Auburn's Barbee signs 3 players

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn coach Tony Barbee has signed three players for next season, including two big men.

The signees who sent national letters of intent Wednesday include center Asauhn Dixon-Tatum and forwards Jordon Granger and Shaquille Johnson.

The 6-foot-11 Dixon-Tatum is attending Chattahoochee Tech in Georgia after averaging 4.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and a conference-leading 2.2 blocks per game as a redshirt freshman at Division II Grand Valley State.

The 6-9 Granger led McClure North High School to the Missouri Class 5 State Championship last year while averaging 14.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 3.8 blocks.

The 6-5 Johnson is ranked as the nation's No. 92 prospect by ESPN.com. He averaged nine points and seven rebounds as a junior and won the Under Armour Dunk Contest in California in August.
