 31 contests averaging eight points and two rebounds per game. He played in just 11 games this past season.
