Like Penny Hardaway, I imagine that many of you over this past weekend were either baking in the Southwind sun or getting your sports fix via the televised WGC golf tournament being held in the Tigers backyard.

Even though the most important local sporting event this weekend took place outside on difference fades of turf instead of the hardwood, the basketball world was still churning.

There were several high school players with University of Memphis ties who made announcements over the weekend via their Twitter accounts.

Chris Moore

On Friday, West Memphis, AR power forward Chris Moore tweeted out a list of his “Final 14” schools. The prospect from across the bridge has been on the Tiger’s recruitment list for a while now.

Listed at 6’6″ on some recruiting sites, Moore is a tweener for the forward position but as he points out, he can provide a matchup problem with his quickness against bigger opponents while utilizing his size against smaller guys.

Currently, Moore is a 4-star recruit in the class of 2020.

Moore averaged 15.9 points and 7.1 rebounds in 18 EYBL games this summer, including Peach Jam. According to prior reports, Moore will make an on-campus visit to Memphis on August 31st during the Ole Miss – Memphis football game.

Moussa Diabate

One of the top players in the class of 2021, Moussa Diabate, announced that he will be transferring to IMG Academy from DME Academy for the upcoming high school season. Another Memphis target, former Whitehaven High School standout Matthew Murrell, will also be attending IMG in the Fall.

In the same tweet, Diabate released a list of his top schools via Tipton Edits. That list – albeit not very short – included the University of Memphis.

Diabate is currently representing France in the FIBA u18 European Championship. Evan Daniels of 247Sports is on-site in Greece scouting Diabate and has been impressed with him so far. I would expect a more in-depth report from Daniels later this week.

Listed a 6’9″ and 215 lbs, the number one player in the state of Florida for 2021 has the physical tools to impact the game when on the floor.

Impressed with the development of Moussa Diabate (https://t.co/vx3FlP71Ex). Averaging 12 PPG & 12.7 RPG through three games for France’s u18 team. Has played with terrific energy in Greece. More coming on @247Sports this week. pic.twitter.com/Tkt2sePdTX

Devin Askew

The 5-star combo guard who played this summer with Peach Jam runner-up Team WhyNot mentioned Memphis when asked by Evan Daniels for a list of schools that had extended offers.

In 20 games on the EYBL circuit this summer, Askew averaged 11 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game. Beyond that, Askew averaged nearly 2 steals per game as well. As a bonus, he shot the deep ball at a 41% clip. I watched Askew in the Peach Jam championship game against the MOKAN Elite and he was clearly one of the more impactful players on the floor, despite playing up a year. Askew held the team together on both ends of the floor and flourished alongside highly touted teammate Jalen Green.

Currently, Askew is listed as a top 20 prospect in the class of 2021. Earlier there was speculation that he would reclassify to 2020, but now claims that option is off the table and he will stay in his current class.
