MemphisRoar has confirmed that the Memphis staff, including Josh Pastner and Glynn Cyprien, made their way to Birmingham, Alabama yesterday to visit the highly pursued five-star point guard Eric Bledsoe. According to our sources, the visit went well and Memphis is “hanging in there.”
An interesting development with regards to Memphis’ involvement with Eric Bledsoe is Memphis’ new assistant coach Glynn Cyprien. While at Kentucky Cyprien was the lead recruiter for Bledsoe. According to many people we speak with who are close to the situation, Eric Bledsoe was a virtual lock to the University of Kentucky prior to Billy Gillespie being fired, mainly because of the relationship that he had with Cyprien.
MemphisRoar is currently working to reach Eric Bledsoe to get an update on his weekend visitors, and we’ll keep you updated as we learn more about this developing situation.
