Tigers After Top Hoop Recruit of 2012

20-12 may seem like a long time from now, but NOT in the Wild, Wild World of College Basketball Recruiting.

And, Definitely NOT for University of Memphis Head Coach Josh Pastner.

As a matter of fact, a Who's Who of College Coaches attended the Workout Monday night of Wichita, Kansas High School Forward Perry Ellis..

Names like Former Tiger Boss John Calipari, who's looking for talent at Kentucky after HIS top class left for the NBA..

There's Bill Self of Kansas, Frank Martin of K-State..

Johnny Dawkins of Stanford, and a host of assistants, including the Tigers Own Glenn Cyprien, along with others from Louisville, Texas A&M and Missouri.

ESPN Hoop Analyst Pat Forde Reports the Tigers are hot on the trail of Perry Ellis..

Yes, he DOES have a Designer Name...and he's got the Designer Game to go with it..

The The 6'9" Forward from Wichita averaged more than 19-points and almost 12 Rebounds a game as a Freshman..

Last season he led Wichita Heights High School to a 24-and-1 record and the Kansas Class-6-A- State Championship pulling down 20 rebounds in the title game.

Rivals.com lists him as a 5 star recruit..

He's currently playing on the United States U-16 National Team.

Memphis has a Recruiting -IN- with Ellis in that his Sister, Savannah starts at Center on the Tiger Women's team.

Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma, and Stanford are among the teams who've already offered Ellis a scholarship.
