Dority Has Foreman Going Strong

Lavonte Dority raised his play this year. The talented 2010 prospect is making improvements on the court and high major coaches are taking interest.

Lavonte Dority, a product of Chicago (Ill.) Foreman, is pleased with how his junior campaign is shaping up.

"This year we surprised a lot of people," Dority, a three-star prospect on, said. "We came out real strong this year."

"We made it to the final four of the city playoffs, so that was pretty big for us," he continued. "Then there was a CPS tournament and we made it to the championship game of that. We've had a pretty good run so far and we still aren't finished."

The 6-foot, 185-pound point guard said he's become a better leader and is trying to bring toughness to the table every time he hits the floor.

"I've been playing real strong," Dority said. "I've been scoring and basically just being a leader, which is something that I've been working on. Basically I just play hard and I'm scrappy on defense. I just come out with toughness and do what my team needs from their point guard."

A handful of college coaches have been at recent games including Ohio State, Marquette and Western Michigan. To go with interest from them he's also hearing from Indiana, Baylor, New Mexico, Indiana and Kentucky.

"It's going real well right about now," he said of his recruitment. "Coaches have been calling a lot. Things are going real well. I'm starting to get a feel for who wants me. I know a lot of different people are calling right now."

Following the season, Dority said he wants to take a few college visits, particularly he'd like to head south to see a campus in Texas.

"I want to go check out Baylor and see how it is down there," Dority said. "I've never been to Texas and they are recruiting me hard so I'd like to go down there and see them."

Dority said he's hoping to have a college decision by July.
