DeMarcus Cousins (LeFlore, AL) gave an update on his recruitment at the 2009 Spalding Hoophall Classic in Springfield, MA.
Memphis and Coach John Calipari now are the leader for his services, after he re-opened his recruitment since UAB would not give a written agreement letting him out of his letter of intent if Coach Mike Davis was no longer at the university.
Other schools that have been named by Cousins to receive an official visit in the spring include Kansas State and N.C. State. He also listed Wake Forest and Virginia Tech as schools of interest.
UAB is completely eliminated from his list of schools regardless if Coach Mike Davis is there next year. Cousins said “UAB is out of the picture, but I’m still down with Mike Davis,” he said. “It’s a bad situation down there, and nothing is going to change. Even if Coach Davis is there, I’m not going there.”
He helped lead his team to a 67-54 victory over Lincoln, NY at the Spalding Hoophall Classic on Monday afternoon. He finished the game with 17 points, 20 rebounds, 2 blocks, 1 steal, 2 assist and 3 turnovers.

Roscoe Smith is a 6’8 extremely long and athletic wing forward who plays aggressive at both ends of the floor. He attacks the rim well with either hand and uses his athletic ability to finish strong inside. He has range out beyond the 3pt line with ease and a nice mid-range pull up jumper. He uses his long frame on the defensive end of the floor to alter and swat away shots with ease. He has a ton of upside which is why so many schools are after him for his services.
