HYATTSVILLE, Md. -- Class of 2015 point guard Kevin Dorsey, who is transferring from Paul VI (Fairfax, Va.), participated in the Victor Oladipo & Ty Lawson All-American Camp July 9-11. Here is a breakdown of this Maryland target.

Player: Kevin Dorsey
Height: 5-11
Pos.: PG
School: TBD
Year: 2015


Athleticism: Dorsey has an extra gear, shows good acceleration and has speed. He's not a big basketball player, and certainly not bulky, but he's strong enough -- and fearless going to the hoop.

Shooting: Dorsey's a little streaky from deep, but has worked hard on his shot, and it has to be respected. He's shown an ability to finish well in the lane.

Ball-handling: You're not likely to take the ball from Dorsey, though he does over dribble at times and can get hung up in traffic .

Passing: Despite being labeled a "score first" point guard, he has shown the ability to find open shooters on the break.

Defense: Dorsey's a maximum effort defender, and can really get up in an opponent's grill. He loves to challenge on the defensive end of the court.

Rebounding: Again, Dorsey's not going to make a living pounding the boards, but he'll do the dirty work when needed.

Intangibles: Though others on last year's Paul VI squad got more headlines, more often than not it was Dorsey who set the tone and made things happen. He's an absolute all-out warrior who thrives in the uptempo style of play.

Summary: Kevin Dorsey gets the most out of his ability, and that's all you can ask for from a player. He's an energy guy, a momentum changer and a defensive presence each time he hits the court. He does get a bit out of control at times, and he's clearly better with a faster pace, but there's no denying the intensity he brings to a program.
