    Figured I would get a thread started on this kid. Apparently, he loved it in Knoxville this weekend, he's good friends with stokes, and his parents are big fans of CCM. Will be interested to see if we can land him once other schools start calling (presumably Duke because he's white and goes to a private school).

    Coach Martin attended his game last night.

    This guy is important. I like our chances here. It might be tough to hold off Florida and Duke though.

    By the way, it seems like Martin has really been putting in some work in Memphis.

    Talk that UNC will get involved as well.

    Confused on something: If he is a '13 recruit, does that mean he would be coming in the Fall of 2013?

    He's friends with Stokes but plays the same position. They did play in the Super 80 on the same team though. His dad is also a huge UTK fan and supporter.

    I don't think that will be an issue, Fry. Stokes can just move over to the 5. When this kid gets here, Maymon and Hall will both be gone. We'll need more posts, so he'll fit in just fine if that's his only concern.

    Let's hope the Tuohy's don't adopt him or we'll lose him to Ole Miss too.

    Florida and Memphis will be the biggest competition. Unc is going to get involved too

    I'm just stunned that a guy who is from central casting for Duke or Virginia didn't find happiness with the Memphis program.

    Take it you're not buying the ex-girlfriend story?

    I assume he figured out Pastner is unrecoverable.

    The stories coming out of Memphis are priceless.

    GaryParrishCBS: The other four schools I mentioned earlier that Austin Nichols will not be released to are Tennessee, Providence, Iowa and Virginia.

    @GaryParrishCBS: According to @TheCAJasonSmith, Memphis is in a future tournament with Iowa, Providence and Virginia. So that’s the explanation there.

    @GaryParrishCBS: What’s hilarious is Memphis denied Tennessee as a possible “future” opponent. But Memphis has also said it won’t schedule Tennessee.

    @GaryParrishCBS: True story: Memphis initially sent Tennessee an email saying it can’t contact Austin Nichols because UT is a future opponent. Naturally …

    @GaryParrishCBS: … UT responded by saying, “Um, no we’re not.” So Memphis sent another email saying UT is now simply on a “restricted” list. Just because.

    As I say everytime there is a transfer, no school should be able to dictate where a player can or cannot go, especially if scholarships are year to year. Just one more way the NCAA screws the kids at the behest of big time programs (Or, quasi-ones like Memphis, in this case.).
