Gopher Basketball Recruiting: Kevin Dorsey Signs Letter of Intent

Coach Pitino's first four star recruit at Minnesota brings energy to the point.

Andy Lyons

Another piece of the puzzle for Richard Pitino and Gopher Basketball recruiting has officially signed his letter of intent.  The four-star point guard from Maryland committed to the Gophers back in mid-July giving Richard Pitino his first verbal of the class and his first four-star recruit.

A talented offensive player who is potentially a dominant defensive guy.  I am very excited to see Dorsey and Jarvis Johnson together after a year or two of maturation and getting to know each other a little.

Height: 6'0"
Position: PG
Stars: 4
Ranking: Rivals #86 overall
Other Significant Offers: Auburn, Seton Hall, St. Johns
ESPN Eval: "Consummate energy giver from the point guard position. He's always in motion and makes a point to be an aggressive one on one defender. Should be able to impact defensively. Quick as they come and he's long-armed so he's unique at the point. Quick to the point where he's effortless and almost glides to different spots."

Dorsey is the highest ranked member of this 2015 class.  A kid with some defensive toughness and an offensive game too.  I have visions of Al Nolen with a jumpshot and ability to finish at the rim.  Absolutely love the backcourt recruits in this class and Dorsey is a huge reason why.

Amelia Rayno's comments on Dorsey:

Pitino's most highly rated recruit at Minnesota, the lightning-fast 5-11 point guard turned down his home-state Maryland and Nebraska. Dorsey, a four-star recruit who is ranked 86th overall in the class, should be able to step in immediately. With his speed and long wing span, he has the potential to be a difference-maker defensively.
