Dorsey's surprised by early offers

Travaris Dorsey camped at Florida Friday night and he received some praise from Will Muschamp as soon as the camp was over. That praise led to an offer for this 2014 offensive lineman and the early interest is surprising to this junior.

"As soon the camp ended, Coach [Will] Muschamp came over to talk to me and told me that he liked my game, he liked how I did at camp, and that he had heard good things about me," Travaris Dorsey told Scout.

Dorsey's performance was impressive enough to get an offer from the Gators three days later.

"Coach Muschamp told me the offer was coming on Monday after the camp and did. I am surprised by the offer because I just did not expect big schools to offer me this early. I thought I did well at the camp, but I didn't think I would get an offer."

He liked what he saw in Gainesville.

"Florida is a big-time school and they have a nice campus, their team works hard, they have a good academic program, and they are just an all-around good school. I liked the facilities and stuff I saw too."

This is offer no. two for the 6-foot-3, 297 pound offensive guard out of Jacksonville (Fla.) Raines.

North Carolina offered him earlier this summer after he had a strong camp performance there too.

Who could be next?

"Florida State and Miami were other schools I planed to camp at this summer, but I wasn't able too, so I will camp there next year.

"I saw coaches from Florida State, Penn State, Virginia, South Florida, Ole Miss, and Alabama down in the spring looking at me too, so I think they are interested in me.

"I am not sure who else is going to offer, but I am starting to receive some interest now."

An in-state school captured Dorsey's attention when he was in fourth grade and he has liked them since.

"FSU was the school I liked growing up. I really don't know why, but I just started watching them on television, I liked how they played, and I have been following them since then."

He has interest in plenty of other schools too. Florida, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Texas are some he listed.

Dorsey plans to take his time and wait for his senior year before he commits to a school.
