Washington lands 2014 commitment from Donaven Dorsey

Lorenzo Romar has been hard-at-work, putting together a Class of 2014 so far in the month of July. Last week Tristian Etienne became the first member of the incoming class for the fall of 2014, and on Monday night, the Huskies added another forward, getting a verbal commitment from three-star small forward Donaven Dorsey (Timberline High/Lacey, Wash.).

The 6-foot-7 Dorsey picked his home-state Huskies over Washington State, Gonzaga, Oregon State and Portland State.

“It’s a big relief,” Dorsey told Meg Wochnick of The Olympian on Monday night. “I’m very excited to become a Dawg.

“That’s where my parents would like me to go and that’s where I want to go.”

As a junior, Dorsey scored 21 points per game while also averaging nine boards, four assists and two steals per contest. According to Wochnick, Dorsey was a priority for Washington, as Romar was present for many of Timberline High’s games this past season.

“I can go to him for anything, not even regarding basketball,” Dorsey added. “Coach Romar played in the NBA, the highest level, and he knows what he’s talking about.”

This is the Huskies second commitment in the past six days. Etienne, the 6-foot-10 British Columbia native, gave his verbal commitment to Romar on the Fourth of July.

Dorsey was listed as the No. 106 overall player in the Class of 2014 by Rivals.
