Auburn forward will transfer


Auburn is losing the last recruit of the Tony Barbee era as freshman forward Jack Purchase, a native of Australia, will transfer, a source confirmed to

The 6-foot-8 Purchase didn’t make much of an impact during his only season as a Tiger, as he played 91 total minutes and scored nine points. Purchase shot 21 percent from the field on the season and 13 of his 14 field goal attempts were from 3-point territory. A member of the silver-medal winning U17 Australian FIBA World Championship team, Purchase never found his footing with Auburn and will have a chance to find a better spot to continue his career.

The loss of Purchase now gives Auburn another scholarship to work with in recruiting this summer.
