Reports: Kuran Iverson to transfer to Rhode Island

Former Memphis Tigers basketball player Kuran Iverson will resurface at the University of Rhode Island according to reports.

Iverson was a top 50 national recruit in 2013, ranked right ahead of lottery picks like the Timberwolves guard Zach Lavine and just a few spots behind 76ers center Joel Embiid.

Iverson didn't fit in with the Tigers, and was dismissed from the team a few weeks ago. Iverson is from Connecticut, and will be playing closer to home. He'll be eligible for the Spring 2016 semester, and will have two and a half years of eligibility in total.
