AUBURN — Auburn coach Jeff Lebo has signed two post players and a pair of guards for the fall signing period.

The Tigers’ fall signing class announced Thursday includes center Robert Chubb and small forward Kenny Gabriel. The guards are Earnest Ross and Andre Malone.

Lebo said the four newcomers will really help the team’s shooting at all four positions. He also said he likes the upside potential for each of them.

Gabriel signed with Auburn last year but spent the season at a Texas junior college, averaging 15 points and eight rebounds in the team’s first eight games.

The other three are prep seniors.
