Per the 247 Composite, Dorman is the top player in the state of Colorado for the Class of 2023 and the 13th-ranked quarterback prospect. He’s the 224th-ranked prospect overall.
A legitimate 6-foot-4, Dorman also played high school basketball during his freshman and sophomore years. As a junior focusing solely on football last fall, he threw for 2,765 yards and 30 touchdowns against eight interceptions while completing 61% of his passes.
During an abbreviated 2020 season, Dorman lit opposing defenses on fire, throwing for 1,829 yards and 24 touchdowns in just five games. (That’s 366 yards a game, and he completed 65% of his throws.)
247Sports’ Gabe Brooks had this to say of Dorman in his evaluation:
Legitimately 6-foot-4 with a lean frame and enormous hands. Could add significant mass in a college weight program. True pro-style pocket passer. Excels with touch throws, regardless of level. Capable of varying velocities, which aids in the proverbial “catchable” ball. Can drop it in the bucket outside the numbers. Also does a good job leading receivers to open space on swing throws to the flats and short-to-intermediate routes over the middle. Pocket awareness allows for sensing pressure. … Added mass and strength will raise throw power and zip. Intermediate-to-deep velocity needs more juice. Arm strength capacity should be very high given physical tools. Release quickness can improve, but still growing into big frame.
