Kentucky Sports Radio VIA Scout is reporting that 2010, 5-Star shooting guard Will Barton has verbally committed to play for the Memphis Tigers.
Will Barton, whom was believed to be a Kentucky lean, has chosen to play for the Tigers alongside his brother, Antonio(A 3 Star PG). Several Kentucky sites had been reporting that Barton would commit to the Cats in the near future, but Josh Pastner apparently changed the thought process of the Barton's when offering both brothers.
Barton is an excellent coup for Memphis. He is a multi-skilled and extremely talented shooting guard who is considered to be one of the top 10 players in his class. Pastner may be lacking in head coaching experience, but has always been known as a top notch recruiter and is off to a good start in the Fed Ex City.
