Q&A With Robert Dozier

Robert Dozier is a 6'8" forward prospect who comes to Memphis from Lithonia, Georgia by way of Laurinburg Prep. Originally a signee of the University of Georgia, Dozier signed with Memphis this past week.

Chris Chaney, his coach at Laurinburg, has a high opinion of Dozier. "He can play either forward position," he said. "He's an inside/outside kind of player. He can get to the rim and has a good shooting touch. We're just trying to get him to play with great intensity all the time. Once he does, he'll be a dominating player. Not just a good player, but a dominating player."

Here's what Dozier had to say:

Q: What has Laurinburg done to help you?

A: It's helped me create a work ethic. We have so much to do, like lifting weights two days a week and getting up early some days to practice and practicing later on the evenings too. Intensity-wise you have to come to play every practice because everyone's on the same level you are.

Q: Why did you choose Memphis?

A: Coach Cal is like a father figure to me. They were the first school that came to me too so I felt comfortable with them. I liked all the players when I went to visit and enjoyed it. Also, with our recruiting class, I think we have a good chance of winning.

Q: How good can Memphis be with your recruiting class?

A: I think we can be a monster, I'm telling you. If we stay together all through college, we're going to be pretty good.

Q: What is the best part of your game?

A: I can play inside or out. I have a good 18-foot game, but I have to work on my three-point shot and get more consistent. I can handle the ball and I can take it inside.

Q: What else do you need to work on?

A: I need to get stronger. That's my main focus right now, getting stronger and working on my jumpshot.

Q: Have you selected a major?

A: I'll probably major in physical therapy.
