Jelan Kendrick signs with Memphis

According to a report by Dan Wolken of The Memphis Commercial Appeal, Marietta (GA) wing Jelan Kendrick has signed a Letter of Intent with Josh Pastner and the Memphis Tigers.

Though Memphis had been recruiting Kendrick hard, and he had been on campus as recently as last month for an unofficial visit, there were no indications he was ready to pull the trigger.

Instead, Kendrick sneaked into town Saturday afternoon and called an impromptu news conference at The Peabody, where he announced that he had indeed signed a National Letter of Intent with the Tigers.

Kendrick, a cousin of former Indiana fan favorite A.J. Moye, visited Bloomington two weekends ago and attended the Haunted Hall of Hoops. He’s the third top 20 recruit to sign with Memphis and his addition will likely push the Tigers ahead of Ohio State for the nation’s top class.
