Eastern Washington Signs Ivan Dorsey

Eastern Washington has added a sixth member to its recruiting class with the signing of guard Ivan Dorsey from the City College of San Francisco. That junior college immediately stuck out to me, because it was the same one where Collin Chiverton played at before signing with EWU.

Dorsey is a six foot guard who averaged 12.9 PPG last year, and he showed himself to be efficient offensive player. He had shooting percentages of 51% / 46% / 83% last season, which are certainly very solid numbers and make him the prototypical Jim Hayford player.

“We need winning players, great shooters and quickness. Ivan brings all three on the court,” said Hayford. “Off the court he is a solid person and dedicated student. I look forward to coaching Ivan the next two years.”
Coach Jim Hayford has established a nice pipeline to the City College of San Francisco, which is never a bad thing since they are so successful (27-3 last season). At one point they were the top ranked JUCO team in California, and won 23 straight games. The season before (with both Dorsey and Chiverton), they ended their season by winning 27 straight games.

Dorsey adds to an already deep recruiting class for the Eagles.
