Auburn coach Bruce Pearl has landed another Top 100 player in the Class of 2015.

Just days after securing a verbal commitment from wing Danjel Purifoy (ESPN, No. 50), Philadelphia power forward Horace Spencer committed to the Tigers.

Pearl met with the 6-foot-8.5, 210-pound Spencer at 12:01 am on Sunday -- as soon as the coach was allowed to finally talk to recruits.

"It was the perfect situation for me," Spencer said. "They offered me the opportunity to start at the four-spot."

Spencer is ranked 75th in the country in the senior class by ESPN.
