Three-star tight end Louis Dorsey (6-foot-6, 220 pounds, Jacksonville, Fla.) had offers from schools like LSU and Florida State, but it looks like he will be going elsewhere. On Saturday, Dorsey announced that he was committing to Lovie Smith and Illinois.
Dorsey made the announcement during an official visit to Champaign.
Though a three-star, Dorsey had some major offers as evidenced by his offers from LSU, Florida State, and Baylor. The big tight end will have a chance to make an impact with Illinois thanks to his size, and after a 3-9 season this year, the Illini could definitely use the talent.
Dorsey is the 19th commitment for Illinois’s 2017 class.
