Keonte Kennedy
After Kennedy withdrew his commitment to Vanderbilt, he elected to join Penny Hardaway’s staff. An average of 14 points and six boards per game is what the 6-foot-5-inch wing can expect this season. Last season, Kennedy only appeared in 19 games for the Miners due to an ankle ailment that kept him out for most of the conference play. He will have two more years of eligibility after transferring to Memphis as a graduate student.
Despite his little stature, Kennedy provides the Tigers with a strong presence in the backcourt. At times, Kennedy gets ignored because of his quick hands and ability to transform plays into fast-paced transition buckets for the rest of the squad. Kennedy can fill the void left by former Tiger Lester Quinones, who was a better shooter and bigger man, but he lacks the versatility to play both shooting guard and small forward as Quinones did.
Kennedy has been a bit of a jack of all trades. A three-star recruit, he began his college career at Xavier in 2018 and appeared in 22 games. Upon transferring to the University of Texas El Paso, Kennedy was forced to sit out the 2019-2020 season. He would go on to start 43 games with the Miners.
Due to Kennedy’s withdrawal from Vanderbilt, the incoming freshmen’s new coach, Penny Hardaway, was able to get his services. Last season, the 6’5 wing averaged 14.3 points and 6.8 rebounds per game for the Suns. As a result of an ankle ailment, Kennedy only appeared in 19 games for the Miners last season. He will have two years of eligibility remaining when he arrives in Memphis as a grad transfer.
The Tigers’ backcourt is strengthened by the presence of Kennedy, who combines size and athleticism.

Kennedy can fill the void left by former Tiger Lester Quinones, who was a better shooter and bigger man, but he lacks the versatility to play both shooting guard and small forward as Quinones did.
