A 19-year-old international player committed to play for head coach Penny Hardaway, and the Memphis Tigers.

Ian Granja, a 6′8 forward was born in Spain but played in the Czech Republic last season.

Granja played 19 games for the Czech U19 league, averaged nearly 14 points, 4 rebounds, and shot 43% from the field.

He also played 19 games for BK Sojky Pelhrimov, a professional team, where he averaged 9 points and 3 rebounds.

Granja joins a Tigers incoming class consisting of Kaodirichi Akobundu-Ehiogu, Emmanuel Akot, Kendric Davis, Keonte Kennedy, and Elijah McCadden.

Coach Penny Hardaway still has one scholarship available, which could increase to two if Alex Lomaz leaves the program.
