    R.J. Hampton, the 6-foot-4 combo guard from Little Elm (TX), will remain in the Class of 2020 instead of reclasifying to 2019 and has also set several visits.

    Hampton also plans to visit Memphis officially on Sept. 13 with Jalen Green, Rod Hampton, R.J.’s father, confirmed. They announced it earlier this month at the SLAM Summer Classic.

    Asked what Memphis’ message is, Rod Hampton said: “Just come run the show. Learn from a bunch of pros. Play with other five-stars and win.”

    Meantime, Hampton will also visit Kansas (Sept. 28) and Kentucky (Oct. 12) for their Midnight Madness events, his father said.

    According to 247Sports, Hampton is the No. 4 player in the 2020 class and the No. 2 combo guard.
