Dozier said Miami, Detroit and San Antonio have shown the most interest because of repeat phone calls.

Don't know much about him other than what I read online. Good height and wingspan; needs to put on some weight. Here's the blurb from the Memphis website:

Has gained strength from his dedication in the weight room the last year and a half ... A terrific finisher around the rim ... Has range out to the three-point line, but is better from the mid-range and in ... Has 7-foot-3 wingspan that he uses to his advantage ... Has ability to keep possessions alive by offensive rebounds/tips with his length ... Also able to block and alter shots on the defensive end with his wingspan.


Brief controversy regarding his SAT scores, but not the same as what was going on with Derrick Rose:

Dozier's inconsistent SAT scores prevented him from being admitted to the University of Georgia. His initial SAT score was invalidated by the company that scores the exam, and his follow-up score was dramatically lower, according to Georgia records obtained Friday by The Associated Press.


Dozier gave a verbal commitment to Memphis in 2003 but signed with Georgia in March 2004. Georgia officials were alarmed that Dozier scored 1,260 on the SAT because the score wasn't consistent with his grades at Lithonia (Ga.) High School or his much lower score on the PSAT.


Dozier's score on a follow-up SAT test was 720, according to records obtained from the University of Georgia, and the results of his first SAT were canceled by the Educational Testing Service.


He began his four-year career at Memphis in the 2005-06 school year and graduated in May with a degree in interdisciplinary studies.


According to mock drafts, he would likely be available with our picks in the 50s. Wouldn't mind taking a flier on him, and as the (overused) adage goes, "You can't teach size." Sounds like he could be a bit of a project with a need for a good weight room, but having a jump shot is a good start for a big man.

LOL. If you cheat on the SAT, make sure the score is reaonable. This guy can't even cheat right.
