Former UK commit D.J. Jeffries commits to Memphis Tigers

Jeffries picks Memphis while James Wiseman is on their campus.

As expected, D.J. Jeffries has committed to Penny Hardaway and the Memphis Tigers.

That was widely expected to happen when Jeffries decommitted from the Kentucky Wildcats over the summer. It was a bit of an ugly divorce, as Jeffries’ family claimed that Kentucky coaches handled the recruitment “unprofessionally.”

Kentucky didn’t miss out on much, as they ultimately landed commitments from four-star forward Dontaie Allen and five-star forward Kahlil Whitney. They’re also still in the mix for five-star forwards Keion Brooks and Jaden McDaniels, so Jeffries may have felt he was already being recruited over in his own class

It will be interesting to see what, if any effect this has on James Wiseman, who is a actually visiting Memphis this weekend. Wiseman and Jeffries played together for Hardaway on the AAU circuit, so you have to think Memphis getting one of them will help land the other.
