Bruce Pearl's show-cause penalty ended at midnight Saturday -- and Horace Spencer was in his office shortly after.

About 12 hours later, that late-night meeting paid off.

Spencer has committed to Auburn, sources told

Ranked No. 57 in the 247Sports Composite, the 6-foot-8 Spencer is a terrific athlete up front and has a very good motor. He does most of his damage on the glass and in transition, so there's plenty of room for improvement on the offensive end.

Spencer is at Findlay Prep (Nev.) now, but Auburn made inroads with the Philadelphia native because of former La Salle assistant Harris Adler, who is now on the Tigers' staff.

Spencer is Auburn's second commitment of the weekend, joining four-star forward Danjel Purifoy, who pledged to the Tigers on Friday night.
