Five-star recruit Dorsey reportedly won't be a Michigan Man in '10

Ever since Michigan landed Demar Dorsey on National Signing Day this past February, the question has been whether or not the five-star talent would actually make it to campus this fall and be a member of the football program.

Apparently, that question has been answered, and not in a positive way for the Wolverine faithful.

Speaking on WTKA radio Monday morning, Sam Webb — by way of MVictors — reports that Dorsey will not be on campus this fall, apparently robbing head coach Rich Rodriguez of a supremely talented athlete at a position of dire need.

There was some question in recent weeks and months as to whether Dorsey would qualify academically, although Webb did not come right out and state that’s the reason Dorsey will not be in Ann Arbor this year.

Webb also hinted that Dorsey could be moving on to another school, which would be a double kick in the groin for Rodriguez.

“What will be interesting to see is where he ends up in the aftermath. Because if he ends up at a JUCO then we know what the deals was-he wasn’t qualified. If he ends up Florida State/Louisville/Cincinnati, then he was qualified, Michigan just didn’t take him and of course that brings up the question as to why. We’ll have to wait and see on that.”

UM has yet to address Dorsey’s status — or non-status, as the case may be.

UPDATE 1:32 p.m. ET: According to a tweet from Dave Birkett of AnnArbor.com, Dorsey is qualified as far as grades are concerned and that Florida State is a possibility.

    Demar Dorsey “robbing head coach Rich Rodriguez of a supremely talented athlete at a position of dire need”?!?!? Wouldn’t be the first time Demar Dorsey was accused of robbing.

    Hahahaha @ ” Florida State is a possiblity”
    Any college in Florida would take him. The expectations in the sunshine state are as accountable as a french fry check list order at Burger King.

    I’m sorry but stories about DickRod getting kicked in the groin just make me smile for hours!!!! I’m guessing that screw the blue tradition, morals, and standards for bringing this oozing, lying, cheating scumbag doesn’t taste all that good right now. Prepare for yet another humiliating season of disappointments and ass whoppins.

    Any college in Florida would not take him. The Gators started to distance themselves from Dorsey when some of his past came out. In fact, the Gators yanked their scholarship to him and then he picked UM over FSU.

    I can’t believe something described as an inedible nutlike seed speak of integrity or cheating such as the Suck-Eyes. Maurice Clarrett, Beanie Well, Troy Smith. Let’s not talk about your dirty program. Just keep Terrell Prior’s family paid.
