Miami (Fla.) Coral Reef safety Dorian Munroe had originally scheduled to attend camp at the University of Georgia this weekend. However, his weekend took an unexpected turn and was not able to make it to Athens, though he did still attend a camp this weekend.
“I wanted to go to Georgia this weekend for their camp, but it was mostly a transportation issue,” Munroe said. “I am going to call (defensive backs) coach Martinez and explain to him what happened and why I was not there this weekend because I feel bad that I didn’t make it.”
The 6-foot-0, 180-pound Munroe runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds and the shuttle in 4.09 seconds. He has a 30-inch vertical jump. Though he did not make it to Athens this weekend, he participated in one camp and was present for another.
“Well I went to camp at Florida State and actually participated,” Munroe said. “U went through all of the drills and stuff. When I got done there I stopped by the camp at Florida on my way home. It was mostly just an unofficial visit because I didn’t really participate in the camp. I mostly just watched and toured the school and facilities.”
Monroe has been a two-year starter on both sides of the ball. He rushed for 560 yards on 56 carries and scored 8 touchdowns. Dorian also added 14 receptions for 320 yards. He played safety last season and snared 8 interceptions.
“I think both visits went really well,” Munroe said. “At Florida State I had like four or five pass break-ups and had one interception in drills. When I was at Florida coach Anderson took me on a tour of all their facilities and I was real impressed with all of that.”
In his junior season, Munroe earned first-team all-county and third-team all-state honors. He has a 270-pound bench press, a 350-pound squat and does 16 reps on the bench press.
“Right now my top schools are Florida, Florida State, Miami, Georgia, NC State and LSU,” Munroe said. “I really like them all a lot and I don’t know that I can say one of them is ahead. Some days it seems like one or two may be out in front, but then I think about it and another one of them seems better. It is a really tough decision.”
