Will Carl Cherenfant join Memphis 2023 class?


My fearless colleague Rob Cassidy put in a FutureCast for 2023 four-star Carl Cherenfant to Memphis earlier this week, and after conversations with some sources I’ve followed suit. This would give the Tigers their second commit in the last couple of weeks, joining three-star Ryan Forrest.

If Cherenfant ends up committing, he surely won’t be the last prospect to join the Memphis fold. The Tigers have a good chance to land three-star forward David Tubek and four-stars Ty-Laur Johnson and Ashton Hardaway.



ZZ Clark garners interest after recent decommittment.

Since opening his recruitment this week and decommitting from Illinois, 2024 three-star guard ZZ Clark has many schools reaching out to him. Over the last few days, Clark has heard from Georgia, Washington, Florida, Nebraska, Miami and Tennessee, among others. He’s in the process of planning visits and wants to make a trip to some of the Southeastern schools on his list.
