Dozier was born Oct. 25, 1996 in Columbia, South Carolina, where he attended high school at Spring Valley. After being named 2015 South Carolina Mr. Basketball and scoring 14 points in the 2015 McDonald's All-American game, Dozier elected to spend his collegiate career at South Carolina. It was the same school chosen in the 1980s by his father, Perry Dozier and his uncle, Terry Dozier. Dozier also has two sisters, Amelia and Asia, the latter of which attended South Carolina, as well. While attending USC, Dozier majored in sport and entertainment management. You can follow him on Twitter (@Dozier_Kid). Dozier was third in the SEC in three categories -- field-goal attempts (469), two-point field goal attempts (328) and steals (60) -- in the 2016-17 season for South Carolina. Also in that season, the Columbia, South Carolina native was fifth in the SEC in steals per game (1.7). Along with field-goal attempts and two-point field goal attempts, Dozier led the Gamecocks in assists per game (2.8) and total assists (101) while ranking second in points per game (13.9) and total points (501). He helped lead the Gamecocks to the Final Four of the 2017 NCAA Tournament. Dozier entered the 2017 NBA Draft after his sophomore season with South Carolina. He went undrafted and signed with the Los Angeles Lakers during the summer.
