Former Oregon guard Damyean Dotson, who was a star at Yates High School in Houston, will sign with the Houston Cougars basketball team, as reported by the Houston Chronicle:
Dotson on Wednesday will sign a national letter of intent to play at the University of Houston, exactly one year and one day after authorities announced they would not press charges against Dotson, who was accused of assaulting a female student at an off-campus party.
Dotson, a two-year starter at Oregon, and teammates Brandon Austin and Dominic Artis were dismissed from the basketball team May 9 for what the school ruled sexual misconduct. Dotson and the two others were banned from the Eugene campus for a minimum of four years.
“A lot of people don’t get a second chance,” Dotson told the Chronicle and Fox26 in his first public comments since the incident occurred in March 2014. “They say one chance comes in a lifetime. To have a second chance, I can’t mess this up.”
In 2012, Dotson led Yates to the Class 4A state championship game and was the Chronicle’s All-Greater Houston player of the year. When he decided he wanted to return to college basketball, he chose UH over Fresno State, Texas A&M, Nevada and Southern.
Dotson is a 6’5″ guard and will be able to play immediately with two years of eligibility remaining. Click here for the full story.
