Auburn Basketball: Austin Wiley, Danjel Purifoy Out Indefinitely


The Auburn basketball program will be holding Austin Wiley and Danjel Purifoy out of action indefinitely amid allegations brought to light in the FBI’s probe into NCAA corruption and fraud.

“To avoid any potential eligibility issues, Auburn Athletics has decided to hold men’s basketball players Austin Wiley and Danjel Purifoy out indefinitely,” Auburn wrote in a statement.

“Because this is related to an ongoing investigation, we cannot comment further at this time.”

Auburn assistant Chuck Person was arrested by the FBI and faces multiple charges in the probe. The assistant allegedly accepted nearly $100,000 in bribes.

Two unnamed players were referenced in the report, but have yet to be publicly named.

Auburn indicated they knew who the two players referred to in the report were, but also refused to give names. However, with this news, it would be a sensible conclusion to determine Wiley and Purifoy are in question.

There is no word on whether the two players will take the court this season.
