With a trip to No. 10 Ole Miss scheduled for next weekend, it would be natural for the University of Memphis football team to overlook Middle Tennessee.
According to his guardian Gerald Hamilton, 2015 five-star forward Skal Labissiere has set all of his visit dates for this fall.
Justin Fuente has had two shots at MTSU, and has come up short on both occasions. In fact, Memphis hasn't beaten the Blue Raiders since 2010.
After curb stomping Austin Peay and taking No. 11 UCLA down to the wire at the Rose Bowl, expectations for the Tigers have changed both locally and nationally.
According to a source, 2016 five-star forward and Memphis commit Dedric Lawson is working to reclassify to the class of 2015.
Justin Fuente was on Sports 56 Middays on Thursday, and told Greg Gaston and Eli Savoie that the Tigers would have gone for two against UCLA if they had scored late.
Southern transfer and former three-star power forward Calvin Godfrey has been cleared to play by the NCAA at the University of Memphis, a source confirmed to Memphis Roar.
Justin Fuente isn't into moral victories. However, he is perfectly fine with fans applauding a narrow loss to a top-15 team.
Memphis may have startled some people by going toe-to-toe with No. 11 UCLA last Saturday, but several of the Tigers' commitments for 2015 knew it was coming.
Although Memphis would like to capitalize on its momentum on the field and with the fans, Justin Fuente is just fine with having a bye week right now.
