Charlotte transfer Torin Dorn looking at NC State and three others

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports



Guard Torin Dorn left the Charlotte 49ers program after their coaching change, and he quickly became the target of high-major programs, with good reason: he averaged 12 points per game last season and earned Conference USA Freshman of the Year honors.

NC State is one of the schools with a shot to land him, along with Texas, Miami, and Florida. Per Jeff Goodman, Dorn has a visit to the Hurricanes set up for next week. No doubt the Pack would like to get him on campus in Raleigh before he makes a decision.

At 6-5, Dorn definitely has the size to play the two at this level, and he used his size effectively at Charlotte, knocking down 56.6% of his two-point attempts. He also shot a respectable 34.2% from three, though that typically wasn't his preferred method of scoring.

He'll have three years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2015-16 season, and while he can't do anything for the Pack's guard shortage this year, he'd be a nice backcourt piece to have down the road. State's backcourt in 16-17 has the potential to be really good, depending on how the recruitin' chips fall.
