They get another top 50-recruit with the signing of Point-Forward Wesley Witherspoon.

The, 6'8", 187-pounder from Lilburn, Georgia makes it official this afternoon.

He signs with Memphis, picking the Tigers over Florida, Texas and Virginia.

His addition, along with Highly ranked guard Tyreke Evans, and 4-star forwards Matt Simpkins and Angel Garcia give Memphis a chance at a the top-ranked recruiting class in the Nation.

The Tigers are also pursuing forward Devin Ebanks, a top-20 ranked player.

He's expected in Memphis for an official visit May 9th.
