MEMPHIS – Gearing up for the 2022 season, Penny Hardaway landed his first commitment for the class of 2023.

Former Marion High School standout Ryan Forrest gave a verbal commit to the Tigers Monday.

Forrest averaged 21 points a game for the Patriots before transferring to Link Academy in Missouri for his senior season.

The skilled 6’3” guard is a three-star prospect whose cousin is Shawn Forrest, who is assistant to head coach Penny Hardaway.
