MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - With the University of Memphis heading to the Cotton Bowl for the first time in school history, the Tigers keep the momentum rolling in recruiting by signing 14 players on the first day of the early national signing period.

Former Raleigh Egypt Kayln Grandberry among the more high profile signees.

Grandberry was the No. 7 junior college running back in the nation, and earned JUCO All American Status at Jones Jr. College in Mississippi.

Former Ridgeway High star Kundarius Taylor comes back to Memphis after originally signing with Oklahoma.

The 6-foot-2-inch, 200-pounder is rated the No. 4 junior college receiver in the nation after starring at Copiah-Lincoln Community College, also in Mississippi.

Also signing with Memphis is Keilon Brown, a duel threat quarterback who's a three-star recruit out of Zachary, Louisiana.

Brown threw for over 2,000 yards and ran for over 1,000 yards in each of his last two prep seasons. He had 42 total touchdowns as a junior and 50 more as a senior.

The Tigers class is currently rated 58th nationally, the highest in school history.
