One-time blue-chip Michigan recruit Demar Dorsey is headed to the University of Hawaii and hopes to be eligible this fall, a source told CBS Wednesday morning.
Dorsey, who was a five-star recruit in 2010, is expected to arrive in Hawaii in late July, the source confirmed. Hawaii will have to petition the NCAA for Dorsey to become academically eligible for the 2012 season. He has three years of eligibility remaining.
The 6-2, 195-pound South Florida native has had a curious route to Hawaii. In high school he was initially committed to Florida. Then, he told reporters he was committed to Florida State. He ultimately signed with Michigan, but was not admitted to the school. Reports surfaced that he had multiple felony charges in his past. Months later, he was going to play at Louisville but he never played for the Cardinals either due to NCAA eligibility issues.
Dorsey did play a season in Michigan – at Grand Rapids Community College, but that school has announced that it was dropping football.
