Mountaineers Land Pair of Commitments

BlueGoldNews.com has confirmed that a pair of Ohio players verbally committed to play football at West Virginia after Saturday afternoon's Gold-Blue spring game.

Mike Dorsey and Davion Rogers, both out of Warren G. Harding High School in Ohio, committed to the Mountaineers in conversations with the coaching staff after the Gold defeated the Blue 35-7 on Saturday afternoon.

Their head coach, Dan Dota, said the two had just told WVU head coach Bill Stewart about their intentions to play football in Morgantown.

"Both are very good leaders," Dota said. "All of our players look up to them."

The Warren G. Harding program produced current West Virginia safety Sidney Glover. Dota said Dorsey, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound athlete, isn't all that different.

"Dorsey is a big, physical player who reminds you of a Sidney Glover," Dota said. While Dorsey plays quarterback and safety for Warren G. Harding, the Mountaineer program had recruited him as a safety.

Rogers, a 6-foot-6, 200-pound linebacker, could potentially switch positions once he arrives on campus in Morgantown.

"He's that outside rusher type," Dota said. "He's long and he could grow into a defensive end."

While it's still relatively early in the recruiting calendar, Dota said West Virginia fans have little to worry about when it comes to whether the pair would renege on their verbals and decide to go elsewhere.

"Both are solid commitments," the head coach said. "They're the type of guys that, when they make a commitment, they'll stick with it."
