Sherron Dorsey-Walker has IU among top schools

  • 09/21/2010 7:04 pm in

A day after Tom Crean, Steve McClain and Bennie Seltzer attended one of his workouts, 2012 Detroit Pershing guard Sherron Dorsey-Walker said Indiana is among the top schools on his list.

“They’re one of my top programs,” Dorsey-Walker told Inside the Hall on Tuesday. “I’m very interested.”

The 6-4 guard, who is ranked No. 74 in the Rivals 150, said Indiana became interested after watching him with the R.E.A.C.H. Legends in July at the Kentucky Hoopfest and offered a scholarship in late July.

A trip to Bloomington could be the next step for Dorsey-Walker to become more acclimated to the Indiana program.

“My coach is supposed to take me,” he said. “Probably at the end of this month or early next month he’s supposed to take me down there.”

The junior guard also holds offers from Baylor, Dayton, Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Oakland, Fairfield and Drake.

Here’s a video compilation of the R.E.A.C.H. Legends that includes some Dorsey-Walker highlights:

    I wish the season would just get here already. I just found this website after last season ended, as great as everyone’s input is when it comes to recruiting and prognasticating, I really look forward to having actual games to break down and read all of your thoughts, not to mention when we start winning games, a lot of these guys that are on the fence will start to fall our way…..Speaking of winning games we will need to steal some road wins in the Big Ten this year to ensure postseason play, we don’t get Penn St on the road, so my sights are set on Northwestern, January 9th to start things off, there will be weaker teams (Iowa/Michigan) but it is a 3 hour drive from Indy. We need to make that an alternate IU home game! I will be there, anyone else?

    Isn’t that a little like getting underwear and socks for Christmas? Sure you need them and appreciate the thought, but we were hoping for an announcement of a new recruit who had verballed for IU. It will be good to hear the wisdom of “old” Korman.

  • I didn’t watch the whole video but my first reaction was this is a VJ3 clone. The kid can shoot 3’s. Since we are talking about VJ3, I can’t wait to see how he performs with Mo Creek coming back. Hoosiers are on the RISE!!

    No, he’s not. As the so-called “number 1” option for the entire Big Ten season after Creek was hurt, VJ3 went 13-51 from 3, for a percentage of 25%. Before the Big Ten season, with Creek on the floor, he went 8-26, 31%.

    If you want to argue that Jones had to take more 3’s because of Creek’s injury, I’ll agree completely. But if you’re arguing that he’d have made a higher percentage with Creek on the floor, okay, he may have shot 31% instead of 27%. Those are awful numbers.

    I totally agree that Jones is more effective with Creek on the floor, but not because he’d make more 3’s. Other shooters around Jones spread the floor and allow him to do what he does best, which is penetrate, get to the rim, and get to the foul line. They don’t suddenly transform him into a good 3-pt shooter.

    Assuming Mo is healthy he could honestly end up being on the first team. There is no reason to doubt he will score 18-20 points per during big ten play. And I agree certainly Watford and VJIII could be in the top 3 teams as well. These three combined will average at least half of the numbers that accumulate on a stat sheet and it’s just a matter of who is going to rise above the others. Now Elston on the other hand it could be another year or two until he is at that level. But we’ll see, he does look like a beast now and looks ready to make an impact in the paint. Regardless who it is I am thrilled to have 3 or 4 guys who have a chance to receive some league accolades.

    but, but… VJ3 is not a good 3 point shooter….

  • Casey B.

    You’re totally right. I completely spaced Watford. Which is odd, because I love that guy.

    “Pick to Click” may actually require some forethought this season. That’s a good thing.

    I think he’ll get better. It’s not uncommon for a guys shooting percentage to increase substantially from his sophomore year to his junior year. Better shot selection, more confidence as an upperclassman, and another year to work at it. I think he could end up around a 35-40 percent shooter from deep this year but we’ll have to wait and see. I sure hope he does because he may need to for IU to make that leap to the top 6 instead of the bottom 5 in the Big 10!
