Florida transfer Isaiah Stokes will continue his career at Memphis, the Tigers announced Wednesday.

Stokes will sit out this season unless the NCAA grants him immediate eligibility.

The 6-foot-8, 270-pound Stokes played AAU ball for current Memphis coach Penny Hardaway.

"He's a veteran player that's physical, tough and has a great (basketball) IQ," Hardaway said in a news release.

Stokes redshirted his first season at Florida to recuperate from a torn ACL. He played in 26 games last season as a redshirt freshman and averaged 2.7 points and 1.0 rebounds.

Stokes is the younger brother of former Tennessee standout Jarnell Stokes, who was a second-round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
