[Penny] Hardaway now has the No. 1 recruiting class in his first full recruiting cycle as Memphis' head coach. Achiuwa joins a loaded group that includes No. 1 overall prospect James Wiseman, five-star forward D.J. Jeffries (No. 25), ESPN 100 four-stars Rejean "Boogie" Ellis (No. 38), Lester Quinones (No. 81) and Malcolm Dandridge (No. 100), and local four-star prospect Damian Baugh.
In light of the FBI investigation and soon-to-be NCAA inquiries, I'm surprised Memphis was able to pull this off. I suppose playing for an ex-NBA player has it's pull, but $omething doe$n't $mell right.... For reference, Ohio State lands at #11 in ESPN's NCAAB recruiting rankings for 2019.
