San Bernardino Valley College sophomore running back Kendrick Dorn has made a verbal commitment to Georgia State.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound standout visited the school Thanksgiving week. He also had offers from Division I schools Idaho, Hawaii, New Mexico and Sacramento State. but didn’t seed the need to visit those.
“I loved the people and the coaching staff,” he said. “It felt just like a family.”
Dorn, a graduate of Los Osos High School, rushed for 1,088 yards and 15 touchdowns. He ranked second in the American Division Mountain Conference in yards per game (108.8) and was first in touchdowns (15). He had eight games of 100 or more yards with a high of 163 against. Mt. San Jacinto.
Dorn said the chance to play right away was also inviting.
“They’re going into the spring with just one other running back and it’s a guy they had to move from corner,” he said. “I definitely think I’ll get a chance to play. I felt I’d have more of a chance right away there than I did at some of the other places.”
