Penny is ab$olutely dominating the recruiting trail. Just picked up another 5 star in Precious Achiuwa.

They now have 7 commitments. two 5 stars, five 4 stars. Only 2 of those are outside the top 50 in the country.

Could be brutal next year...great for the conference though. They are going to take over the AAC tourney in Fort Worth

Jank, the mad scientist, is equal to 2 five star recruits. Besides five star recruits draw too much attention and ncaa scrutiny. Thank

For the record, our highest ranked freshman is #304. Our other two didn't crack the top 400.

Ouch.

Amazing what hiring the right coach can do for a program.

They are going to kill the whole conference. I wonder how many of those guys could have even gotten into SMU.

Wonder how much they're getting paid.

http://www.espn.com/college-sports/recr ... it-achiuwa


Hardaway now has the No. 1 class in his first full recruiting cycle as Memphis coach. Achiuwa joins a loaded 2019 group that includes No. 1 overall prospect James Wiseman; five-star forward D.J. Jeffries (No. 25); ESPN 100 four-stars Rejean "Boogie" Ellis (No. 38), Lester Quinones (No. 81) and Malcolm Dandridge (No. 100); and local four-star prospect Damian Baugh.
Memphis also landed Little Rock graduate transfer Rayjon Tucker, who was ranked No. 2 in ESPN's transfer rankings.
The Tigers are now likely out of scholarships for the 2019-20 season, but they had been in the mix for elite guard R.J. Hampton (No. 5) and five-star forward Trendon Watford (No. 19).

I love that the ESPN story mentions his defensive skill before anything else. Memphis seems packed with one and dones now. That still begs the question: can Penny coach? Although not quite the haul that Duke made last year it would seem they have the talent and depth to make a very deep run. It’s great news for the conference. Everybody gotta up their game now.

agree. however, that message fell on deaf ears on the hilltop and we will likely be the cellar dwellers for the next couple of years. how sad to see how far we have fallen.

Rayjon could enter the draft, which would open up another slot.

If they make a great run this year, Penny will continue to get one and dones. If not, then they will be back in AAC norm.
