Justin and Painter discuss Auburn basketball’s big-time signing of Morehead State transfer center Johni Broome. They break down his game on both sides of the floor, examine how he fits into the Tigers’ frontcourt and talk about what his arrival will mean for others up front.

The guys then turn their attention to Julian Phillips, the second 5-star former LSU commitment who could be finding his way onto the Plains. They discuss Phillips’ game and consider other options Auburn could target with its final open scholarship spot.

The episode wraps up with a look back at a quiet NFL Draft for Auburn, featuring the lone pick of the Tennessee Titans-bound Roger McCreary. How much did the one-pick weekend matter for Auburn, and what does it mean for Bryan Harsin’s program moving forward?
