Vance basketball star Torin Dorn commits to Charlotte

Vance High senior guard Torin Dorn has committed to Charlotte, Vance athletics director Carlos Richardson told the Observer.

Dorn, 6-foot-4 and 180 pounds, averaged 14.6 points and 4.0 rebounds for Vance last season. ESPN ranks him No. 13 overall in North Carolina.

At Charlotte, Dorn joins Northside Christian’s Keyshawn Woods as the second Mecklenburg County player to commit to the 49ers in the class of 2014. Woods is ranked No. 9 in the state by ESPN. Woods and Dorn add to a 49ers roster that’s beginning to feature a lot of local talent.

The 49ers already have two home-grown kids on their roster: former Charlotte Christian player Mitch Warner, a sophomore guard, and former West Meck standout Terrence Williams, a junior guard. Another area star, Mooresville High’s Shawn Lester, was academically ineligible last season and has rejoined the team.

Two other Mecklenburg County players will join the 49ers in the future: former United Faith All-American Braxton Ogbueze transferred from Florida, and former Davidson Day star Bernard Sullivan transferred from Clemson. Both players will sit out the 2013-14 season and play in 2014-15. Also, former Myers Park guard Ben Cherry has transferred to Charlotte, after starting four games at Tulane during the past two seasons.

Great commit for UNCC. Great kid and he will love the school. Too bad the picture is not Torin, but his younger brother.

So that's why you post here--because you failed at everything else? Keep trying. You'll find something you can do.

It's such a shame when people use positive news to spread negativity.
