Four-star Dorsey making plans

Four-star defensive end Wayne Dorsey could only watch as his Gulf Coast teammates knocked off previously No. 2 ranked East Mississippi 43-26 last Thursday.

The 6-foot-8, 255-pounder was sidelined with a grade one sprained MCL in his right knee but celebrated just the same after the big victory.

"To see my teammates get it done without me, I'm really happy," Dorsey said. "I'm sure we will probably see them again in the playoffs. We feel like the sky is the limit going into Pearl River. We can be as good as we want to be. Coach preaches that all the time if we just be ourselves and do everything that we are supposed to do."

Dorsey injured his knee in the Bulldogs 63-9 win over Itawamba in week two and has missed the past two games. He is expected back tonight when No. 9 Gulf Coast (3-1) hosts undefeated and third ranked Pearl River.

Not much has changed on the recruiting front for the Baltimore native. He has scholarship offers from Iowa State, Michigan, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Oklahoma State, South Florida, Southern Miss, Tennessee and Tulsa.

Dorsey has his focus set on his sophomore season and admits he has not been concentrating too much on recruiting.
