The players listed above is just a small part of the history of the Team Memphis Elite organization. There was a time when the program was one of the largest in Memphis. They had a pipeline of young teams, middle school teams and high school aged teams, which led to them cranking out high level collegiate players. There is a lot of excitement around the program today because they are poised to start the trend again.
