NC State landed a commitment from shooting guard Torin Dorn on Sunday night, per Scout.com's Evan Daniels. Dorn, who was the Conference USA Freshman of the Year this past season, was considering the Wolfpack and Miami after opting to transfer from Charlotte.
Dorn visited Raleigh last week and more recently visited Coral Gables, but when he got home, he had his mind made up. He'll sit out the 2015-16 season and will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Dorn, who played his high school ball in Charlotte, was largely overlooked by major-conference schools during his initial recruitment--the consensus three-star prospect held a number of mid-major offers and opted to stay home.
After a fantastic freshman season, though, he raised his profile significantly. Dorn led Charlotte in scoring with 12 points per game, in the process proving that he was capable of being efficient while handling an above-average workload. Here's his advanced line (via KenPom.com):
That is a fine debut, and one indicative of a player who can play efficiently in a power conference. With his addition, the Pack is well set at the off-guard position for the foreseeable future. Terry Henderson will anchor that spot for the next two seasons, with Dorn working his way into the mix beginning in 2016-17.
