Sherron Dorsey-Walker picked up a Michigan offer last October but most wiped him off the radar after Michigan landed a commitment from wing guard Nick Stauskas. The 2012 guard has played well this spring with the REACH Legends, lighting up the Mac Irvin Fire for over 30 points when we saw him play at Spiece, and is apparently back on the radar with a twist: the Michigan staff wants him to play point guard.
Dorsey-Walker recently took an unofficial visit to Michigan and we caught up with him to discuss his visit and his feelings on potentially playing the point guard position.
On the main schools recruiting him: Michigan, Baylor, Indiana, Florida State, Iowa State, Minnesota, Tennessee, Xavier, Temple, Dayton, Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Central Michigan and Oakland.
On which schools have offered: All of them have offered except for Tennessee and Temple.
On his visit to Michigan: Yes [I did visit]. It was good. I went around the campus… I’d say everything stood out about the campus. Everything was good. Good facilities and I got to see the practice facility.
On how it differed from previous trips to Ann Arbor: I had only been up there for games or football games before. I’ve never come up for a full unofficial visit to see the whole school.
On what the Michigan staff is telling him: They are trying to recruit me as a point guard. I’d be comfortable playing the point guard. They want me to be like Darius Morris, they showed me a lot of clips of the way Darius Morris played.
On whether he thinks he can play the one: Yeah I can, I’ve played on the ball in high school and I think I can play the one at the next level.
On his recent trip to Florida State: It went good. I went to the Elite Camp and got to tour their campus. It was good.
On what elements of his game he’s working to improve: Being able to take contact and be a better dribbler, ball handling.
On how he’s played this spring: I think I’ve played good. Some days I didn’t play so well. Some days I did.
On when he wants to make a decision: August.
On what other visits he has planned: I’m going to Iowa State this weekend and I might try to come back up to Michigan and play with their guys on the 30th.
On whether any schools stand out: I’m open right now. I don’t have any top group.
