Darnell Dodson lands at Southern Miss?

According to Dan Wolken and his tiny t-shirt, rumors are circulating that former Cat Darnell Dodson has landed at Southern Miss, the NCAA’s version of a half-way house.  Dodson, who was relieved of his duties as a Cat and later arrested in Lexington in the fall, follows in the footsteps of another highly rated former Kentucky shooter, Rashaad Carruth, in choosing to become a Golden Eagle.  If the reports are true, it would be his fourth college stop (Pitt and Miami Dade are the others) since leaving high school as a top-100 recruit.  He has two years of eligibility remaining and, more importantly, another chance at getting things back on the right track.

Update thirty seconds later:  Jeff Borzello is reporting this as done

    I hope the guy pulls it together. He seems to have the talent to be a solid contributor– especially at S Mis. Clean up your act and perfom. Good luck.

    I just got back in my Time Machine… I got news for you all. Darnell Dodson will appear on more posters than any UK player before or after him. Unfortunately, they will all be WANTED posters.

    We needed Dodson bad this year…he must have really been in Cals doghouse to be kicked off….would have added much needed depth, and he was a good shooter and slasher…oh well.

    I hope dodson puts it together and I think he can be a good shooter for Southern Miss. Also did anyone see this craigslist ad for a kentucky sports blogger? Is it someone that comments here b/c that would be hilarious. http://lexington.craigslist.org/wri/2165946768.html

    Isn’t Dodson about 45 years old now, With 47 D1 schools behind him?

    It reminds me of the career of former Mr. Basketball Elton Scott from Marion Co. Hope it works out for him, though he looks high in that pic

    This is true. I am in the USN and Darnell’s dad drives our bus and he confirmed. He said he has been working out with their team for some time and will play up his last year of eligibility next year with them.

    Had to share a flight with the Southern Miss basketball team after they lost to Marshall by 30 and their coach was ejected and they were upset to say the least. Good luck with that Darnell.
