The Memphis Tigers Head Coach Josh Pastner has proven himself as a great recruiter. As evidence, look at the recruits he brought in this year. 

He just acquired the job last year and has the ability to turn the program around. His first stint was this year’s recruiting class. In the 2011 recruiting class, there haven’t been any verbal commitments, but the top recruits are all considering the Tigers' program.

In 2012, nothing changes. They have some great talent wanting to play for their program. The most notable recruit is Perry Ellis from Wichita, Kansas.

Ellis is a 6-foot-7 power forward that will be a great addition to any frontcourt. In fact, once he reaches 2010, I believe he may be able to play on the wing. 

He has the ability to face up in the post and attack the defense. Not to mention, his pump-fake and moves in the post, solidifies him as a solid offensive threat. 

It's reported that Ellis and Pastner has great history with each other. Pastner was the second coach that offered Ellis according to 

Ellis and Pastner have grown a relationship with Ellis and he could be Memphis bound once he makes his decision. However, he does still have offers from Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky, and Oklahoma.

Ellis could be going anywhere once he makes his decision in 2012. But if I had a guess to where he might go; I would guess to Memphis with Josh Pastner.
