August, 27, 2012
The Memphis Tigers secured a commitment from one of their top targets when ESPN 100 small forward Nick King (Memphis, Tenn./East) picked the hometown Tigers over Vanderbilt, Texas and Tennessee.

King, ranked No. 28 overall in the 2013 class, inserted himself into a historic Memphis recruiting class as part of the transition group from Conference USA to the Big East. King joins shooting guard Markel Crawford (Memphis, Tenn./Melrose) in the Tigers class.

King pumped in 21 points a game for East as a junior. The team finished 23-9 with a state championship and King was the MVP of the state tournament.
