Auburn basketball: Is JT Thor next?

About one year ago, Auburn’s Chuma Okeke (a once borderline top 50 recruit) was drafted with the No. 16 pick in the first round of the 2019 NBA Draft after playing two seasons at Auburn. This year, many expect Auburn freshman Isaac Okoro (a once borderline top 40 recruit) to be a lottery pick and become Auburn’s first one-and-done.

Bruce Pearl mentioned that on an interview he did with Marching to Madness’ Blake Lovell and Ken Cross, saying the success stories Auburn has had with Okoro and Okeke are the kind of things he and his staff are really proud of.
