Memphis basketball’s dominant recruiting run hit another fever pitch Wednesday with the addition of five-star Emoni Bates

Once hailed as the most promising basketball prospect of his generation, Bates announced his commitment to play for Penny Hardaway and the Tigers this season. 

“I will be taking my talents to Memphis,” Bates said during an Instagram Live broadcast before donning a Tigers baseball cap and being showered by confetti and cheers from a small group of family and supporters. 

“I just felt like coach Penny could prepare me for the next level,” Bates told Stadium’s Jeff Goodman and The Field of 68’s Rob Dauster shortly after his announcement. “I’m super excited (the recruiting process) is over. I’m ready. I’m about to lock in even more. I’m about to go turn up my Tiger fans.”
