I just assume that if that's indeed the case, he would not be practicing with the team right now
From the Mean Green blog May 2012:
(When he was a JJ recruit for UNT)
"Odoh has some summer school classes he has to take to finish his two-year degree and qualify to play at the Division I level next year".
From the Advocate Sept./12
"As he works to finish his degree requirements at Hill Junior College in Texas, Odoh, a 6-foot-10, 230-pound center, has committed to LSU basketball as part of the 2013 recruiting class."
"Odoh will not play basketball this season, but plans to graduate from Hill in December and enroll at LSU the following month."
Therefore, he wasn't able to enroll at LSU in time for the start of the 2012/13 season, and since he did complete his 2 yr degree at the end of December, he could then enroll at LSU come January.
Exerpt from the NCAA eligibility rules: Eligibility for Practice.
