Dorsey, a product of Archer High School in Atlanta, was regarded as one of the SEC’s most exciting players during his brief collegiate career. The Atlanta native made an instant impact for the Bulldogs, ranking second in the SEC, and 12th in the nation, in scoring averaging 25.8 points per game, earning him a spot on the All-SEC first-team as a freshman. He was a consensus All-SEC honoree for the 1975 season as well, averaging 21.8 points per game during his sophomore campaign. Dorsey turned professional following his sophomore season and was selected by the New Orleans Jazz in the second round of the 1976 NBA Draft. He went on to spend five seasons in the NBA.
