Torin Dorn is a good pick up for the Pack and will make an immediate impact on the program. I am sure many are thinking that we will have to wait and see his impact but honestly the year off will be great for him and the players who are currently eligible to play this season. Dorn went on record as saying he wanted to improve his ball handling skills and attack each days as an opportunity to improve upon his weaknesses. As we spoke with Ralston Turner about his transfer year he talked about how each year off is unique to the individual. Dorn is already blessed with a frame that is capable of playing in the ACC as he stands 6-5 and weights over 200 pounds.

Dorn will be important for the Pack as he will help improve the competition landscape in practice and become a valuable member of the scout team. I am sure Coach Lutz is extremely pleased to have the talents of Dorn on his “Swat Team” and will use his skills to help prepare the Pack as they get ready for their opponents. Playing on the scout team will benefit Dorn as well by having the full attention of the starters in practice and seeing many different looks. I would argue that playing on the scout team is a more challenging task than being in the starting rotation, as one has to not only understand NC State’s game plan but countless other schools’ too.

Also looking at the depth chart it is easy to see that there will be minutes available after he is done sitting out. Terry Henderson will be a senior but he is the only true two guard on the roster. With three seasons of eligibility remaining there is little doubt that Dorn will see floor time, especially if he uses his year off wisely!

I think Dorn will be a great member of the Pack and make a huge impact in the coming years!

The real question is he an ACC caliber player.  Freshman POY in an inferior conference.  Only time will tell if this is a wasted pick up or a smart move.  Still does nothing for us next year.

NC State Offers Top-10 Forward Nate Ament

Published

on

NC State was in to watch 2025 Forward Nate Ament (6’8″/170) last week with Team Loaded on the Adidas AAU circuit, and the Wolfpack extended him a scholarship offer on the 20th.

Ament is a consensus Top-40 player in the 2025 recruiting class, with ON3 ranking him 10th overall. Rivals and ON3 both rank him as a 5-star player, and he is the consensus #1 player in the state of Virginia in his class.

He plays for Highland High School in Manassas, Virginia, where he averaged 19.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, 4.0 blocks and 3.7 assists per game last season.

Ament’s offer sheet is insane, holding offers from NC State, Virginia Tech, Duke, Iowa, Wake Forest, Virginia, Pitt, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Louisville, Tennessee, Ole Miss, FSU, Alabama, Texas and others.

NC State Offers 3-Star Small Forward Ryan Frost

Published

on

3-Star 2025 Small Forward Ryder Frost (6’6″/205) has received an offer from NC State.

247Sports ranks Frost as a 3-Star prospect, while the other databases have him as unranked (Rivals), or unlisted (ESPN & ON3). 247 ranks him as the #5 overall player in the state of Massachusetts in the 2025 recruiting class.

When it’s all said and done, I don’t expect Frost to be an unranked or unrated prospect by any database. He has been averaging 15 points and 8.2 rebounds for the Middlesex Magic in AAU ball in the Under Armour circuit this Spring, shooting 43% from three.

Sometimes everything can change in one day. Yesterday, after picking up an offer from Syracuse, Frost also picked up offers from Nebraska, Minnesota, Wake Forest, NC State, Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech. Prior to yesterday, Frost also held offers from West Virginia, Iowa, Penn State and others.

Frost looks to be one of the best three-point shooters in the nation in the 2025 recruiting class. He plays High School ball for Phillips Exeter in Exeter, New Hampshire.

Here’s a look at some highlights from his recent AAU circuit.

Here’s a look at Frost’s Junior Highlights at Exeter, where he helped lead them to the state title. He was named the Player of the Year in New Hampshire, averaging 21.6 point and 7.7 rebounds per game, shooting 44 percent from three, making 201 from beyond the arc.
