MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Guard Elliot Williams has been granted a transfer waiver by the NCAA and is eligible to play for Memphis this coming season.
The school announced the approval in a news release Friday. Williams played his freshman season at Duke, where he started 12 games and averaged 4.2 points a game.
He is a Memphis native who has already enrolled in classes at Memphis. Williams has said he transferred to be closer to his sick mother.
