Report: Ex-Michigan five-star commit Demar Dorsey will play at Hawaii
It appears Demar Dorsey is going tropical.
The former Michigan football five-star defensive back signee will reportedly continue his college football career with coach Norm Chow at Hawaii, according to CBS college football writer Bruce Feldman.
Feldman reported that Dorsey will arrive at Hawaii in July and the school will have to petition for immediate eligibility this fall.

The Florida native signed a national letter of intent to play at Michigan for former coach Rich Rodriguez in 2010, but was later released from the scholarship that summer -- ending his Wolverine career before it ever officially began.
Considered a borderline qualifier out of high school, Dorsey -- a cousin of Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson -- was arrested three times as a youth, but was never convicted of a crime.
"The reasons behind that are really between the admissions office and this young man," Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said of Dorsey's release at the time. "That’s about all I can say about it."
If Dorsey ends up at Hawaii, he'll join another former five-star Michigan recruit, Justin Turner, who ended up as part of Hawaii's recruiting class this past winter.
