Draft Scout Phillip Dorsett News
01/22/15 - 2015 Senior Bowl, Wednesday: Hurricane watch during South practice...The favorite to run the fastest 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine next month, Dorsett has “blur” speed to make defensive backs look silly. He has shown that sudden footwork at the line of scrimmage to beat press and the instant acceleration to win vertically downfield. Dorsett routinely won 1-on-1 drills against the South defensive backs, including his former teammate Gunter. However, there is such a thing as playing too fast and Dorsett will do that at times, losing footing or getting wild in his breaks. Nonetheless, he has the game-changing speed to not only make an impact on offense, but also as a return man once he adds seasoning and polish to his game. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
10/22/14 - In 2012, Phillip Dorsett's pride was hurt. In 2013, it was his knee. This year, nothing has slowed the speedy Miami wide receiver. At his current pace, Dorsett would be headed to the NCAA record book at season's end. He's averaging 34.4 yards per catch, leading the nation by a wide margin and a figure that's 2.5 yards better than anyone at the top level of college football has ever managed over the course of a full season with at least 30 receptions. For a player who was maligned for dropping a pair of sure-fire touchdowns in a nationally televised, prime-time, Miami debacle against Notre Dame two years ago, then saw his junior season wrecked at midseason by a torn knee ligament, everything is finally going his way.
"Everybody goes through slumps," Dorsett said. "I don't care who you are, you're going to go through something that's going to just change your life and make you a better person. Honestly, I'm happy that happened to me. Going through that, I know what to expect. I know what I can take. And honestly, nothing can get to me anymore." Apparently, that includes defenders. Dorsett has 16 catches, which doesn't rank among the top five on his team and is a total exceeded by 352 other players so far this season at the Football Bowl Subdivision level. But the story with Dorsett isn't the number of touches - and rather, what he's doing with them. All but three of his catches have gone for at least 20 yards. He had a 201-yard game on just four grabs earlier this season, and a 143-yard, three-catch game against Cincinnati earlier this month. - AP Sports
10/13/14 - OCT 13 ACC RECEIVER OF THE WEEK: Phillip Dorsett, Miami, Sr., WR, 5-10, 195, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.,...Dorsett surpassed 100 receiving yards for the second time this season as he hauled in three passes for 143 yards in Saturday’s 55-34 win over visiting Cincinnati. He also had a pair of receiving touchdowns for his third career multi-touchdown game. His 79-yard receiving touchdown in the third quarter was the longest of his career. He currently leads the Hurricanes with 550 receiving yards this season. - ACC football
10/12/14 - SEP 15 ACC RECEIVER OF THE WEEK: Phillip Dorsett, Miami, Sr., WR, 5-10, 180, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.,...Dorsett recorded a career-high 201 receiving yards and two touchdowns on four catches in the Hurricanes’ 41-20 win over Arkansas State. He is the nation’s only receiver this season to record three catches of 50-plus yards in the same game. The career day for Dorsett marks just the third time in program history that a player had over 200 receiving yards in a game. Dorsett became the second receiver in the nation this season with two touchdown catches of at least 60 yards in the same game and the first ACC player with two TD catches of 60-plus yards in the same game since 2011. - ACC football
10/18/13 - Miami receiver Phillip Dorsett out 4 to 6 weeks...Miami came back to beat North Carolina on Thursday night, but it lost one of its top receivers in the process. Phillip Dorsett left Thursday night's game in the first half with a knee injury, and on Friday coach Al Golden confirmed that Dorsett would miss the next four to six weeks with a partial tear of his MCL. "Last night it did not look good," Golden told the Miami Herald. "We're all relieved and I know he is. We're all disappointed, but he'll go through the adversity and be back. Certainly it could have been far worse."
Dorsett has 13 receptions for 272 yards for the Hurricanes this season. While he'll be missed, the Canes did get some good news on the injury front for a couple other key players. Safety Kacy Rodgers hurt his ankle on Thursday night, but Golden doesn't believe he'll miss any game time because of it. Then there's running back Duke Johnson who left the game after taking a knee to the helmet. Golden said he's still being evaluated, but it looks as though the team's leading rusher will be able to play in Miami's next game against Wake Forest. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
