Draft Scout Phillip Dorsett News
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
09/07/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Junior WR Phillip Dorsett had a quiet night against FAU (two catches for only 14 yards), but he is one who could make a big difference with his production. He also is a factor in the return game, though he didn't show it against FAU with only 11 yards on one kickoff return and 17 yards on three punt runback. - The Sports Xchange
08/30/13 - Scouting the Miami passing game: QB Stephen Morris has several talented wide receivers to throw to, starting with junior Phillip Dorsett (58 catches, 842 yards), junior Rashawn Scott (35-512 in nine games), and senior Allen Hurns (26-314 in 11 games). The Hurricanes look to take more advantage of their tight ends (junior Clive Walford, senior Asante Cleveland, and junior Beau Sandland) than they have the last couple of years. - The Sports Xchange
08/10/13 - TOP MIAMI (FLA.) PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 4. WR Phillip Dorsett (5-9, 187, 4.42)*...A substantial reason behind Morris' success at quarterback is the help he received from his receivers in 2012, most notably Dorsett who emerged as the team's go-to threat last season. He led the Hurricanes in receiving a year ago with 58 catches for 842 yards and four scores, totals that ranked him among the best in the ACC. Dorsett is the explosive playmaker for the Hurricanes with his natural speed and ability to create after the catch.
He ranked among the leaders in the country with 21 plays of 25-plus yards and showed the ability to make an impact at all levels of the field, also helping out on special teams as a return man. Dorsett, who also runs track at Miami, is undersized and will drop too many easy catches, but he has terrific body control and tracks the ball well downfield. He was listed as a back-up on Miami's spring depth chart, but expect Dorsett to be Morris' leading target again in 2013. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
07/19/13 - 2013 BILETNIKOFF AWARD WATCH LIST: Phillip Dorsett, Miami, JR...Dorsett played in all 12 games at receiver and punt returner in 2012, making 10 starts. A third-team All-ACC selection by Phil Steele, he led the Hurricanes with 842 receiving yards and four TDs on 58 catches and ranked second on the team with 21 plays of 25+ yards. He also recorded seven receptions of 40+ yards, including two TD receptions of 60+ yards. - Miami football
