Parrom injured, Black to Memphis

An Arizona team that could struggle with depth this season will be even thinner for the next month or two, as freshman swingman Kevin Parrom will miss four-to-eight weeks with a stress fracture in his left foot.

"Nobody needs to practice more, and nobody needs to learn more lessons than a newcomer," head coach Sean Miller told the Arizona Daily Star. "Kevin's very talented."

"It's frustrating right now, but I'll be all right," Parrom added. "Things happen for a reason."

The 6-6 Parrom was a highly-touted newcomer from New York who averaged 8.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game in the two exhibition games for the Wildcats.

Black adds to Memphis’ class           

Memphis has overtaken Ohio State for the top recruiting class heading into next season, as power forward Tarik Black committed to the Tigers earlier today.

The 6-7 Black chose Memphis over Marquette, Tennessee, Alabama and Florida.

He adds to a Memphis recruiting class that includes three five-star prospects in guards Will Barton and Joe Jackson, and forward Jelan Kendrick. Chris Crawford, Antonio Baron and Hippolyte Tsafack are also in the class.
