Elliot Williams cleared, Eloy Vargas to Kentucky?

They lost Latavious Williams. They lost Martin Ngaloro. Hell, they lost 2008.

Today, we finally got some good news for the University of Memphis.

Elliot Williams, the former McDonald's all-american who played his freshman season at Duke, was granted a waiver by the NCAA allowing him to play this season. Williams transferred to his hometown school to be closer to his mother, who is battling cancer.

With Williams, Memphis gets an athletic wing that can really get out and defend. By the end of last season, he had also blossomed into an effective slasher on the offensive end.

In other news, Jeff Goodman is currently reporting that Eloy Vargas, who Billy Donovan said could miss this season due to academics, is currently considering transferring and right now is on the Kentucky campus.
