When four-star guard Lester Quinones committed to Memphis on Friday, the Tigers fans were in a complete frenzy. The commitment from the IMG Academy standout was expected for weeks, but Penny Hardaway and his staff shocked the college basketball world once again when they reeled in arguably the best graduate transfer in former Little Rock guard Rayjon Tucker.
Auburn, Kansas, Iowa State, Memphis and West Virginia were the final five for Tucker, but he was also mulling over forgoing his senior season and heading to the NBA. Tucker declared for the NBA Draft, and he had until May 30 to remove his name.
With his commitment to Memphis on Saturday, Tucker clearly made his decision. He was not invited to the NBA Combine, and the Tigers will be under a national spotlight next season, so the move makes sense for Tucker.
