Dorsey commits to Minnesota

Kevin Dorsey didn't make it out of the first July evaluation period. The 6-foot guard committed to Minnesota on Saturday.

Heading into the July evaluation period the thought was that Kevin Dorsey, a top 100 point guard out of Fairfax (Va.) Paul VI, was a Minnesota lean.

On Saturday those suspicions were confirmed and the talented lead guard committed to Richard Pitino and his staff. Team Takeover coach Keith Stevens informed of the news.

"I think the biggest thing is style of play and the commitment and that they stayed consistent in his recruitment," Stevens said. "He’s followed him and had constant communication and everything."

Pitino trailed Dorsey throughout the first few days of the July evaluation period at the Victor Oladipo/Ty Lawson All-American Camp.

"Pitino made him a priority," Stevens said. "They grinded on him and built a strong relationship with him and his parents."

A good fit for Minnesota's, Dorsey brings toughness, speed and an aggressive style. Dorsey is good with the ball in his hands, knows how to use screen and roles and is an elite perimeter defender.

"I think it’ll be good with the style of play and ball screen stuff and the stuff that he’s good at," Stevens said.

A four-star recruit, Dorsey is regarded as the No. 9 point guard and the No. 78 overall prospect in the 2015 class.
