5-Star Oregon basketball commit Tyler Dorsey continued a recent trend of elite high school athletes not signing Letters of Intent (LOI). Dorsey told The Oregonian he is 100% committed to Oregon but will not be signing a LOI.
The Oregonian’s Andrew Nemec reported the precedent as recently as February’s National Signing Day for football recruits.
“ESPN four-star linebacker Roquan Smith committed to UCLA on signing day, but decided not to sign his Letter of Intent. Only hours later rumors began to surface that Bruins defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich would be stepping down from his position to accept the linebacker coaching job with the Atlanta Falcons. A few days later, those rumors proved true. The following week Smith, unencumbered by a letter of intent, committed to – but also decided not to sign binding paperwork for – Georgia.”
