UM Takes New Angle with Dorsey-Walker

A new possibility at Michigan has Sherron Dorsey-Walker smiling about the Maize & Blue, but is it enough to give them the definitive edge in his recruitment?

Michigan's pursuit of a point guard to go along with incoming freshman Trey Burke had been focused solely on class of 2013 options… until yesterday.  A bit of a twist emerged in the form of Detroit Pershing combo guard, Sherron Dorsey-Walker.  During his latest visit to Ann Arbor yesterday he received some very appealing news.

"It went good," said Dorsey Walker of his time on Michigan's campus.  "They want me to play the one there… a Darius (Morris) replacement.  That's how I want to do it."

The change definitely gives Michigan yet another chip to play against a scholarship field that also consists of Florida State, Iowa State, Indiana, Minnesota, Baylor, Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Central Michigan, and Oakland.  To date there hasn't been much separation between the schools in the race for the Motor City standout's services.

 "It is about the same (as it has been for months)…  I have no school that stands out." Dorsey-Walker reported.

That public neutrality won't last long, though.  The 6-5, 185-pounder hopes to arrive at a decision fairly soon.

 "I told (Michigan), after July (I'll select a school)," he said.

The Wolverines have always been strong contenders in the Pershing star's recruitment.  Their decision to put the ball in his hands could enhance their position even more.

 "I like their style of play," Dorsey Walker said.  "I love their coaches.  I love their campus too.  It is a comfortable place to be at.  I really don't have that many questions about them."

For that matter, neither does his family… especially dad.

 "My dad went up there with me… he loves the school," Dorsey-Walker stated.  "He likes it up there."

Despite those strong feelings, the Michigan coaching staff still has some work to do to secure a pledge.  The Motor City star insists that his long list of suitors will have the same opportunity to prove to him that their school is the place for him to be.

"(I want to go) where I trust my coaches that I'll play for, where I can get better, and I can help the school get better," he said. I'm going to (visit) Iowa State this weekend and that's it before July."
