Times have been tough for Jelan Kendrick, he’s bounced around between multiple high schools and AAU teams, now he’s been suspended indefinitely from The University of Memphis’ basketball team for allegedly making verbal threats toward a teammate. Rivals.com ranked Kendrick No. 15 in the Class of 2010 making him a valuable prospect for the Tigers. Now only time will tell if he’ll ever play for the Tigers. From CBSSports.com: “He had an issue on the team … and they’re trying to [investigate] what actually happened,” Daren Darby, Kendrick’s former summer coach, told CBSSports.com on Tuesday. “They’re trying to get to the bottom of it, and they feel like they need some time to make sure they have all the facts about what happened. “In addition to the threat, a source who spoke on the condition of anonymity told CBSSports.com that Kendrick has been in multiple altercations with teammates since arriving on campus, one of which contributed to second-year coach Josh Pastner banning Kendrick from the Tigers’ preseason trip to the Bahamas. Reached Tuesday by phone, Pastner declined to discuss with CBSSports.com the details surrounding Kendrick’s suspension, saying, “It’s a personal matter, and Jelan will be back [with the team] when the matter is resolved.”
