Adren Dorsey, the 6-foot-2, 285-pound three-star defensive tackle from John Tyler High School in Tyler, Texas, says he has over 10 scholarships and remains open.
"I haven't really been thinking about recruiting a lot," Dorsey said. "It just hasn't been a factor lately. I'll start thinking about things seriously in September. It's when the coaches can call you and I want to see who wants me the most and calls the most. That's when I'll start setting up my visits."
Dorsey, ranked No. 63 in the Southwest by Scout.com and the nation's No. 29 defensive tackle, said he favors Texas A&M, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Oklahoma State and that all five have offered. Previously Dorsey has said he favors the Aggies.
"I want to play for a successful program in a good environment, but distance doesn't matter."
Although Dorsey says distance doesn't matter, the Aggies are only two and half-hours from his house. Big-time rival Texas is about four hours away. "I went to A&M for their Game Night this summer and loved it," he said. "I liked everything about them. The campus is great and they have really good support. Also, the facilities there are really impressive. Texas and A&M are both pretty similar, but A&M definitely has better facilities."
Growing up, Dorsey admits that the Longhorns were his favorite school. "I loved them," he said. "I loved all the running backs they had and just watched them all the time. They always have an amazing team."
So who does Dorsey really favor? "I like A&M a lot, but I wouldn't say I like them more than anybody else."
The two Texas programs are the only schools that Dorsey has actually visited, but he says he'd really like to visit Oklahoma as well. "I don't really know too much about them," he said. "I know they have great tradition and I'd like to take a visit there and see what it's like."
Dorsey finished his junior season with 15 tackles and four sacks. Tyler High School opens their season against Texarkana on Aug. 31. "I'm quick off the ball and can read the plays," Dorsey said. "I know what my opponent is gonna do before he does it.
"One thing I need to work on is lowering my pad level. It gets a little high every now and then. I'd also like to deliver a more punishing blow."
Dorsey can bench 380, squat 600 and has a 27-inch vertical jump. He also says he can run the forty 4.8.
