Memphis head coach Justin Fuente announced the signings of Brayden Scott (Tulsa, Okla./Sequoyah-Tahlequah), Kewan Alfred (Beaumont, Texas/Trinity Valley CC), Ryan Coleman (Rialto, Calif./Riverside CC), Joe Craig (Gaffney, S.C./Copiah-Lincoln CC) and Adrian Henderson (Belton, Texas/Trinity Valley CC), according to the school's official site.

Alfred is a 6-foot-3, 245-pound defensive ranked in the ESPN JC 100. He was a first team all-conference selection this fall after posting 41 tackles, 3 sacks and 2 fumble recoveries.
Coleman, 6-foot-2, 215-pounds, is a linebacker who started his career at Idaho State before recording 53 tackles this season at Riverside CC.
Craig's a 5-foot-10, 170-pound wide receiver who originally played at Clemson. This fall, he caught 63 passes for 777 yards and 9 touchdowns.
The 6-foot, 180-pound Henderson is another wide receiver prospect. Over the course of two seasons at Trinity Valley CC, he caught 41 passes for 424 yards and 3 touchdowns.
