Pilgrim Considering Memphis

The Memphis Tigers continue to bolster their roster for next year and beyond.

This past weekend, former St. George's standout Elliott Williams made the decision to transfer from Duke to Memphis.

Now word the Tigers are entertaining another possible addition.

Former Kentucky forward Matt Pilgrim has made a visit the University of Memphis.

WLEX in Lexington reports Pilgrim could make his decision as early as this week.

The 6'8" rising junior had to sit out all of last season with the Wildcats after transfering *to* Kentucky from Hampton University.

Pilgrim lost his spot at UK when John Calipari took over the program in April.

He'll likely ask the NCAA for a waiver of the transfer rule because he was forced out.

Pilgrim has ties to the Memphis program through former Kentucky assistant Glen Cyprien, who's now an assistant under Josh Pastner.
