I doubt Pastner could sell Wall, Henry, or Cousins on the idea to play for him at Memphis instead of playing for a proven coach not just at Kentucky, but Kansas, Duke, etc.
Also, another under the radar note, Michael Porter is calling it a career.
Graduated in three years, married, and a kid on the way. I didn't like Porter's decision making at times, but he was definitely had the best work ethic of anybody on that team last year. Best of luck to Michael Porter in his future endeavors.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
He has to arrange for his "Cousins" to take the test for him....I'll be here all week....

From the Sporting News:
"I'd still say it's between ... three schools -- Kansas, Kentucky and Memphis," Carl Henry, Xavier's father, told the paper.
Responding to a Sporting News report, new Memphis coach Josh Pastner denied that he'd spoken to Carl about a job as director of player operations and said that a deal for Carl to take the job was not in place. Carl told The Oklahoman that he has not heard from Pastner about the job offer.
But a lot of that had to do with Tubby Smith. Wright grew up a UK fan and could see the writing on the wall in terms of pro potential at UK vs UNC. Wall OTOH is more likely one and done, and Cal managed to lead one of the best one and done PG's to a championship game.
I don't see UNC being a player in this one. If UNC wanted Wall, I believe they would have went after him instead of Dexter Strickland early in the recruiting process. That and it doesn't seem like Wall fits Roy Williams style of 3-4 year players.
UNC's style of play is a great fit for Wall. Not that Cal's isn't, mind you. If Roy is expressing interest though, then I think they are absolutely a player for him.
