Xavier Henry Chooses Memphis

Posted by Marcus on November 19, 2008

One of the top uncommitted players in the 2009 class has been Xavier Henry (6’6″,SG/SF,2009), but that’s no longer true as Henry has decided to play his college ball at Memphis. The recruiting battle had come down to Kansas and Memphis, with Henry finally deciding to go with the Tigers.

Henry’s brother C.J. already is a freshman on this season’s Memphis team.

Nolan Dennis plays Basketball Recruiter

Posted by Marcus on November 10, 2008

Nolan Dennis (SF, 6’5″, 2009) has only been committed to the Memphis Tiger program a short time, but already he’s trying to help his new team by recruiting top shooting guard Dominic Cheek (SG, 6’6′, 2009). Cheek is a player whose deep shots barely touch the net, and would make a lot of fans in Memphis happy if he decided to play his ball next to the Mississippi River. It’s not uncommon for committed players to try and recruit other players to a school, after all, these guys have known each other for years and develop lasting friendships. Plus, don’t we all want to hang out with our pals as much as possible?

Whether Dennis is successful remains to be seen. Although some might think Dennis is recruiting a player who plays the same position as he does, it’s likely that Dennis would see time at the SF spot while Cheek is a pure deep shooter and would play the off guard.
