Oregon SG Tyler Dorsey To Test Draft Waters

Oregon freshman shooting guard Tyler Dorsey will enter this year’s draft but will not hire an agent, reports Jeff Borzello of ESPN.com. That gives him the option of withdrawing by May 25th and staying in school.

“My family and I just thought that was the best decision to make going further,” the 6’4″ Dorsey said, “giving me the option to come back to Oregon as well.”

Dorsey is not included in the DraftExpress list of top 100 prospects, but he is ranked 37th among NCAA freshmen. He is the 60th-ranked prospect on Chad Ford’s ESPN.com ratings.

Dorsey averaged 13.4 points and 4.3 rebounds per game as he helped the Ducks post a 31-7 record and secure a No. 1 seed in the West Region of the NCAA Tournament. Teammate Dillon Brooks announced Thursday that he was also entering the draft and not hiring an agent, while Chris Boucher doesn’t plan to enter the draft.
