Class of 2018 four-star quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson has told Maize n Brew that UCLA is his leader and Michigan is second among all the schools that have offered.

“I’m very interested [in Michigan],” the quarterback said. “They are one of my top schools I’m looking at. I have a great relationship with coach Jedd Fisch and my mom went there.”

Thompson-Robinson is currently the backup quarterback at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas (NV), behind Ohio State commit Tate Martell.

“I’m starting at wide receiver and punt return, so I’m just trying to have fun and help lead the team to another championship,” Thompson-Robinson said. “I can do that while still perfecting my craft just in case Tate goes down.

“I want to strictly be at quarterback in college. All the colleges that are recruiting me know that.”

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound athlete is the 54th ranked overall player in the 2018 class, according to 247Sports. He is the fourth-best dual threat quarterback and the second-best player in the state of Nevada.

Armand Perry at Arizona State and Jaelen Phillips committed to UCLA have been actively recruiting Thompson-Robinson to join their respective programs.

“[I want to go] somewhere with a good dental program,” he said. “Somewhere I could see myself living after college. And how I feel at the school.”

Thompson-Robinson will commit to a program in May of 2017, but will not release the official date until after the Bishop Gorman High School football season.

Regarding if he will officially visit any programs, Thompson-Robinson said, “Yeah, if I can before my decision date. If not, then no.”
