In one week, Auburn basketball has lost two of its three commitments in the 2024 class. After Peyton Marshall decommitted last week, Alabama Mr. Basketball Labaron Philon has followed suit, announcing his decision in a post on his Instagram.

“First off, I would like to thank Bruce Pearl, his staff and fans for recruiting me along this journey," Philon said in his post. “After news of changes in the program and staff, me and my family have to think about my future. With that being said, I would like to re-open my recruitment. Truly and extremely blessed to be recruited by the Auburn family! Can’t thank you guys enough."

Philon scored 34.7 points per game in his junior season at Baker High School and is the No. 1 player in Alabama in the 2024 class. It's safe to say that the departure of Wes Flanigan for Ole Miss is having an impact, with Philon and Marshall both citing staff changes as a reason for decommitting.

"After news of recent coaching staff changes within the program and recent talks with the ones closest to me, it is within my best interest to re-open my recruitment. I truly appreciate the support the fans and basketball community have given me. I will be decommitting from Auburn University," Marshall said in a statement to Joe Tipton of On3Sports.

With Marshall and Philon gone, Tahaad Pettiford is now the only commit in Auburn's 2024 recruiting class.
