NC State is aggressively trying to get both of the Dorn boys to run with the Pack. This past Sunday Shooting Guard Torin Dorn committed to transfer from UNC Charlotte to NC State. Yesterday Torin’s little brother, Myles Dorn (6’2″/195) who happens to be one of the Top-50 football players in the 2016 recruiting class, told us that no one is recruiting him harder than NC State.
“The team that has been recruiting me the longest I would say is UNC, but I would say that NC State is the team recruiting me the hardest,” Dorn said. “UNC and Wake Forest are probably the two schools behind NC State that are recruiting me the hardest.”
According to Dorn (Vance High School, Charlotte) NC State offered him a scholarship sometime back in February. He said that his recruitment has picked up the pace the past couple of weeks.
“My recruitment heated up over the past couple of weeks, picking up two more offers from Michigan St. & Miami,” said Dorn. “I’m letting everything settle in, and I’m evaluating all of my options. I hope to narrow down my list sometime soon by late June.
Dorn also holds offers from Boston College, Charlotte, Duke, ECU, Louisville, Miami, Michigan St., UNC, South Carolina, Wake Forest, West Virginia, Tennessee and others. He said he probably wouldn’t camp anywhere this summer, but would probably visit some of the out-of-state schools over the summer, and would drop in to the in-state schools randomly. Some of the out-of-state schools he listed as possible visits were West Virginia, Michigan St., Miami, South Carolina, Alabama.
The consensus 3-star S/WR said he ultimately is looking for a school, and not just a football program.
“I’m looking for a school that is a good fit for me as a person,” Dorn said. “I want to go to a school that I would desire to be at even if I wasn’t playing football there.”
Dorn said he hopes to make his decision before his upcoming senior season, but doesn’t want to rush it, because he wants to make sure he is 100% confident in his decision. The Dorn family traditionally has been a UNC family, because their father played football at there. It will be interesting to see if all of NC State’s hard work pays off, and they land two Dorn boys in Raleigh, and convert a family from Blue & White, to Red & White.
