Miami landed another top playmaker this weekend, following the commitment of Ft. Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas wide receiver Phil Dorsett.
"I have commiited to Miami," Dorsett stated Sunday afternoon. "I actually committed to (head coach) Randy Shannon about a week ago, but I announced it last night in front of my family and some friends. We had a little celebration gathering to let everyone know."
"Coach Shannon was very excited when I told him the news," he continued. "He told me I could play any of the three receiver spots for them. I have a chance to play as a freshman, depending on how hard I want to work to earn a spot."
For Dorsett, the commitment to play for Miami is a dream come true, as he is a life-long Hurricane fan.
"Miami was always the place I wanted to be, and I've rooted for them all my life," he explained. "Once my family and I met with Coach Shannon, and talked to him, we were all sold that there was nowhere better for me to be than at Miami."
"Miami is a great school academically, and that means everything to me and my family," he stressed. "The football program is very close to getting back to where they have been in the past, and I want to be a part of that. I would say North Carolina and Ohio State were also in consideration, but it was pretty much always Miami. I couldn't be happier to be part of the 'Canes."
As a junior, Dorsett caught 30 passes for 594 yards, and scored 10 touchdowns. He was named to the third team All-State, in the 5A classification.
