2015 Dozier has early interest

P.J. Dozier had a strong spring and summer and his play on the court has led to plenty of high major interest.?

P.J. Dozier has already established himself as one of the top sophomore lead guards in the country.

Dozier, a 6-foot-3 guard out of Columbia (S.C.) Spring Valley, played with the Upward Stars on the spring and summer circuit.

"I think I played fairly decent coming back off a broken toe injury," Dozier told Scout.com. "Overall playing with the Upward Stars team was fun. It was a good experience."

"I just try to bring an all around game," Dozier added. "I try to distribute the ball and get my teammates involved, but also put the ball in the basket when I need a bucket."

As a freshman, Dozier averaged 15 points and tossed out six assists a game. His play during his freshman season and on the travel team circuit has Dozier reeling in high major interest.

According to Curt Wheeler, Dozier's AAU coach, some of the schools involved in his recruitment include Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, Virginia Tech, Kansas, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State and Kentucky.

"It's great," Dozier said of his recruitment. "It's a good experience. I haven't gotten to go on any visits or anything yet, but I'm looking forward to it."

Dozier is currently ranked among the top 25 players in the 2015 class.
