"Our season is over – as far as state playoffs – the week before that and I wanted to see [UNC] play against Miami," Dorsey said.
Dorsey, a 6-foot-8, 255-pound defensive end from Mississippi Gulf Coast CC, has only one other official trip scheduled – Mississippi on Oct. 10 (versus Alabama). He isn't even sure which schools will get his remaining three official visits.
"Every school is talking about official visits – everybody I've talked to," Dorsey said.
The open race for Dorsey's final three official trips could be attributed to his lack of favorite schools.
"I'm just taking it day-by-day to be honest," Dorsey said. "I don't have a top five. I'm not leaning towards anyone. I'm not leaning towards a conference or anything. I'm just taking it day-by-day and my inner circle and I are identifying the best situations for me and my family."
UNC secured an official visit from Dorsey because of its prior relationship and head coach's prestige.
"I like UNC," Dorsey said. "I liked UNC when I was in [high school]. When I was in high school, they were looking at me. I liked them then and I like them now.
"Coach [Butch] Davis is a cool guy. I grew up watching Miami and him when he was intimidating people with his defense."
Dorsey first heard from UNC during the summer when assistant coach Everett Withers reached out. Two years ago, Withers, who was then an assistant with Minnesota, recruited Dorsey out of Baltimore (Md.) Southwestern High School.
"[Withers] said they had an interest and it just started moving from there," Dorsey said.
Shortly thereafter, UNC extended Dorsey a scholarship offer and his contact with UNC shifted to John Blake, UNC's defensive line coach.
"[Blake] talks to me about a whole range of different things that we have in common," Dorsey said. "He's a real cool guy."
Additionally, Dorsey has had a couple of phone conversations with Davis.
Dorsey is on track to graduate from Mississippi Gulf Coast CC in December. He will enroll at his chosen school in January with two years of eligibly, plus a red-shirt season, available.
Dorsey plans to take all five of his official visits before making a verbal commitment.
