Latavious Williams is expected to commit to Memphis at a Tuesday afternoon press conference, his high school coach told CBSSports.com.

"I'd faint if anything [besides Memphis] came out of his mouth," said Humble (TX) Christian Life Center's Carlos Wilson. In other words, unless Williams surprises everybody -- and sends his coach to the floor -- he will be Josh Pastner's second recruit, joining junior college standout Will Coleman.

Williams is a 6-foot-7 forward who is rated as the 17th-best prospect in the Class of 2009 by Rivals.com.

Top 20 recruit expected to pick Memphis

mttigers43, "we would love a shot at kentucky"?   No, you would not. You had a couple of hot years. We applaud you for them. You have a new Memphis Coach who is going to do well for you. But you would lose to Kentucky right now with the teams that they both have. Like last last year, in theory UK would have loved to have beaten UNC. In reality, it was not such a hot idea. Unless of course, you just meant Memphis would love a shot at kentucky because it would guarantee a nationally televised game & you would get a big paycheck. I doubt that is what you meant, but suspect that is the best thing you could expect right now from that matchup. Best of luck to you. Please thump Louisville a couple of times next year just for the fun of it.

Top 20 recruit expected to pick Memphis

I wonder what it is like being Bruce Pearl right now. In his mind, he is the best coach in the country, coaching at the best school in the country....but reality is....he's the third best coach at his own school, the fourth best coach in the state, at the 2nd best school in the state,  the 4th best coach in the SEC, and the 4th best school in the SEC. With Memphis having 4 Top 20 recruits next year, he will not even get one of them to come to Tennessee. Memphis, Carolina, and Kentucky will get them all.

I am SOOOO glad to see that soon, Tennessee will go back to their mediocrity. And I'd bet all the money in the world that Pearl leaves Tennessee in the next 5 years.
