Dodson is enrolled in the school and is expected to become eligible after sitting out the spring and fall semesters. He will be allowed to practice with the team.
The 6-foot-7 Dodson averaged 6 points and 2.5 rebounds in 14.5 minutes last season as a sophomore at Kentucky, making a team-high 50 3-pointers. Wildcats coach John Calipari announced in August that he would not play for the team this season.
The Greenbelt, Md., native spent his freshman season at Miami-Dade Community College.
