Former Memphis forward Dominic Woodson gets a rebound during the Tigers' loss to SMU on Feb. 1 at Moody Coliseum in Dallas, Texas. Woodson's transfer to Tennessee is expected to be announced on Thursday.

After being released from his scholarship and given the right to transfer, former Memphis Tigers forward Dominic Woodson could become a member of the Tennessee men's basketball as early as Thursday, when an official university announcement is expected.

Following a search of the UT student directory around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dominic Woodson's name appeared after previously not showing up earlier in the day.

Woodson is expected to begin classes at UT on Thursday.

Since his transfer announcement on Aug. 14, Tennessee has shown interest in the 6-foot-10, 300-pound big man, who has expressed mutual interest in UT as well.
