Auburn basketball is currently hosting one of the most coveted guards in the transfer portal.

Denver Jones, a 6-foot-4 guard from Florida International, is currently taking an official visit to Auburn, per Joe Tipton of On3 Sports.

Jones, a native of New Market, Alabama, averaged 20.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.0 assists this season while shooting 47.8% from the field and 37.1% from three-point range. Prior to playing with FIU, he played for Garden City Community College.

Auburn is currently lacking in guard play and Jones' addition could be a significant improvement in that area. With only one signee so far, Aden Holloway, a four-star point guard and the No. 27 player in the 2023 recruiting class according to 247 Sports, it is expected to be a busy year for Auburn in the transfer portal.

The Tigers are in need of portal production at shooting guard and on the wing. Jones would be an incredibly valuable edition to a roster that has recently suffered from poor to inconsistent guard play from shorter players.
