Looking for a Guarantee

"I haven't began thinking about the whole recruiting process," Adren Dorsey said. "Right now I'm in school and playing football, so I'm not really thinking about all that yet." The latest school to jump on the Dorsey bandwagon is West Virginia, where his distant cousin is wide receiver coach Tony Dews. "He's been recruiting me, which is pretty cool. I like talking with him..."

Adren Dorsey, the 6-foot-2, 285-pound three-star defensive tackle from John Tyler High School in Tyler, Texas, says he still isn't anywhere near narrowing down his choices.

Dorsey, ranked the No. 29 defensive tackle in the country by Scout.com, claims to have 10 scholarship offers, including rides from favorites West Virginia, Texas A&M, Texas, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Arkansas. "I haven't began thinking about the whole recruiting process," Dorsey said. "Right now I'm in school and playing football, so I'm not really thinking about all that yet."

The latest school to jump on the Dorsey bandwagon is West Virginia, where his distant cousin is wide receiver coach Tony Dews. "He's been recruiting me, which is pretty cool," he said. "I like talking with him and he's just telling me that they are doing some big things there and that they are putting together a great recruiting class for next year and it's just gonna be getting better.

"West Virginia has been recruiting me a lot, but it's hard to say who's recruiting me the hardest," Dorsey said. "They all call when they can and send lots of mail."

Dorsey says he'll start setting up some visits in late October, but won't make a final decision until Signing Day. "I really don't want my visits getting in the way of my team, so I'm gonna wait to set them up."

Although the Aggies are under three hours away and the Longhorns are just under four, he says he hasn't had a chance to attend any games yet, but has been following them closely. "Both A&M and Texas are looking pretty good," he said.

"Texas had a few close games, but they were able to pull it out. They proved they were more experienced and stepped it up in a close game and that's what you like to see."

While the in-state schools have been doing well, Dorsey admits that Oklahoma is the team that has impressed him the most. "They are looking really good," he said. "I didn't expect them to do as good as they are so that's surprising."

Amongst Dorsey's other offers are Baylor, TCU and Tulsa.

"I'd love to start my freshman year," Dorsey said. "If a school could guarantee me that then that would be great. That's what I'm looking for."

Tyler is off to a 1-2 start and Dorsey has 21 tackles so far.

He reports a 3.5 core GPA and an 18 ACT, which he is retaking in October.
