Kenneth Dotson, a highly regarded freshman defensive end from Houston Lamar, has reported to North Texas and is expected to join the Mean Green for practice in the next few days.
Dotson missed the opening two days of workouts with the team while meeting NCAA standards to join the program. He is expected to undergo his physical on Monday and should be on the field in time for Tuesday's practice.
A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed Dotson's arrival and the path he will follow to join UNT's practices to the Denton Record-Chronicle on Saturday afternoon.
Dotson was one of two members of UNT's 2019 recruiting class who was not with the team for the beginning of fall workouts. UNT is still without junior college defensive end David Sow.
Dotson is rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports and is expected to provide depth along UNT's defensive front as he develops early in his college career.
Dotson is ranked No. 100 among strong side defensive ends nationally and has the potential to develop into an impact player.
The Mean Green added Fullerton College defensive end Asher Frow over the summer. Frow was expected to join UNT's program as a blue shirt, a process that involves a player enrolling as a walk-on and then being given a scholarship that can be backdated to the next signing class.
A UNT spokesman confirmed that Frow is on campus and will join the team.
