Report: Memphis transfer Dominic Woodson to enroll at Tennessee

Thursday August 21st, 2014

Former Memphis forward Dominic Woodson appears to be enrolled at Tennessee, according to a tweet from L. Jason Smith of the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Memphis announced last week that Woodson was transferring after one season with the program.

According to's Gary Parrish, the staff at Memphis will tell the NCAA that Woodson’s scholarship was not renewed and therefore that he could be eligible at Tennessee this season because of a run-off waiver. That type of waiver allows relief for players who were "run-off" by their previous schools for reasons out of their control.
