Notre Dame adds PF Austin Torres

Forward Austin Torres (Mishawaka, Ind./Penn) switched courses on Monday night, offering a verbal commitment to Notre Dame just a week after pledging to Central Michigan, The South Bend Tribune reported.

Torres is an AAU teammate of recent ND pledge and ESPN 100 point guard Demetrius Jackson (Mishawaka, Ind./Marian). Head coach Mike Brey offered Torres after Jackson announced his decision on Thursday.

"It's crazy," Torres told the paper late Monday. "It's been a dream of mine forever to go to Notre Dame. I've been to so many basketball games, so many soccer games."

Torres joins a top-five recruiting class for the Irish which features three ESPN 100 prospects including Jackson, SG Steve Vasturia (Medford, N.J./St. Joseph's) and SF V.J. Beachem (New Haven, Ind./New Haven).
