The latest edition of the Recruiting Rundown discusses Dakari Johnson’s 2013 ranking, Memphis’ move in the 2013 class rankings, plus Tyus Jones’ new school list.

2014 continues to lose depth

Dakari Johnsonis the latest 2014 recruit to reclassify to 2013.News broke Monday evening that the five-star center would move forward to the 2013 class, becoming the third top 10 recruit in the 2014 class to do so. Andrew Wiggins and Noah Vonlehboth recently made the move.

So the next question is where does Johnson fall in the 2013 top 100?

The 6-foot-10 big man out of Montverde (Fla.) Academy will check in at No. 15 overall and as the No. 1 center prospect in the 2013 class.

Johnson, who had to sit out the high school season last year, led the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League in rebounding by reeling in 182 boards in 18 games for an average of 10.7 per game.

Johnson won a Gold medal at the Fiba U17 World Championships. He participated in four games in the event and averaged five points and 4.3 rebounds a game.

Memphis moves up again

It’s not often a prospect makes a college decision that genuinely shocks me.

But Austin Nichols, a four-star recruit out of Memphis (Tenn.) Briarcrest, managed to do so on Monday when he picked Josh Pastner’s Memphis Tigers over Tennessee, Duke, Virginia, Vanderbilt and Auburn.

The school of thought was that Nichols favored Tennessee because his twin sister is a student there. In the end, Nichols wanted to stay closer to home, according to his father — Mark Nichols.

With the Nichols commitment, Memphis moves up to No. 2 in the 2013 recruiting class rankings, trailing Kentucky, who has commitments from three top 10 recruits.

Memphis now holds commitments from three top 50 recruits — Nick King (No. 21), Kuran Iverson (No. 35) and Nichols (No. 50). Pastner and company also hold pledges from Rashawn Powell (No. 87) and three-star guard Markel Crawford.

Out To Pastner

Last Updated: 11/05/2012


Josh Pastner (Nelson Chenault)

Prospects seem to be pretty psyched to join Josh Pastner’s Memphis Tigers. With the addition of No. 12 overall recruit Austin Nichols (Eads, Tenn./Briarcrest) on Monday, the Tigers now have four ESPN 100 recruits committed and five overall. But the Tigers aren’t just picking up elite-level guys, they are getting elite-level local talent. No. 8 SF Nick King (Memphis, Tenn./East) and SG Markel Crawford (Memphis, Tenn./Melrose) call Memphis their hometown, while Nichols is from about 30 minutes down the road.

But local products aren’t the only ones who want to play for Pastner. In fact, good chemistry with a Connecticut-based big man helped Nichols decide on Memphis. Nichols played with ESPN 100 No. 7 SF Kuran Iverson (Windsor, Conn./Fishburne Military School) at the Under Armour Elite 24 Showcase this summer and two got along well.

Point guard Rashawn Powell (Orlando, Fla./Dr. Phillips) rounds out a class that has Memphis up to No. 2 in the rankings. And the Tigers could still land another ESPN 100 prospect, as they are in the hunt for Devin Williams and Keith Frazier.
