Meeting The Terps Offense: #14 Kevin Dorsey

Meeting The Terps Offense: #14 Kevin Dorsey

College Park, MD. - TSR gets you acclimated with the 2012 Terps, first looking at the offense.

Player: Kevin Dorsey

Hometown: Forestville, Md.

Class: Freshman

Height & Weight: 6-foot-2, 210 pounds

Projected Position on Depth Chart: Starting wide receiver

The rundown: Dorsey is a familiar face on the Terps' offense, starting all 10 of the games he played in last season. He missed games against Florida State and Boston College with injuries but still finished the season leading the team in receptions with 45, receiving yards with 573 yards, receiving touchdowns with three touchdowns and yards per catch with 12.7 yards. He also ranked 10th in the ACC with 4.5 receptions per game last season. He had eight receptions for a career high 124 yards against Miami and hauled in a 52-yard pass from former quarterback Danny O'Brien to set up the go-ahead score. He followed that performance with a career-high nine receptions for 79 yards and a touchdown against West Virginia.

Expectations for 2012: Dorsey should open the season as the starter and hold onto the job. A fifth-year player, Dorsey has football smarts and runs polished routes for the quarterback. Drops were a concern amongst the entire wide receiver corps last year but Dorsey's experience will be needed at a very youthful position and he will be looked upon to develop the Terps' receivers for the future. The biggest question surrounding Dorsey is his durability. He redshirted his first year because of an injury, missed parts of last season because of an injury and has been battling injuries this off-season. The Terps will need Dorsey to stay healthy on a consistent basis in 2012.
