National Prospect Nick King Picks Memphis

Small forward Nick King, a top-30 national prospect in the 2012 class at East High in Memphis, committed to join his hometown Memphis Tigers at a news conference in his school’s library Monday.
Jason Smith of the Commercial Appeal reported King made his choice obvious by putting on a Memphis ballcap, which led to cheers from the crowd attending his announcement.
King had considered Tennessee, Texas and Vanderbilt, but the small number of players in his recruitment is suggestive that many colleges figured it was likely he would stay close to home.
King is rated the No. 28 prospect in the nation by ESPN. Sporting News watched King play this summer at the Nike EYBL at the Peach Jam tournament, where he struggled to find his rhythm as he coped with the aftereffects of a concussion suffered during a previous event.
