Miami Hurricanes transfer Earl Timberlake commits to Memphis Tigers

Former Miami wing Earl Timberlake, one of the top college basketball transfers this spring, has committed to play at Memphis next season, he announced Thursday.

"I felt like I can learn a lot from [coach] Penny Hardaway -- all he's done in his career," Timberlake said to ESPN. "I like the way they defend, they have the No. 1-ranked defense in the country. I can add to that. I like how they see my game. They know I can pass and they'll help me get back to defending the way I know I can defend and try to win a national championship.
