  Diamonte Tucker-Dorsey grew up dreaming of playing on college football's highest level, but out of high school he didn't garner enough interest. After playing four seasons at James Madison, appearing in the past 38 consecutive games and making 22 starts at linebacker in the process, Tucker-Dorsey said he entered his name in the transfer portal searching to accomplish his childhood dream. "I feel like I'm a good player and I just wanted to be on a bigger stage," Tucker-Dorsey told the Daily News-Record. "Going into the FBS transition, not being able to win anything had something to do with it. The biggest thing was getting more exposure, playing on a bigger stage and showcasing my talent." Tucker-Dorsey starred on defense this past fall with the Dukes, leading the team with 116 tackles, adding nine tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, a pair of forced fumbles and four interceptions.

It wasn't an easy decision for the Norfolk native, he said. Tucker-Dorsey called himself a "JMU guy" and said this wasn't something he saw coming a few years ago. "I've been thinking about it for a while," Tucker-Dorsey said. "It definitely wasn't something that just popped into my head. It's been on my mind for a while." Since entering the portal on Tuesday evening, Tucker-Dorsey has heard from a number of major college football programs. The 5-foot-10, 214 pound linebacker has received offers from Auburn, Texas, Texas A&M, UCF and Ole Miss during his short time in the portal. - Daily News-Record
