New Tiger basketball Coach Tubby Smith gets his first recruit as Coppin State guard Christian Kessee commits to the University of Memphis.
Kessee announced his decision on Twitter.
A graduate transfer, Kessee is immediately eligible to play this coming season.
He averaged a team leading 14.6 points per game last season at Coppin State.
Kessee lead the MEAC in 3-pointers made with 88.
Kessee, who is expected to provide much needed perimeter scoring, visited Old Dominion. Tulane, and Nevada, before choosing Memphis.
