On Monday afternoon, the Washington Huskies kept their hot streak going on the recruiting trail by locking up their second commitment from the class of 2014.
Donaven Dorsey pledged his decision in favor of the Huskies and head coach Lorenzo Romar and his decision comes just days after Washington landed 6-foot-10 Canadian prospect, Tristan Etienne. The two commitments are the programs’ first two additions from the senior-to-be high school class. According to the Seattle Times, Washington, at this time, now has one scholarship open for the class of 2014.
Dorsey is quality pick-up for the Huskies and an improving prospect to boot. At 6-foot-6, Dorsey continues to grow and rise up the national rankings. Dorsey is currently listed as the 106th best recruit within the class of 2014, according to Rivals.com. He currently attends Timberline High School in Lacey, Washington.
Prior to his commitment to Romar and the Huskies, Dorsey had been receiving plenty of interest from a few other northwest area schools, including Washington State, Gonzaga, Oregon State and Portland State. This past season as a junior, Dorsey averaged 21 points and nine rebounds per game for Timberline. He was named to the second team Class 3A squad by the Associated Press following the 2012-13 season.
With a decision now out of the way, Dorsey can turn his attention to his final season and academic year in high school. While on the AAU circuit, Dorsey runs with Team Mocha.
