Dorman recruiting for A&M

A&M commit Tommy Dorman was a huge pickup for the Aggies. Now he's working to make sure other top prospects join him. Aggie Websider's David Sandhop caught up with Dorman to find out his plans for this weekend's "Game Night" camp in College Station.

When Texas A&M received a commitment in the spring from Birdville four-star quarterback Tommy Dorman, they not only secured one of the top dual threat quarterbacks in the nation for the class of 2008, but they also picked up a an extra recruiter.

"A&M has put together a very good class, and I'm just trying help where I can and talk to some players that are still thinking about joining us," Dorman said. "We're going to do some good things at A&M and I'm letting people know about it."

One prospect in particular that Dorman has called is Jeff Fuller, the four-star receiver from McKinney. Dorman hopes to work with Fuller and develop some chemistry on the field with the big, athletic playmaker today at Texas A&M's Game Night Camp.

"I've talked to Jeff for about 10-15 minutes, just introducing myself and getting to know him," Dorman said. "I've done some research on him, and he said he's kept up with me and is looking forward to working out with me this weekend at A&M."

Dorman has also talked with fellow A&M commit Josh Ayers and has been trying to get in touch with Desoto four-star running back Cyrus Gray. When he's not on the phones, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound signal caller is diligently preparing for his upcoming senior season.

"I go through a two hour early morning workout working on my strength and conditioning," Dorman said. "Afterward, I get with our receivers and I throw a lot to those guys trying to get our timing down. We also played a lot of 7-on-7 tournaments this summer."

And that will be important if Dorman and his Birdville teammates want to be successful in 2007.

"We're going to be very young. All of our receivers except one will be new," Dorman said. "They are talented, but young. Our running backs will be back and we have some other veterans ready to step up so I'm confident we'll have a good team."

But for now, Dorman is focused on the Teas A&M Game Night Camp and working out with fellow commitments and potential future commitments. But according to Dorman, the camp isn't just about football and drills.

"From what I understand, this isn't just a football camp," Dorman said. "There's some down time planned for us to play some volleyball, swim at the Student Rec Center, and hang out together. I see it as a chance to bond with my future teammates."
