AK has always recruited Memphis well, and continues to do that this offseason. Marcanvis Hymon, a consensus top 125 player in his class, committed to our Rebs yesterday. He's an athletic, 6-6 swingman from Whitehaven High School. I have not seen him play, so cannot comment on specifics of his game, but he looks like a good pickup for AK's system and preferred style of play. Most importantly, he will help create a lot of confusion for the PA announcer in 2014, who will have to correctly pronounce his name along with Sebastian Saiz and Janari Joessarr. He joins Gian Luis Clavell, a 6-3 JUCO shooting guard from Kansas, in the recruiting class of 2014. Clavell is expected to step in and try to fill Marshall Henderson's role after he graduates this year.
By my count, we only have two seniors on the roster this year, so this would round out the recruiting class. Of course, AK sometimes signs kids and then lets them go, so there might be a scholarship open up. We'll have to see how that plays out.
