Memphis Strikes Gold

Shawne Williams leads this year's Class. But will he be there for next year's tipoff?

Memphis is #7

According to's basketball expert, Dave Telep, the University of Memphis has the 7th best 2005 recruiting class.

SF Shawne Williams (Laurinburg Prep) Laurinburg, NC 6-8
PG Chris Douglas-Roberts (Northwestern HS) Detroit, MI 6-5
SG Antonio Anderson (Laurinburg Prep) Laurinburg, NC 6-4
SF Ricky Sanchez (IMG Academy) Bradenton, FL 6-11
SF Robert Dozier (Laurinburg Prep) Laurinburg, NC 6-8

This of course is based on all of these players showing up for the 2005-06 season.

The University of Memphis seems to be the NCAA version of the old sitcom, SOAP.

Will Shawne Williams jump to the NBA?

Will Robert Dozier actually sign with the Tigers?

If Memphis can somehow get all of these guys to play in the 2005-06 season, they will be in great shape. Although Sean Banks will most likely depart after this season, the Tigers will be loaded at point and shooting guard. The athleticism and size of this recruiting class will keep Memphis at the top for years to come.
