New Auburn Head Basketball Coach Tony Barbee has made his first offical move as Tigers Head Coach by releasing Jalen Steele from his scholarship.

Jalen Steele, a guard from Fulton High School in Knoxville, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel Steele was named Mr. Basketball for Class AA in Tennessee after averaging 24 points per game his senior year.

Auburn originally beat out Marshall and Western Kentucky for Steele's services, but, after a big senior season, more SEC schools have called, including Alabama, Florida and Georgia, as well as UCLA and Cincinnati.
