Former Reb Transfers to Memphis

Defensive lineman Jada Brown, who signed with Ole Miss last spring but left the team in August, has enrolled at Memphis State and practiced with the team Thursday. Brown (6-2, 270) was an all-city and all-metro player at Banneker High in College Park, Ga., and was recruited by, among others, Memphis, Clemson, Illinois, Indiana and Southern Miss.
''His high school coach called us and said he was interested in coming here,'' West said. ''We had recruited him so we said 'Yeah, if he wants to come here, we want him.' ''
Brown will have to sit out this season per NCAA guidelines regarding transfers.
