I had a chance to meet Tyreke Evans a few months back. Quiet kid, polite but had a confidence you can only get from being arguably the best high school player in the country. Since moving back to Philly, and a great article in the Philadelphia Inquirer on Undrcrwn, I heard about 2 kids from Philly were part of the best AAU team in the country. 1 of those kids was Wayne Ellington, who ended up helping the North Carolina Tarheels deep into the NCAA tournament. The other was a 6-6 sharp shooting guard that was only a junior.
Thanks to the small network in Philly, he found us... So today Tyreke made his announcement to attend the the University of Memphis (big up to Griff! Where you at!).
I wanted to create something that he would never forget. We gave him and his fam about 50 tees for the announcent that was live on espn2. Requests are though the roof.
Thanks to Pooh, Stephen, KO for making this happen. Also big up to Ron and Wes for really making this happen!
Here are a few flix. I rolled in with Reke Wallace, Set Free and Freeway. Philly stand up!
Congrats Tyreke! see you in memphis. I'll be at the BBQ spot.
