AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn coach Bruce Pearl has signed a five-member recruiting class to build on a Southeastern Conference championship season.

The class announced Monday includes prospects Babatunde Akingbola, Allen Flanigan, Tyrell Jones, Isaac Okoro and Jaylin Williams.

The class was ranked No. 10 nationally by 247Sports and 11th by ESPN.

Okoro, a 6-foot-6 forward from Powder Springs, Georgia, is a consensus Top 50 player. The other four are also rated as four-star recruits.

Akingbola is a 6-8 center and high school teammate of Okoro.

Flanigan is the son of former Auburn guard and current assistant coach Wes Flanigan. Jones is a guard and Williams a forward.

The eighth-ranked Tigers won 26 games last season and a share of the SEC regular-season title.
