Former Hampton standout Davion Warren commits to Memphis

Sports

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG) — Penny Hardaway and the Tigers need a big guard and they’re getting one with Davion Warren, who announced his commitment to the Tigers program Saturday.

“Just being coached by pretty much a hall of famer,” Warren said. “We kind of players similar positions and just what Memphis had leaving — I fit what they had leaving as far as coming in. So, I feel like I can come in and play right away and hopefully get a National Championship out of it.”

Warren, who was a senior this past year at Hampton University averaged 21 points a game and was named to the HBCU All-Star team for 2020-21.

“You know they say these people should go to these HBCU schools and stuff, but people really not giving these HBCUs exposure as the other schools. So, I was just a top 15 scorer in the country and not too many people know about it because I went to Hampton, but say if I went to Memphis it will be a big difference.”

This week Hardaway lost four players to the transfer portal, three of them veterans on the team.
