Recruits Raving

By David Scott - October 12, 2007

MEMPHIS -- The mats have been placed over teh court and the Memphis cheer and dance teams are pumping up the crowd. Not quite sure how I'm avoiding the distraction of the Tiger dancers, but for you, the dedicated Hang Time hanger-on, I'm fighting through the battle.

Was able to get time with several of the recruits in the building but was kindly rebuffed by the most intriguing prospect of them all, New Jersey's Michael Gilchrist (scroll down), a class of 2011 prospect.

Other recruits comments after the jump:

Elliott Williams:

"This is my fourth and final official visit. I've already been to Duke, Virginia and Tennessee. After this official, I'll sit down with my family and we'll discuss all of it. I'm not in a rush to make a decision.

"I know the guys at Memphis pretty well and I came to a lot of their games last year. This is a Tiger atmosphere here and ii all fits me.

"My parents have been a huge help through it all. I couldn't do this without them. It's overbearing at times, but they keep me calm."

Leslie McDonald:

"I'm just loving the environment and to see all these people from my hometown, it's just crazy. I'm a hometown guy.

"The whole recruiting proces sis very enjoyable and I'll probably make a decision during this time next year."

Durand Scott:

"I won't decide til next year but I know [Assistant] Coach Chuck Martin and I trust him. They have a special staff and they have all been so friendly to me.

"I didn't even know they play in this building [the FedEx Forum]. This is a great place to play in."
