Nile To Sign With Memphis

The Memphis Tigers appear poised to have a big man come to campus in the future but it's not clear how he'll get there. Several recruiting websites, including and noted recruiting guru Dave Telep are reporting Ridgeway High star Pierre Niles says he'll sign a letter of intent with the Tigers in November AFTER transferring to a prep school in Florida.

Ridgeway principal Michael Kyle says Niles was not in school today, but has not notified the school that he is transferring.

The 6'9" 260 pound forward is a consensus top 100 player nationally. He led Ridgeway to the State Championship last year.
