NCAA clears final two Memphis freshmen

Posted on: August 27, 2010 6:18 pm
A source close to the Memphis program told on Friday that the NCAA has cleared freshmen Chris Crawford and Hippolyte Tsafack, meaning all seven prospects in Josh Pastner's heralded recruiting class will be eligible to play for the Tigers this season.

Two of the incoming players (Joe Jackson and Jelan Kendrick) were McDonald's All-Americans, and a third (Will Barton) was ranked 10th nationally in the Class of 2010 by Add Tarik Black and Chris Crawford to the mix, and five of the seven prospects in the class were considered top 65 recruits by, which is why Memphis should be a consensus preseason Top 25 team.

Memphis opens with Centenary on Nov. 12.
