Former Michigan recruit Demar Dorsey adjusts to community college life, still wants to play for Wolverines

By Staff

Demar Dorsey, at one time of the top recruits in the nation and once signed to a letter of intent to play football at Michigan, is thriving at Grand Rapids Community College, The Detroit News reports.

Dorsey, a defensive back, says a little tough love helped him open up and accept his role at the community college after Michigan denied his entrance to the university in 2010.

He hasn't given up on Michigan, the News reports.

"I'm in the same state!" Dorsey said. "Why would you miss out on your best shot in the state? C'mon, Brady Hoke!"

I hope he can eventually come here, but the odds are probably against it. His grades would need to be good enough to be able to get the transfer approved for one thing. And the article really doesn't say much about that. Talent-wise, I'd say he's very good and could potentially help out Michigan. But the coaches have to weigh the risk of bringing in a guy for only 2 years and hope that he can make an immediate impact. If he can't, then that's a position on the roster that's taken up for 2 years that they could have used for a 4+ year recruit out of high school. Dorsey talked about potentially walking on, but I'd be amazed if he could swing that financially with out of state tuition. Whatever happens, I wish him the best of luck.

Give him another chance!!!!!!!!!!! Would be a great story. And if he turned a new leaf, he'd be a huge asset to Michigan. GO BLUE!!!!!

Unless Demar is taking Calculus classes or making sure he is taking any other courses that will directly transfer over to Michigan, he's a long shot at best. I am glad that he still wants to be a Wolverine, I wish him the best of luck.
