Lithuanian PF Benas Griciunas picks Auburn

Auburn head coach Tony Barbee landed a verbal commitment Monday from Findlay College Prep power forward Benas Griciunas (Lithuania), according to www.al.com.

The 6-foot-11 Gricunas held interest from Georgia Tech, St. Mary's and Washington State. His commitment follows center Ronald Delph (Winter Haven, Fla./IMG Academy), who pledged to the Tigers on Sunday. Point guard Tahj Shamsid-Deen (Decatur, Ga./Columbia) is also expected to sign his letter of intent this week.
