Former CA reporter Gary Parrish reports on CBS Sportsline: Reserves Kareem Cooper and Tre'Von Willis, each caught in a numbers game, are on the verge of transferring from Memphis, sources close to the situation have told CBS SportsLine.com.

According to the sources, Cooper (a sophomore from Washington D.C.) and Willis (a freshman from Fresno, Calif.) are on track to leave with their eligibility intact, and they intend to secure more playing time with a lesser program after being bit players under John Calipari.

One source said neither student-athlete has picked a future college, adding Cooper is "wide open" while stating Willis will "likely transfer out west."

Cooper will have two years of eligibility remaining. Willis will have three.
