Safety commit helps ease Michigan's pain

Earlier today, Michigan suffered a little bit of a body blow when safety Sean Parker opted for Washington over the Wolverine and Southern Cals.

This afternoon, Michigan made up for that temporary secondary loss.

According to Andy Staples of, safety Demar Dorsey, who up until a week ago was a Florida commitment, is signing with Michigan.

Once Dorsey de-committed from Florida — or had his scholarship offer pulled by the school, depending on which version you believe — it was believed the defensive back was headed to Florida State.  Obviously, that wasn’t the case.

In addition to the aforementioned schools, Dorsey, who reportedly has been timed at 4.3 in the forty (coughcoughbullspitcoughcough), was also pursued by Tennessee and USC after his recruitment reopened.

    Cool, another speed player to play on the slick turf in October and November. Another square peg in a round hole move by Vince Lombardi.

    My guess is he lasts in Ann Arbor for 5 months.

    Demar Dorsey:
    6’1″, 180lbs.
    At the UA combine he ran a 4.31 then a 4.25 (hand timed)…so we’ll just assume he runs a 4.35.
    100m Dash = 10.53.
    Vertical Jump = 39.5″
    Broad Jump = 10’1”
    Yep. Another “speed player”. He’d be an above average-sized DB on Ohio State’s team (just checked) but likely with more speed. You wouldn’t take him?
