Junior college big Stan Simpson has arrived on the Memphis campus and will be cleared to practice as soon as he passes a physical, a source has told CBSSports.com.

An official announcement from the school is expected soon.

The 6-foot-10 forward was supposed to be on campus last week but his arrival was delayed because of unpaid fees at his junior college that prevented the school from releasing his official transcript to Memphis. Those fees are in the process of being handled, according to a source. Simpson took a train from Chicago late Wednesday and arrived in Memphis early this morning.

Simpson chose Memphis over Kansas and Connecticut last Spring.

He's expected to be a key reserve for the Tigers.

What a relief.  You never know if those JUCO guys are going to make it to campus until they actually get there.

Probably had to pawn his gun to pay the JUCO fees. Memphis with no weapon. I don't know.
