Five for Dorsey

Abilene (Tx) Cooper linebacker/safety Cordell Dorsey has picked up two offers in the last two days.

Washington State and Texas State have made their place alongside Baylor, Texas Tech and Oregon State on Cordell Dorsey's offer list.

Like Texas Tech, the Oregon State news arrived in a unique (and relieving) way, courtesy of Cooper head football coach Todd Moebes.

"Coach Moebes called me into his office, acting like I was in trouble," Dorsey recapped. "I went in, thinking, 'What'd I do?' He told me to sit down, said he had an officer on the phone. I was shaking... I picked up the phone, and it was the Oregon State coach letting me know they were offering me."

Dorsey laughed.

"It was the same kind of stunt he pulled with Texas Tech. My heart was pounding. One of these days I'm really going to be in trouble and think it's an offer."

The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder admitted the offers are pouring in earlier and quicker than he expected.

"It's amazing. It's a God blessing. Everyone doesn't have this opportunity. I'm loving every day I wake up seeing that I have a shot in life. I'm loving every offer and treating everyone the same so every school gets the same amount of love."

Dorsey has made two junior day visits this spring, the first to Baylor Feb. 2 and Texas' second junior day Feb. 23.

Baylor offered immediately after. Texas, on the other hand, has not offered, but is certainly showing increased interest.

"I went to their junior day with my parents and [teammate/Longhorn commitment] Lorenze Joe. I loved it. They said they need linebackers and I am one they're definitely evaluating. They'll be by our spring practices to watch me."

So will several other major programs, like LSU, Alabama, Oregon and Florida State.

Dorsey eagerly awaits his chance to showcase his abilities, and will be competing in the Nike Football Training Camp April 7 at Allen (Tx) High School.
