Dorsey-Walker is Attracting Interest

One of the top players in the state of Michigan's 2012 class recently took a visit to check out the Michigan Wolverines.

Recently there has been a great run of players at Detroit (MI) Pershing High School. The Doughboys have been one of the best teams in Michigan, and this year is expected to be no different despite the departure of Keith Appling to Michigan State. The biggest reason why people have big hopes for Pershing is because of starting shooting guard Sherron Dorsey-Walker.

Last year Dorsey-Walker played the role of supporting cast behind Appling, but this is his year to show the type of player that he can be as the go to scorer.

"Out of myself I expect leadership, to compete on the court, and doing anything I can to make my team better," said Dorsey-Walker. "I was the go to guy in AAU, and for other teams. It is just basketball. I know this is just my chance."

Even though he hasn't had a chance to shine completely on the high school scene, he has shown his stuff on the AAU circuit. Because of that he has a long list of offers.

"I have offers from Indiana, Baylor, Michigan, Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Dayton, Oakland, and Fairfield," said Dorsey-Walker.

Dorsey-Walker has been on several unofficial visits to different campuses, but his most recent one was to the nearby University of Michigan where he saw the Wolverines season opener.

"I went to Michigan for their game against South Carolina Upstate," said Dorsey-Walker. "It was a good visit. I got to talk to the coaches and they won in a blowout."

After watching the game Dorsey-Walker had a chance to meet with Head Coach John Beilein, and feels that he could fit in well with the system that Michigan runs.

"I think it is a good system for me and I could play either the one or the two," Dorsey Walker explained.

While Dorsey-Walker did enjoy his trip to Michigan, he currently has no leaders and no timetable for a decision. He feels he wants to get to know everything he can before making any kind of decision.

When asked what he will be looking for when it does come time to select a school, Dorsey-Walker said, "I am looking for a place where I can make the school better and they can make me better. Also I am looking for a good academic school."
