Tiger Basketball Gets Early Present from NCAA/Simpkins Eligible

Forward Matt Simpkins is finally ready to play for the Memphis Tigers Basketball team.

The NCAA Clearinghouse authorized him to begin practice Friday.

He's had to sit out of practice since October 30th while the NCAA approved his grades from Prep School in North Carolina. 

The 6'9", 215 pound Simpkins averaged 17-points, more than 11-rebounds and 5 blocks for the Patterson School last season, helping lead that team to a 32-2 record.

The U of M is still waiting on Clearance for 6'11" Freshman Angel Garcia.
