Tigers Add Hoopster/May Lose Another

It's getting antsy at the University of Memphis Basketball office right now.

Currently with just 7 scholarship players on the Roster, and with one of those still facing eligibility questions, new U of M Head Coach Josh Pastner is out to grab whomever he can get.

The Commercial Appeal report the Tigers will sign 6'5" Forward D.J. Stephens from Killeen, Texas.

There's not much information to gather on Stephens, other than from his AAU Team, the Texas D-1 Ambassadors, which lists him as an Athletic Wing with a 43-inch vertical leap.

Tulsa and other Conference USA schools reportedly already had scholarship offers for Stephens.

A big Question Mark surrounds the status of Frenchman Martin Ngaloro, who signed with the Tigers last Spring..

The Tigers haven't received any updates on his eligibility..

Plus, he suffered a knee injury during recent workouts..

There's no word on results of a scheduled MRI.
