Former Missouri guard Michael Dixon transfers to Memphis
Michael Dixon will start classes at Memphis on Thursday.
Dixon confirmed the news to ESPN.com on Wednesday night.
He'll start classes at Memphis on Thursday.
Dixon averaged 13.5 points per game as a junior during the 2011-12 season but was essentially dismissed from the program last year after he was accused of sexual assault for a second time by a second woman. The Kansas City native never faced criminal charges, which, a source told CBSSports.com, is among the reasons Memphis coach Josh Pastner feels comfortable enrolling him. A source added that Dixon will apply for a NCAA waiver to play immediately. It should be noted Dez Wells received a waiver under similar circumstances when he transferred from Xavier to Maryland.
Memphis is ranked 15th in the preseason Top 25 (and one).
The Tigers return three double-digit scorers from a 31-win team.
