Lauderdale Lakes, Fla. - With his 6' frame and 4.3 speed, Florida Gator Commitment Demar Dorsey is the textbook definition "upside" recruit.

Lauderdale Lakes, Fla. - Demar Dorsey is a textbook definition of the upside recruit. His athleticism is as strong as anyone in the entire country right now with his size and speed at the defensive back position. Coaches love players that have his size (6-0/175) and can run like the wind. 

Physically, Dorsey has it all. His athleticism exceeds his football skill right now. Which is when the term "upside" starts getting tossed around.

It can be a little frustrating to watch him on defense when he's at safety, because Boyd Anderson tends to play him back by himself, 15 yards off the line of scrimmage. There will be entire series when he doesn't even come into the frame of the play.

When he does enter the fray, he can be a little sloppy in his technique causing him to miss a lot of tackles. He ducks his head, doesn't breakdown correctly and lunges late at a ball carrier. 

Against Lakeland he moved to corner most of the game. With his size and speed, he was excellent in coverage when he was locked on one man. It was when Lakeland ran the ball his direction that he struggled to get off blocks, and the Dreadnaughts had a lot of success running wide to his side.

On special teams, we're talking about a completely different player. With the ball in his hands on punt and kick returns, Dorsey's natural ability takes over, and he becomes the player that can score every time he touches the ball. His first step in his acceleration is unmatched, and he runs with a fearlessness and confidence that can elude him at times on defense.

It's these flashes of brilliance that make him such a tantalizing prospect for the Florida Gators. If Dorsey's defensive instincts and technique match his athleticism; he'll end up being one of those college players that fans look back and say "how the heck was he not rated five stars?"
