The 5: Former Tiger Austin Nichols talks Penny, recruiting stories, and Josh Pastner

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Former University of Memphis star Austin Nichols joined Sudu Upadhyay and Chip Williams for episode three of The 5.

Nichols--a former five-star recruit--talked about his time playing AAU basketball in Memphis, how he almost committed to another college out of high school, his time playing for Josh Pastner, and what it was like playing this past season in the G-League with the Memphis Hustle.

Nichols also shared his thoughts on how difficult he thought it would be for Penny Hardaway to make the jump from coaching high school to coaching a high-level D-I basketball program, plus who he thinks Penny will land on the recruiting trail.
