Texas has gone far and wide for linebackers over the past few recruiting cycles. In 2018, it was Ayodele Adeoye from IMG Academy in Florida. The 2019 class included De’Gabriel Floyd from California and Marcus Tillman from Florida. In 2020, Texas did not have to go far to secure their first linebacker commit. Peter Dorbah was a linebacker identified early as someone who could be a good fit in Todd Orlando’s defense. Ultimately, it was a fit that was too good to pass up, as Dorbah pulled the trigger and became the newest member of the 2020 class.
Dorbah ranks as 7th best outside linebacker in the country and the 111th best player overall, according to the 247sports composite rankings. He chose the Longhorns over offers from LSU, Oklahoma State, Baylor and Arkansas.
Name: Prince Dorbah
High School: Highland Park

2018: 92 Tackles, 36 TFL, 20 Sacks

College coaches often talk about finding players who fit their scheme well, and Dorbah is someone who fits that description almost perfectly. He currently spends a lot of time in the Highland Park defense as a defensive end, but his frame and physical traits could translate very well to linebacker at the next level. He possesses a lot of athleticism while showing the ability and willingness to play around the line of scrimmage. Regardless of what position he ends up at, Todd Orlando is getting another athletic defender who can play in space, which you can never have enough of in the Big 12.
Texas has made an effort to re-establish their presence in DFW this recruiting cycle, and it has paid dividends. Dorbah becomes the 4th player from DFW to commit to the Longhorns, a number that is likely to rise in the coming months. Dorbah represents another player who raises the overall talent floor of the Longhorns and gives them another potential All-Big 12 type player to develop.
