Memphis added a play-making guard to the fold for the 2014-15 season on Monday night as it was ruled that transfer guard Kedren Johnson was eligible for the upcoming season.
According to a report from Grant Milner of Memphis Roar, the Vanderbilt transfer will be able to play after missing the 2013-14 season due to suspension for a violation of school policy at the SEC school.
A 6-foot-4 junior, Johnson averaged 13.5 points, 3.6 assists and 3.5 rebounds during the 2012-13 season and he started all 33 games for the Commodores. Losing four senior guards from last season, Johnson gives Memphis some much needed experience so that Pookie Powell, redshirt freshman Markel Crawford, freshman guard Dominic Magee and junior college transfer Avery Woodson can adjust to the AAC.
A team with good frontcourt players like Memphis can all benefit from a guard who can get them the ball like Johnson and take some attention away from them.
This should help Memphis immediately this spring and it gives their inexperienced guards a chance to adjust.
