- Paul Biancardi, Basketball Recruiting
The American Athletic Conference is in its second year of existence, and it is coming off a national championship with UConn leading the way. Now, the conference is looking to build on that momentum on the recruiting trail.
Most impactful class: Memphis
They each will bring high-level versatility that will give head coach Josh Pastner options in the press and in the half court. K.J. (No. 44) is the better shooter and rebounder while Dedric (No. 26) is more comfortable inside the arc shooting and finishing. Because of their length, athletic ability and scoring instincts, combined with Pastner's pressing style, expect this pair to make heavy contributions and an immediate impact in their first season.
