Thanks to a great start to their early recruiting efforts, the Tigers already had the No. 7 recruiting class in the country. Tuesday, that class got a little better.
Kuran Iverson the No. 24 player in the land committed to the Tigers on Tuesday morning.
A native of Hartford,the 6-foot-8 swingman is doing his senior season at Waynesville (Va.) Fishbourne and decided to end things after visiting the Memphis campus a few weeks back.
The trajectory of Iverson's career has been an interesting one to track. After bursting onto the scene as a freshman, his play took a noticeable dip between his sophomore and junior year while he got a bit out of shape.
During the summer though, Iverson came back a much more lean and active player. His bread and butter is to attack off the dribble and he's got plenty of length and athleticism. His jumper can come and go, but as Iverson continues to gain consistency he will be trouble.
With Iverson in the fold, the Tigers haul is now a quite impressive one and very likely to move up in the next team rankings update. Also onboard are four-star wings Nick King and Markel Crawford and four-star point guard Rashawn Powell.
Up next, the Tigers would like to add some post help. Notably, they are in deep with Rivals150 center Dwight Coleby who will be making a decision in the near future.
