Auburn added a commitment Sunday from a third top-60 player in the 2017 class.

Chuma Okeke, a four-star forward from Atlanta-Westlake, informed Bruce Pearl and the Tigers of his intentions to sign with Auburn in November.

Okeke joins five-star center Austin Wiley of Spain Park and four-star point guard Davion Mitchell of Liberty County, Ga. in Auburn's 2017 class.

Rivals ranks Wiley the No. 15 overall player in the class and Mitchell No. 34. Okeke, who stands 6-foot-7 and weighs 240 pounds, is ranked No. 57.

Wiley and Mitchell combined to give Auburn the No. 1 class entering the weekend. Okeke's commitment should only strengthen the Tigers' standing.

Basketball's early signing period begins Nov. 11.
