NBPA: Dorsey discusses next step

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Just a few days after parting ways with Arizona, Tyler Dorsey discussed the next step in his recruitment with Scout.com at the NBPA Top 100 Camp.

Tyler Dorsey has had a hectic few days.

Over the weekend Dorsey, a talented shooting guard out of Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, backed off his initial commitment to Arizona. Since the news broke, his phone has been quite busy.

"I just got calls from everywhere," Dorsey told Scout.com. "I have a list of schools that called me a day after -- Stanford, Cal, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, Georgetown, Louisville, Kansas, Florida and Tulsa. There were many more."

"It's a lot to take in right now," the 6-foot-5 guard added. "I'm just trying to build back my relationships with all the coaches and trying to see who is going to heavily recruit me."

It's obviously too early for Dorsey to have favorites or to even have visit dates. He said he's just taking it all in and examining the new schools recruiting him.

"Right now my plan is to open up to everybody," he said. "It doesn't matter if it's west coast or east coast. I'm willing to go anywhere. Right now I'm just taking time."

"With Arizona, I just committed too fast for me," Dorsey added. "I don't feel like I weighed my options. I didn't take any officials or unofficials. I think I jumped the gun too quick."

When will Dorsey take visits?

"Probably after AAU in July I'll have everything set," he said.

NBPA Top 100 Camp began on Wednesday and Dorsey started thigns off with a solid outing, scoring 18 points on 7-for-10 shooting, including 3-for-3 from behind the three-point arc.

"I felt like I played good," Dorsey said. "Our team didn't win the game. I always want to win at the end of the day, but I felt like I played pretty well. My shot was falling. I was getting my teammates involved. It was flowing for the first game out here."

A four-star prospect, Dorsey is currently ranked No. 24 overall in the 2015 recruiting class.
