Dominic Woodson transferring out of the Memphis Tigers program

Memphis sophomore Dominic Woodson is transferring out of the Tigers basketball program, a source told CBSSports.com on Thursday afternoon.
The school subsequently announced the decision.
"Dominic is in good academic standing ... but he shared with me that he'd like a fresh start," said Memphis coach Josh Pastner. "We support Dominic and wish him all the best."
This development is surprising on one hand considering Pastner, just Wednesday, publicly complimented Woodson -- telling a group of reporters that the 6-foot-10 forward is better "talent-wise" than returning starters Austin Nichols and Shaq Goodwin.
"But it’s all about his attitude and being able to think positive," Pastner said.
On the other hand, this development isn't too surprising given that Woodson spent much of his freshman season either suspended or in Pastner's so-called doghouse, and Woodson was involved in a physical altercation with a football player earlier this summer.
Woodson is a former top-100 recruit.
He initially signed a letter of intent with Baylor.
Sources told CBSSports.com he'll likely enroll in a junior college.
