Memphis has added transfer Calvin Godfrey to help bolster an already-talented front line, multiple sources told ESPN.

The 6-foot-7 Godfrey began his career at Iowa State before being dismissed for marijuana possession. He averaged 13.1 points and 8.8 rebounds last season at Southern -- and will be eligible this season due to Southern being ruled ineligible for the postseason due to poor APR scores.

"He is a high-major talent," one coach told ESPN.

UConn, according to sources, was interested in bringing Godfrey on board -- but the defending national champs wound up passing due to red flags. LSU also would not accept Godfrey.

Godfrey will add depth to a front line that already includes Shaq Goodwin and Austin Nichols.
