Kerry Blackshear Jr. reportedly considering Memphis

Yet another school may be in the running for Kerry Blackshear, and if you’re a Kentucky fan, you’re not going to like who it is.

Arkansas hoops reporter Kevin McPherson is reporting that Blackshear is now considering Memphis. The Virginia Tech grad transfer is scheduled to begin his official visit to Tennessee tomorrow, after which he plans to visit Kentucky. He’s already visited Florida and Arkansas. Texas A&M, Michigan State, and Gonzaga are also in the mix, as is a return to Virginia Tech.

Landing Blackshear would be quite a coup for Penny Hardaway, who already has five-star center James Wiseman coming in, along with five-star small forward Precious Achiuwa and a bevy of four-star prospects, including former UK commit DJ Jeffries. At 6’10”, 250 lbs., Blackshear could be the perfect compliment to the Tigers’ frontcourt and make them a national title contender.

Time to get this kid to Lexington and wrap it up.

      Maybe he likes dodging bullets; Memphis 4th most dangerous city in the u.s. behind only St. Louis, Detroit, and Baltimore.

    Aren’t they out of scholarships anyway? If so, good luck telling DJ Jeffries he’s a walk on now.

    Any day now the NCAA are going to bring down allegations on Memphis and their paying players. Watch and see

      You think the NCAA acts that fast? Penny just started a year ago so it won’t happen soon

      Penny is not paying his players. He is selling them on him and the fedex forum arena. We shall see how he handles coaching

    Kerry, play for a coach that has at least 1 ncaa tourney win under his belt.

    If he was coming to UK he wouldn’t be taking all of those other busy.

      You gotta consider all offers when this much money is involved. There is more to life than winning games and building your brand at the #1 college basketball program on the planet.

    Penny still has to actually do something with the talent…..and keep them happy. Not sure that’s in his skill set.

    I drank the KSR koolaid when he entered the grad portal, and a KSR writer claimed his camp had reached out to Ky. Ky was the favorite if he didn’t stay in the draft, yards, yards !
    Now I wonder if he will even visit UK.

    In the end, the vampire will lock him into his gaze and steal his soul, a duffel bag will drop, and he will go to dook! I saw the movie.

    Penny is a Charlatan dressed up to be a Coach. I give Memphis 5 years before the SC ? drops on Penny and plugs him into a two-big Caricature from a Nike Ad. Wait a minute he already is just not as talented.
