Prince Dorbah has found a match in the Texas Longhorns.

The four-star linebacker out of Highland Park High School in greater Dallas signed his National Letter of Intent with Texas on Wednesday. Despite the fact that Dorbah originally signaled his commitment to the Longhorns over the summer, among his other potential landing spots across the NCAA included Arkansas, LSU, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

The 6’2, roughly 210-pound product is bruising by nature. As Burnt Orange Nation noted after his commitment to the Longhorns earlier this year, Dorbah fits the mold of the modern-day hybrid edge rusher and has historically been as productive as any prospect at his position across the nation. During his junior year at Highland Park, he amassed 92 total tackles — 36 of which were for a loss — as well as 20 sacks and 19 quarterback hurries.

In fact, Dorbah was instrumental in helping guide Highland Park to their third consecutive 5A Division I state championship last year.

In 2019, the team’s efforts ended in a third round loss to Lone Star in Frisco in late November.

“I’m going to try to put on some more weight,” Dorbah said of his spring workout regiment next year, prior to when he takes the field for the Horns, the website Horn Sports reports. “Stay in shape, workout and just do whatever I can to help my overall game improve.”

Dorbah doesn’t intend to enroll early. Instead, he’ll finish up senior year in the spring as a part of Highland Park’s varsity basketball team.

A consensus four-star prospect, Dorbah is ranked as the No. 131 player nationally and the No. 10 outside linebacker, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
