Notes: NC State has landed a signature from Whiteville (NC) standout wing Shaun Kirk, one of the top athletes in the state.
Kirk was playing on the AAU circuit with Team Loaded, where he continued to pick up scholarship offers from programs like VCU, Memphis, and Baylor among others. He added an offer from NC State on Monday and committed to the in-state Wolfpack. Shortly after picking State he added an offer from Kentucky and considered it for a couple of days before signing with NC State.
"I'm very excited to have Shaun join our program," head coach Mark Gottfried said. "He has tremendous upside. I love how hard he plays, and as a perimeter player, he has great length. He has improved every time I watched him play, and he is a player who is committed to getting better."
Kirk averaged 18 points, five rebounds and five blocks per game for Whiteville High School as a senior. He was averaging 13.5 points per game for Team Loaded NC at the Adidas Uprising Gauntlet Series event.
