Desi Sills has signed an Athletics Financial Aid Agreement to play basketball next season at Auburn University, head coach Bruce Pearl announced Wednesday. Sills, who played at the University of Arkansas from 2018-21, will join the Tigers for the upcoming 2021-22 season and have two years of eligibility remaining.

"Desi is a proven winner," Pearl said. "He's a fierce competitor and a tough, physical defender. He's got the ability to create for himself as well as others. Playing in our up-tempo system should bring out the best of him. If he plays as well against others as he did against us, we hit the jackpot."

A 6-foot-2, 200-pound guard, Sills averaged 7.5 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game while playing 20.8 minutes per contest while helping Razorbacks to a 25-7 record and an appearance in the Elite Eight.
