MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) - -

Memphis Tigers guard Rashawn "Pookie" Powell has decided not to transfer, and will remain with the team.

Josh Pastner confirmed the decision, telling FOX13 Sports that "Pookie is two feet in. He is on the caravan moving forward".

The 6-foot-1 point guard sat out the 2013-14 season due to academic issues, but is expected to contend for the starting point guard spot next fall.

Powell was a top-100 recruit coming out of Dr. Phillips High in Orlando, after averaging 28 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals as a senior.
