5-star recruit drops Tigers from final list

5-star recruit drops Tigers from final list
Memphis head coach Penny Hardaway.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The late signing period is drawing to a close, and as hot as Penny Hardaway has been on the recruiting trail, one 5-star player is now looking elsewhere.

Multiple reports say guard R.J. Hampton is dropping the Tigers from his final list. This comes after the U of M signed 4-star point guard Boogie Ellis last week.

Ellis got out of his NLI with Duke and signed with the Tigers a week later. Memphis currently has one more scholarship available.

The Tigers are in the running to land 5-Star Forward Precious Achiuwa, who announced on his Twitter account he’ll make his college choice known this weekend.
