TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Signing
Dorsey has joined through the rest of the 2021 season, with club options for the 2022 and 2023 campaigns. The 22-year-old comes to Houston from Toronto FC, where he featured since the Reds made him the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft.
Dorsey made two first-team appearances during his time with Toronto, while also featuring in 22 matches for the club's USL Championship affiliate Toronto FC II.
“Griffin is a player that we feel at just 22 years old has the upside and capacity to continue to grow within our group and system,” Houston general manager Matt Jordan said in a release.
A Colorado native, Dorsey played his college soccer at Indiana University, scoring eight goals in 44 appearances before getting drafted by Toronto. He's featured at the U-18 and U-20 levels on the youth international circuit, with current Dynamo head coach Tab Ramos coaching him for the U-20 side.
"Griffin is a player I know well from the youth national teams," Ramos said in a release. "He is young and has excellent potential to be a consistent MLS player. Additionally, he is the type of person and relentless worker that will continue to help us build a new culture in Houston.”
