Jaden Springer, one of the top shooting guards in the class of 2020, told Evan Daniels of 247Sports that he plans to visit Memphis during the weekend of September 13th.
During the weekend of his visit, the University of Memphis football team will be on the road against South Alabama.
Previously, Springer was listed as the #11 prospect in his class. After the most recent 247Sports rankings released, Springer fell a few spots to #13. However, he did remain the #3 shooting guard in the class of 2020.
In July, Springer released a list of his final 5 schools which included Memphis, Michigan, North Carolina, Florida, and Tennessee.
At this point, Memphis does not have any commitments for the upcoming recruiting class, after nailing down the top class in college basketball this season. There are still plenty of top recruits left on the board for 2020, but they are slowly but surely announcing their decisions.
5-star big man Greg Brown will visit Memphis on January 4th when the Tigers host Georgia in basketball – a highly anticipated matchup.
Matthew Murrell, a guard who transferred from local Whitehaven High to IMG Academy, released his top 5 schools which do not include Memphis.
Chet Holmgren, the top center prospect in the class of 2021 was rumored to have some ties to Memphis, but according to a recent interview, does not have Memphis pursuing him at this point.
Class of 2020 Olive Branch High School small forward, Cameron Matthews, released his top five that included Memphis, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, UAB, and Arkansas. Matthews is listed as a 3-star prospect currently.
