Colorado State men’s basketball has added sophomore transfer guard Kevin Dorsey, the school announced Thursday Sept. 1. Due to NCAA sanctions, Dorsey will sit out the entire 2016-17 season, and will have three years of eligibility remaining after.

“As we do with any student-athlete that CSU is looking to add to the program, the athletic department and the University does their due diligence,” Eustachy said. “The group collaborates to evaluate each potential student-athlete so those selected will be a positive impact to both their program and to the University as a whole. With Kevin, we have done the same and, as he is welcomed to campus, we look to continue to help him in his development as a young man.”


In 26 games coming off the bench for Minnesota last season, Dorsey totalled 6.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists in just over 18 minutes per-game. Dorsey’s best game as a Golden Gopher was at Indiana (Jan. 30), where he scored a career-high 21 points and recorded four rebounds and one steal.

Coming out of high school, Dorsey was a four-star and top-100 national recruit by ESPN, 247Sports and Rivals.com.
