Penny Hardaway is lighting the recruiting world on fire.
With the addition of five-star forward Precious Achiuwa, who announced his commitment to the Memphis basketball program Friday, Hardaway and the Tigers now boast the No. 1 recruiting class in the country, according to 247 Sports.
Memphis passed Kentucky to move into the top spot. Arizon and Duke occupy the next two spots in the current 247 Sports rankings.
Achiuwa, a five-star forward, is the 14th-ranked prospect in the 2019 recruiting class, according to 247 Sports. He joins a group of incoming recruits that also features expected one-and-done-level signee James Wiseman, who is widely projected to be a high lottery pick in the 2020 NBA draft.
