Dorsey still has work to be done

LSU picked up a commitment from the fourth rated defensive tackle prospect in the country back in March in Glenn Dorsey. <br><br> The six-foot-three, 285-pound monster has some work to do in the classroom before he will be a full academic qualifier and he spent the summer taking steps towards attaining that goal.

"I took English I again from my freshman year and made an 'A' in it but I am still not sure about my core," Dorsey told Tiger Rag.  "But I do have an 18 on the ACT. They basically told me if I make 'A's and 'B's this year that I would be good to play next year."

 

Dorsey said that despite his early pledge to the Tigers coaches are still trying to get him to keep an open mind throughout the recruiting process.

 

"I told them I'm going to LSU but they keep calling and writing letters," he said. "It's every day of every week. They come from Oklahoma State, Alabama, Oklahoma, Mississippi State, Michigan State and Michigan. Just a lot of schools keep calling."

 

Has the pressure he is getting from other colleges and coaches affected his intentions of signing with the Tigers in February?

 

"As of now I am firmly committed to LSU," said Dorsey. "I really don't know what it would take for me to change my mind but it would have to really entice me. But as of now I'm set on where I want to go."

 

If Dorsey needs any positive reinforcement at all then he will get it on Aug. 30 when he is scheduled to attend LSU's season opener with UL-Monroe at Tiger Stadium. A packed house at Death Valley can be one of the best recruiting tools in the country and Dorsey agrees.

"I'll probably take my parents with me," he said. "Last year I was in shock standing on the sidelines. That place is crazy."
