John Martin, a popular radio host in Memphis, dropped a line on Twitter that isn’t exciting for us Kentucky fans.
Martin said he spoke to Rod Hampton, the father of RJ Hampton, and Rod told him RJ and Boogie Ellis can play together at Memphis. Ellis is the four-star guard released from his commitment to Duke earlier today.
So, this is interesting.
Rod Hampton, father of five-star guard RJ Hampton, just told me: “RJ and Boogie Ellis is a strong possibility at Memphis. They can definitely play together.”

Memphis’ revived interest in Ellis could’ve been interpreted as giving up on Hampton, but instead Hampton is open to the idea of playing with Ellis in Memphis? The hell is Penny Hardaway telling these kids down there?
Penny might end up with the top recruiting class for the first time in Memphis history.
