Coach: Kendrick no longer at Memphis

University of Memphis freshman guard Jelan Kendrick is off the

team.

Coach Josh Pastner announced the move in a release on Saturday.

He did not elaborate other than to say that they decided it was

best to part ways.

The 6-foot-6 guard from Atlanta missed two weeks of preseason

practice for “personal reasons” and had just been reinstated to the

19th-ranked Tigers on Nov. 4.

A McDonald’s All-American, Kendrick was rated the No. 8 prospect

by Rivals.com.
