Dave Telep,

Pierre Niles answered two questions this week. One of them is where he’s going to school this year and the other is where he’ll be in the fall of 2006.

The Memphis Tigers have a new power forward. Pierre Niles, a former standout from Memphis Ridgeway, committed to the school, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

The 6-foot-8 Niles told the paper that he’s fulfilling a dream. “I grew up watching Memphis, and have always wanted to play there,” Niles said in an interview. This is a dream.”

Niles, part of Memphis’ strong senior class, will get his diploma elsewhere. The paper also reported that he’s enrolling at Lake Suzy (Fla.) Florida Prep.

A powerfully built forward, Niles has the look of a defensive end and the strength of a college senior already.
