The John Calipari domino effect continued Thursday as one of his Memphis signees from the fall, Nolan Dennis, has now signed a letter of intent with Baylor. When Calipari left his Memphis coaching position to head to Kentucky, Dennis asked to be released from the scholarship he signed in November, and the Tigers granted it.
When Dennis re-opened the process, Baylor, UConn and Oklahoma formed his top three after it became apparent there would be room for him to follow Calipari to Kentucky.
Dennis is a 6-foot-5 shooting guard out of Richland (North Richland Hills, Texas). He is considered a four-star level prospect by two recruiting services.
"When I was there, I felt good chemistry with the team," Dennis told Rivals.com. "The coaching staff is great and the school is nice. From the gym to the locker rooms, it has the feel of a NBA team. I just had a really good feel about the situation there ... Baylor has players going to The League who are putting the school on the map," he said. "I want to come in and help take the program to the next level."
