04/17/2013 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: 124 FBS PROGRAMS, 124 POSSIBLE UNDRAFTED ROOKIE FREE AGENTS: MARYLAND: WR Kevin Dorsey (6-1, 207, 4.47)...Dorsey's 2012 production (18 catches) was a casualty of Maryland's quarterback woes, but he flashed NFL size, speed and playmaking ability to possibly make a roster in camp. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

07/24/2012 - As the Terps prepare for year two of coach Randy Edsall's rebuilding project, Dorsey is optimistic another change is on the horizon. He's a team captain now, so enthusiasm comes with the territory, but Dorsey is convinced better times for Maryland football have arrived. "Right now, we're in the underdog position, which really honestly isn't a bad position to be in," said Dorsey, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior who led the team with 45 catches for 573 yards and three touchdowns last season. "You're kind of under the radar." The Terps finished 10th in the ACC in passing offense (210 yards per game) last season and were the only team in the conference with more interceptions (16) than touchdown passes (14). Dorsey realizes another season of drops and inconsistency in the passing game could spell trouble for Edsall, who was criticized after his disastrous first season in College Park. "He's taken it pretty well," Dorsey said. "He's been pretty much a punching bag in the media." As a player who signed at Maryland when Ralph Friedgen was still the coach, Dorsey has seen his fair share of seismic events in the Terrapins' football program. Though they still have to prove it to the rest of the ACC, Dorsey is ready to proclaim the dark days over. "I can guarantee you right now we're going to win," Dorsey said. "We're going to win, and we're going to bring Maryland back to what it used to be." - The Baltimore Sun

06/21/2012 - According to coach Edsall, the football team's grades over the past three semesters were higher than in the six semesters before he arrived. And the school released figures on Wednesday that showed significant improvement in the Academic Progress Rates of the football program, which suffered a reduction of three scholarships for the 2011 season based on previous low APRs. Those numbers are considered by some to be more significant that victories. The fans, however, just want wins. ''I consider myself a winner and a developer of young men,'' Edsall said. ''But last year was tough from the standpoint that all anybody looked at was the record. They looked at the record, they looked at people who didn't want to be here and left, and maybe don't understand in football you've got to have a program if you're going to be successful.'' Like that football field being built outside Edsall's office, the foundation for success begins at the ground level. ''I would say the program has definitely grown,'' said wide receiver Kevin Dorsey, one of only 14 seniors on the 2012 squad. ''You can feel the brotherhood we have, the relationship we have with each other. And the relationship has gotten a lot better with the coaches.'' Asked to address Edsall's tough-guy reputation, Dorsey said, ''He's fair. Coach Friedgen had rules, but the thing is, coach Edsall enforces those every day. That's the same thing you're going to encounter in the real world. You can't decide that on some days you're going to speed on the highway, and some days you're not. The law is the law. He just enforces the law. I think at the end of the day, his discipline is going to help us as a team.'' - AP Sports
