U of L 'in the mix' for '15 guard Dorsey

One of the top prospects nationally in the Class of 2015, Tyler Dorsey holds an offer from the University of Louisville and is in constant contact with the Cardinals' staff. Cardinal Authority talked to Dorsey about his recruiting process.

Tyler Dorsey proved time and again this spring and summer that he's one of the elite prospects nationally in the Class of 2015.

The 6-foot-4, 175-pound five-star guard is from Bellflower, Calif., St. John Bosco High School already had a bunch of offers and picked up more after his strong play in Las Vegas last week, including one from Duke.

But Dorsey said one school he's "stayed in strong" contact with and is "building a good relationship" is the University of Louisville.

"Right now, it just started for me," Dorsey said. "It's early right now and just weighing my options. There are a lot of schools.

"But Louisville is one, they are really in contact."

Dorsey, who holds an offer from the Cardinals, said he has been speaking a lot with assistant coach Wyking Jones.

"It's top-level program every year and contending for the national championship," Dorsey said. "I love that. They get players to the next level and win. I want to keep getting to know them, and coach (Rick) Pitino."

Dorsey also holds offers from Connecticut, Arizona, USC, UCLA, Washington, California and Arizona State among others.

"I don't have any favorites right now," Dorsey said. "But I like Louisville a lot. They offered me last season after coach (Wyking) Jones came out to see me.

Dorsey went for 30 on the first night of the Fab 48 in Vegas, against Mo Williams Academy (Emmanuel Mudiay and Malik Newman) and said he felt like he proved that his game has improved.

"All I was doing was in the gym, working on my game," Dorsey said. "That gets you real better. I worked out with some pros and learned from them.

"It's been great for me. I hope the coaches see I am getting better."
