Q&A: 2012 Guard Sherron Dorsey-Walker


Sherron Dorsey-Walker is 6-foot-4 wing guard out of Detroit Pershing who has been steadily rising up the recruiting charts, landing at number 74 in Rivals’ 2012 top 100. He played for the R.E.A.C.H. Legends this summer and really impressed. Michigan has been recruiting Dorsey-Walker heavily of late and could be on the verge of offering him a scholarship. Most recently they hosted hosted him for a visit. Here’s what Sherron had to say:

Describe your game. I’m a good shooter, I like getting my teammates involved and riving to the hole when it’s open.

What offers do you have so far? Baylor, Indiana, Dayton, Drake, Western Michigan, Central Michigan, Oakland and Fairview.

What has Michigan been telling you regarding an offer? They said they were real close to offering me. They just wanted to know if I was really interested in them first. They’re supposed to be at the gym on Thursday for my open run. Coach Beilein and coach Bacari are supposed to come.

So are you interested? Yes, I am.

If Michigan were to offer you, where would they stand? They’d be one of the top programs.

Any timeframe for commitment? No, not really. I could just commit any time.

Have you visited Michigan? Yes, I did. I think it was their first official practice, the day before they went to Europe.

What did you do? I watched them practice, talked to coach Beilein, talked to Lavall Jordan, Jeff Meyer and Bacari, talked to all the coaches and stuff.

What did you think? They were playing hard. Good runs, good practice.

How’d AAU go this summer? It went well. We won a team championship at Kentucky and in L.A. we finished in the championship round.

What did you think of the new coaches? They’re cool. I knew Bacari when he was at Western, though.

What do you like about Michigan? Style of play, the relationship the coaches have with the players. They’ve got a well-designed program.

How do you think you would fit into Michigan’s offense? I’d do whatever they want me to do. I see myself fitting in well. I’d probably play the two.

Anything your focused on improving about your game right now? Just being more vocal on the court.

Any player people compare you to? Some say Brandon Roy or Kevin Durant sometimes.

What ultimately goes into your decision? Being able to trust the coach, being able to get better at the school and the school being able to help me.

  • I really like that we are looking at a lot of options for our final roster spots. JB is casting a wide net and with MSU done recruiting for the next two years, JB can take his time and find who fits the best for us. This is going very well so far.

    Isn’t this going to make our back-court totally crowded? Do we really have room for another 6’4″ guy? I haven’t looked at the scholarship breakdown in a while, but this just seems like overkill. Seems to me that the pressing need is at C.

    by the time the ’12 class gets here novak and stu will be gone which really means we need 2s and 3s in the 2012 class……..vogrich and darius will be seniors and then we are depleted so this makes perfect sense………after this year michigan will have backups for every position covered so now they can go after whoever they want really

  • I think it’s important to understand that there are four guys that are 6-foot-9 or taller with freshmen eligibility. Christian is another guy who might be projected at the four.

    Scout has lowered Amir’s interest level to low for Michigan.

    How does Hawkins compare to Dorsey-Walker, Stauskas and Robinson? Rivals ranks them all ahead of Hawkins yet it seemes like he is the priority over all three. If Pointer chooses Michigan, we can really only take one of these guys. I think we can take two if Pointer goes elsewhere but who knows if we wait that long. I would not be shocked if we land D-Walker and Robinson in the next few months and spend the next year looking for a 2012 big man.

    Rooms open up for Amir in Kentucky with the new allegation that the Turkey guy played pro in Turkey.

    I do worry about WV regarding Pointer’s recruitment. But it is a good sign that he visits AA the last.

    Interesting that Huggy has also offered Trey McDonald. As for Pointer, I feel pretty good about our chances. Ann Arbor is close to family and we get the last visit just a few weeks before signing day.
