He left the Tigers in November and had several issues in his short time with Memphis, including missing 2 weeks of preseason practice for "personal reasons." He returned, but never played in a game.
NCAA transfer rules allow him to practice immediately, but he cannot play until the second semester next season. He is the first McDonald's All-America to sign with the Rebels. *
