Want to check out one of Kentucky’s most coveted players in the 2019 class? Tonight at 7 p.m. James Wiseman’s Memphis East (Tenn.) will take on Webster Groves (Mo.) on ESPN2, giving you the perfect chance to do a little Thursday night scouting.
Memphis East is currently ranked number one in the country, and, as you can see above, is coached by Penny Hardaway. Because Wiseman also played for Hardaway on Team Penny in the EYBL, he was ruled ineligible for this season at Memphis East, but yesterday, was granted a temporary injunction so he can play for the time being.
There were some rumblings Wiseman might reclassify to 2018, but he shot those down last week. Regardless, Kentucky is still the clear favorite for his services, which is an excellent thing because he’s very good at basketball.
