Top-five recruit Jabari Smith announced his commitment to Auburn.

Smith, who chose the Tigers over Tennessee, Georgia, LSU, Georgia Tech and North Carolina, is the highest ranked Auburn recruit since at least 2007.

Smith had also discussed joining the G League.

"It is close to home, maybe an hour and 30 minutes away from my house. Not far at all. Their style of play is free and fast. Auburn is known for their defense. Playing for Coach Pearl will help me become a stronger two-way player," said Smith.

Smith is ranked No. 5 in ESPN's class of 2021.
