Alex Poythress, a senior forward from Northeast High (Clarksville, Tenn.), is currently on an official visit to the University of Memphis.

It's the last of Poythress' visits, as he's already taken trips to Vanderbilt, Florida, and Kentucky. He attended Kentucky's Big Blue Madness last weekend.

Poythress is one of several five-star prospects still considering the Tigers; Jarnell Stokes, William "Shaq" Goodwin, and Tony Parker all took official visits to Memphis last weekend for Memphis Madness.

The 6-foot-7 forward took an unofficial visit to Memphis last season for the East Carolina game in Jan., but was unable to tour the campus.

Poythress is the No. 16-ranked player in 2012 and the No. 3 small forward.
