Donaven Dorsey commits to Washington

USA TODAY Sports

2014 forward Donaven Dorsey committed to UW on Monday.

The Washington men's basketball team gained their second commit in two weeks on Monday afternoon with Donaven Dorsey verbally committing according to several recruiting sources. Dorsey is a 6-foot-6 forward from Timberline, Wash. and is a three-star recruit according to Scout.com. The point forward prospect held offers from Gonzaga, Oregon State, Portland St. and Washington St.

Dorsey made an unofficial visit to Washington during the UW Alumni game two weeks ago and came away impressed, "The visit was real good. Watching the [alumni] game was the best part. Seeing all the history was inspiring," Dorsey told UW Dawg Pound.

Monday's news comes just days after 2014 forward Tristan Etienne made a verbal commitment to the Huskies last Thursday. The Huskies now have one scholarship open and are presumably still after a center/forward player. Dorsey will play the wing at the next level, with Etienne playing at the four or five spot.

"It's a good get for Washington. He will only improve. He's as good as any slashers at getting to the basket from the state last year, but what separates him is ability to shoot it from distance," said an opposing high school coach.

Evan Fitzner, a 6-foot-10 forward from San Diego, Calif. and Zylan Cheatham, a 6-foot-9 forward from Phoenix, Ariz. remain high priority recruits for the Husky coaching staff.
