Combo guard Tye Dorset commits to Merrimack
Merrimack received a commitment from 6-foot-4 combo guard Tye Dorset on Monday morning. Dorset chose the Warriors over Stonehill, Army, and UMBC.
Dorset is said to be a skilled guard with an ability to score (something his high school team relies on him to do), but there is belief that he can develop into a point guard as well.
Last season as a junior, Dorset led Lenape High (N.J.) in points (19.3), rebounds (5.1), and steals. Lenape head coach Matt Wolf told The Courier Post last season that Dorest not only led with his play on the court, but he was the best leader he’s coached in 17 years.
“He’s like a coach,” Wolf said, describing a moment last season when he called a timeout to speak to calm his players, but Dorset already had that talk on his way to the bench. “I’m like great, why did I waste a timeout? I didn’t need to call a timeout again. Tell me next time Tye.”
