Tyler Dorsey Is Killin’ It, Still Considering Six Schools
In case you missed it, Tyler Dorsey is killin’ it.
The 6-foot-4 Dorsey out of Los Angeles (CA) Marantha High scored 21 of his 49 points in the fourth quarter on Saturday when Maranatha beat Centennial, 71-59.
The former Arizona commit is averaging 35 points, 11 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.5 steals on the season. He has seven 40-point games and is averaging 40.2 points in his last nine games — all in 2015. In his last nine he’s gone for 40, 41, 36, 44, 42, 27, 43, 40 and 49 points.
Dorsey is now considering UConn, Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Kansas and Oregon, and his father said all schools are in the mix.
“The schools are all even,” Jerrid Dorsey told SNY.tv Saturday. “We will continue to watch the teams play. We love all these coaches.
“He already took his officials to all five schools [except UConn] and it’s more a matter of studying each situation,” Jerrid said.
As we previously reported, UConn is back in the mix after getting cut from Dorsey’s list and head coach Kevin Ollie and assistant Ricky Moore recently visited with Dorsey.
“Ollie said he loves the way Tyler plays,” Jerrid said. “He has a high motor and plays at both ends of the floor.”
