Lawrence, KS (Sports Network) - Memphis power forward Tarik Black will transfer to Kansas and will be eligible to play for the Jayhawks for the 2013-14 season.

Black, who graduated from Memphis with a bachelor's degree in organizational leadership, will have one year of eligibility to play at Kansas.

The 6-foot-9, 245-pound forward started five of 32 games played for Memphis last season and averaged 8.1 points and 4.8 rebounds. His 58.9 field goal percentage was second-best on the team. He had 20 blocked shots and 22 steals on a team that went 31-5 overall last season, including 16-0 in Conference USA play.

"Tarik has played in a ton of big games and certainly has had good experience at Memphis," Kansas coach Bill Self said. "He's used to winning and can help us in both of our big positions. He can play the four and the five and we look forward to moving him around. He'll be an impact player that certainly changes the outlook of our team and makes us more versatile."

Over his college career, Black has averaged 9.3 points and 4.9 rebounds while starting 60 of the 102 games played at Memphis.
