Texas DT Dorsey to transfer

Texas senior defensive tackle Ashton Dorsey, a part-time starter

last season, will transfer.

The Longhorns coach Mack Brown announced the move Tuesday but

did not say where Dorsey would go. Dorsey has struggled with a calf

injury in training camp and was not listed on the depth chart

released Monday for this week’s season-opener against New Mexico

State.

Dorsey played in nine games for the No. 15 Longhorns last season

and started twice. He ranked third on the team in tackles for loss

with 10. His absence has pushed freshman Hassan Ridgeway and Alex

Norman into the top backup roles behind starter Malcom Brown.
