Michigan Lands Demar Dorsey

Do a little dance! Dorsey to Michigan.

Andy Staples reported it first over at SI, and after an excessively long wait for his press conference, the official announcement has been made: Demar Dorsey has committed to Michigan.

Dorsey is Rivals.com’s #13 safety and the #162 overall prospect. ESPN is very high on Dorsey, rating him as a five-star prospect and the #12 overall player in the country.

Here are some highlights of Dorsey from the Under Armour All-American Game (EDIT: Original video was removed by the uploader, who is a Florida State fan. Sore loser. Here’s another highlight tape from the same game — again, I’m in class, so be warned if you’re at work that the sound may not be appropriate):

Watching that video, you learn three things about Dorsey:

  1. He’s fast. Very fast. [Note: His cousin is Denard Robinson. I hope there are more cousins. We could field a whole team.]
  2. He has good instincts around the football.
  3. He likes to dance. A lot.

In my opinion, we need all those things from a safety (okay, the dancing is just an added bonus). This is a huge pickup for Michigan, and another signing day feather in Rich Rodriguez’s cap.
