Memphis has made very clear its interest in joining the Big 12.
One of the country's biggest celebrities is now publicly in support of a potential move for the Tigers.
Justin Timberlake, a Memphis, Tenn. native and a minority owner of the Memphis Grizzlies, publicly advocated for a move on Twitter earlier this evening.
"Let's make this happen," he wrote.

Does Memphis to the Big 12 make sense? Many believe it does.
