AUBURN, Ala. -- Justice Wright, a 6-4 post who started 17 games at Clemson during the 2015-16 season, has signed a financial aid agreement and will enroll at Auburn, women's basketball head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy announced Wednesday.

Wright, from Warner Robins, Ga., will sit out the upcoming season per NCAA transfer rules. She will have two years of eligibility remaining starting with the 2017-18 season.

"We are happy to have Justice join our Auburn Family," Williams-Flournoy said. "This year, she will have the luxury of sitting out and really working hard to be one of the best post players in the SEC."

Wright appeared in 18 games for Clemson last season, starting 17. She averaged 4.9 points and 3.3 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game and was a team-leading 47.6 percent from the field. She also had 16 blocks, good for second-best on the team. She had a career-high 13 points and five rebounds in Clemson's game against No. 2 South Carolina in November. She also posted an 11-point game against Buffalo and a career-high seven rebounds against Furman.

As a freshman, Wright appeared in 14 games, scoring 13 points and pulling down 18 rebounds while averaging 6.8 minutes per game.

Wright, the daughter of former NBA player and Clemson great Sharone Wright, was a three-star recruit out of Houston County High School in Warner Robins. As a senior, she averaged 8.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 4.1 blocks.
