We may be turning the page to the doldrums of summer, but NC State’s 2014 recruiting class may not yet be completed.
West Virginia shooting guard, Terry Henderson, who played his high school basketball at Raleigh’s Neuse Christian Academy announced a couple of weeks ago that he was going to join the army of defections that Bob Huggins’s program has experienced in recent years and transfer from Morgantown. At 6’4″ and 200 pounds, Henderson averaged almost twelve points a game last year as a sophomore while continuing to exemplify the back of some impressive three point shooting (see statistics below). He was a listed as a three-star recruit out of high school and committed to WVU after only three official visits.
Henderson has announced that he has narrowed his list to seven schools and will take at least four visits.
Cincinnati, Maryland, N.C. State, Richmond, Rutgers, UCLA and Wake Forest are all still in the hunt for Henderson’s services, he told Jeff Ermann of 247Sports.com on Friday afternoon.

Henderson must sit out next season and will have to years of eligibility remaining. After sitting out next season, one could see Henderson becoming Mark Gottfried’s next “Scott Wood / Ralston Turner” position. This means that the Wolfpack still will only have ten scholarship players eligible next season and looks very thin at the point guard position.
