4 star consensus top 50 player Boogie Ellis has committed to the University Of Memphis. When Ellis decomitted from Duke he was instantly thought to land at Memphis. Boogie Ellis is the third pickup for Penny and staff in the last four days. Four star Lester Quinones signed his letter of intent on last Friday. The next day the Tigers got a verbal commitment from ULAR grad transfer sharp shooter Rayjon Tucker.
So what are the Tigers getting in Ellis? They are getting one of the best shooters in the country by far. Ellis shoot over 40% from 3 last summer on the EYBL circuit. Ellis at 6’3 can also get to the rim and finish with contact. Last summer Boogie Ellis opened alot of eyes by running through some of the top rated players nationally at the EYBL peach jam. Ellis has been on record stating he wants to play the point guard postion next season
Is Precious Achiuwa Next?
What’s up next? All eyes are now on 5 star forward Precious Achiuwa. The 6’9 freakishly athletic forward is thought to be the final piece of a great 2019 recruiting class. If Memphis lands the services of Mr Achiuwa you can rest assure the Memphis Tigers will be a pre season top top 5 team nationally. A little over a year ago Penny Hardway stated that he felt he could land not only the top players locally but nationally as well. Coach Hardaway has definitely lived up to his word.
