Looking for more prospects to add to the secondary for the 2016 class, Clemson offered defensive back Myles Dorn (6-2 200) of Charlotte earlier this week.
Dorn is a safety and is the son of former North Carolina and NFL player Torin Dorn. His older brother, also named Torin, is a basketball player at NC State.
Dorn also has offers from Boston College, Duke, Louisville, Michigan State, North Carolina, NC State and Tennessee. He said the Clemson offer from recruiters Danny Pearman and Mike Reed rolled in on Tuesday.
“They like my versatility, athleticism, ball skills and physicality,” said Dorn, whose grandmother lives in Anderson and has visited Clemson in the past. “I was there last year. I liked it. It’s a good atmosphere.”
Never miss a local story.
Dorn said he has not been to any games this season but will take an official visit to West Virginia this weekend and one to NC State the following weekend. He looking at Clemson, Tennessee, Michigan State and North Carolina for his other official visits. He wants to make his decision before his playoffs in November.
“It will be where I see myself fitting into the program and being comfortable for four years,” Dorn said. He does not have a favorite at this point.
▪ Two official visits of note this weekend involving Clemson targets: linebacker Rahshaun Smith of IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., to Oregon; and defensive back Tony Butler of Lakewood, Ohio, to Arizona State.
▪ Class of 2018 athlete Derion Kendrick of South Pointe was offered Thursday by Tennessee. He also has offers from Clemson, USC, Florida and North Carolina.
