In the last day, Gatorsfirst recruiting correspondent DK_Thompson has learned of former Gator commit, expected FSU commit Demar Dorsey's legal troubles. The information was first reported on his twitter account here .
You can check them out from an indisputable source <a href="http://www.clerk-17th-flcourts.org/Clerkwebsite/BCCOC2/Pubsearch/case_search_results.aspx?hidSearchType=party_case&txtLastName=dorsey&txtFirstName=demar&txtMiddleInitial=&txtBusinessEntity=&chkAdvSearch=0&cboCourtType=&sbmPublicParty=Submit&user_type=&DisplayCitation=yes&DisplayType=Criminal" target="_blank">here .
Now, I have no idea the specifics of these cases, and am no legal expert. I don't know if they'll all go away, or what.
The reason I think it's noteworthy: I think it's a possible explanation for the way his recruiting went down . When his commitment wavered, he had some curious quotes about not speaking to the UF coaches, etc. It now seems as if the UF coaches backed off, possibly after hearing about this legal situation. Did his commitment waver in the first place because UF coaches had backed off with so many other defensive backs?
No matter how you look at it, it's a different situation than how the coaching staff handled the Matt Elam saga.
