CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Four days ago, Tyler Dorsey made the worst kept secret in high school basketball official: he announced his decommitment from Arizona in a statement.
On Tuesday, he spoke with the media at the NBPA Top 100 Camp for the first time since he made the decision to part ways with the Wildcats.
“I thought that I jumped the gun a little bit and committed too early,” said Dorsey, who pledged to Sean Miller and company back in January. “I didn’t take any officials or unofficials. I just committed too early for me. I just felt that, for me, I had to take my time.”
Dorsey said that he’s currently talking to “every school that wants to recruit me” but that he’s planning on being patient this time around, taking his time to find a school that’s the right fit.
“It’s looking at the guard situation,” he said. “Who’s going to stay, who’s leaving, who are they recruiting in my class, the system and how they’re going to use me in it, my relationship with the coaching staff.”
“Every body is trying to get me on campus, but [I’ll do that] later, after I cut my list after the whole July season. I don’t have any plans for scheduling any visits.”
In other words, Dorsey’s willing to hear from anyone and everyone that’s interested in him, and given the fact that he’s rated as the No. 7 overall recruit in the Class of 2015 by Rivals.com, the list of coaches calling him is going to be long and include a lot of high-profile names. But the attention that he will receive gets exacerbated by the fact that the 2015 class does not have a huge number of high-profile guards, especially when you consider that players like Charles Matthews, Luke Kennard, Malachi Richardson and Justin Simon have all already committed.
A lot of teams are going to be looking for back court firepower, making Dorsey one of the biggest prizes in the country.
What can Dorsey do as a player? He’s a big-time scorer that can score at all three levels. He rebounds the ball well for his size and he can make plays off the dribble. The question for Dorsey is what position he will play down the road. He wants to be a point guard, and he has the handle and the playmaking ability to do so, but he may actually be more effective off the ball as his first instinct is to score.
Dorsey said that he doesn’t have a list and that Stanford, Cal, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, Georgetown, Louisville, and Florida have all reached out, but “there’s much more I’m forgetting right now”.
