Earl Timberlake ready to go for Tigers basketball
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The monster recruiting class University of Memphis Basketball Coach Penny Hardaway is putting together gets a boost from within the ranks.
Hardaway has already alluded to it, but now there’s confirmation from outside sources.
Guard Earl Timberlake is cleared to begin all basketball-related activities. That’s according to cbssports.com’s Jon Rothstein.
Timberlake, a heralded transfer from Miami, had been dealing with both shoulder and ankle injuries at the conclusion of last season.
He ended up playing only seven games for the hurricanes as a freshman.
His injuries and his status as a 4-star recruit out of Maryland led him to ream doctors with the Washington Football Team in the off-season.
Considered a Top 10 NBA pick before the injury, Timberlake prepped at National Powerhouse DeMatha Catholic.
The 6′6″, 215 pounder is a force driving the lane and around the basket.
