Bruce Pearl discusses addition of Walker Kessler, how he's fitting in with Auburn
The Auburn Tigers landed a huge commitment this offseason from North Carolina transfer big man Walker Kessler.
Kessler, who grew up near Auburn over the Georgia state line, will fill a big role in the post for Bruce Pearl’s squad this coming season.
On Monday night, Pearl shared his thoughts on Kessler and how he’s transitioning to Auburn. He said the big man is fitting in well with his new squad:

“Walker’s home,” Pearl said of the Georgia native. “It’s an hour from his doorstep to our campus. … He’s really in a good spot.”
Kessler will be counted on in a big way this season. We’ll see if he can put up some solid numbers during the 2021-22 season.
