East Texas defensive tackle picking up offers

As recruiting starts to heat up certain players are starting to pick up large amounts of offers. East Texas recruit Adren Dorsey is one of those players who has a list of offers that is sure to make most players jealous. Stay with Texasprepinsider and Scout.com as we bring you updates of the best players in the state and the country.

East Texas stallion Adren Dorsey is just beginning to tap into his immense talent at the DT position. Playing tight end early in his prep career before moving to the offensive line and defensive line positions, make no mistake it is in fact defensive tackle where colleges are recruiting him. Keep in mind while most recruiting analysts nitpick this kid's game, ranking him in the bottom half of Texas Top 100 lists, Dorsey's upside makes him one of the top football prospects in the Lone Star State...

Holding scholarship offers from some of the who's who in big-time college football (i.e. "Baylor, Colorado, Louisiana Tech, LSU, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Rice, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, Tulsa, West Virginia") Scout.com caught up with Tyler DT Adren Dorsey to talk about his recruitment thus far...

Recruiting the Hardest: "Texas A&M and Oklahoma State."

He has a top two at this point in the process with one (Texas A&M) recruiting the dickens out of him and the other (Oklahoma State) not keeping in touch as much as the former here of late...

"I really like Texas A&M and Oklahoma State," Dorsey told Scout.com. "But I'm still really interested in West Virginia and Texas also," added the 6-foot-3, 285-pound blue chip.

Thoughts on Top Four Schools below...

"I really like Coach Jim Helduser," Dorsey on the Aggies said. "He's cool. And, when I went down to their junior day I just really liked a lot about them. Based on what I saw, there was a lot to like."

On the Cowboys: "I like their program, the opportunity to go in there and make an impact. Coach Joe Wickline is recruiting me. But I haven't really talked to him much."

Thoughts on Mountaineers: "One of my (distant) relatives coaches the running backs there. He wants me to play for them. But I don't know much about them right now."

On the Longhorns: "I hope it's not too late for me. I know their already close to filling up their (2008 recruiting) class."

Another team to watch out for?

"I like Nebraska too," Dorsey revealed. "Coach Jordan is recruiting me. But I'm just getting to know him."

For those schools not making Dorsey's early, early top five, don't fret. After all the 6-foot-3, 285-pound stallion told Scout.com, "I'm going to take all of my official visits and then wait until Signing Day to make my commitment."

Junior Stat Package (as a guard): "50-60 pancake blocks, no sacks allowed, 1 holding penalty, no false starts."

Junior Stat Package (in 7 games as a defensive tackle): "12 tackles, 4-5 sacks, 20+ pressures, 2 tipped passes."

Other notes to Consider...

Weight Room Numbers: "330 Bench, 295 Incline, 515 Squat, 300 Power Clean."

Accolades/Notes: "All East Texas as an offensive guard last year. This upcoming year, strictly defensive tackle."

Track-And-Field: "I compete in the discus. My best is 170 feet."

Academics: "3.3 GPA and I just took the ACT. It was a 17."
