2016-2017 Projected NC State Scholarship Roster
Here is an updated roster of the scholarship players following Caleb and Cody Martin's decision to transfer.
|Terry Henderson||SG/SF||R-Sr.||West Virginia (Raleigh, N.C.)||6-5/195|
|A very good perimeter shooter, Henderson is expected to play major minutes at shooting guard after missing virtually all of his junior year.|
|BeeJay Anya||C||Sr.||DeMatha Cath. (Hyattsville, MD)||6-9/285|
|The ACC's top shotblocker, BeeJay Anya needs to step up his game on both ends of the floor as a senior.|
|Lennard Freeman||F||Sr.||Oak Hill (Washington D.C.)||6-9/250|
|A rugged forward, Freeman does all the dirty work for the Wolfpack. The hope is he can recover from his lingering leg injury.|
|Abdul-Malik Abu||PF||Jr.||Union Academy (Kimball, N.H.)||6-8/240|
|Abu emerged as a sophomore, averaging nearly 14 points and nine rebounds on 51% shooting from the field during ACC play. He has declared for the NBA draft but is expected to return to school.|
|Torin Dorn||G||R-Soph.||Charlotte (Charlotte, N.C.)||6-6/205|
|Dorn led Charlotte in scoring as a true freshman and transferred to NC State after the 2014 season. He sat out last year due to NCAA rules and turned heads with his play in practice. He's expected to be a major contributor.|
|Maverick Rowan||G/F||Soph.||Cardinal Gibbons (Ft. Lauderdale, FL)||6-7/215|
|A prolific scorer, Rowan is a dangerous 3-point and mid-range shooter. He struggled shooting it consistently as a freshman but is expected to play a major role as a sophomore.|
|Shaun Kirk||G/F||Soph.||Whiteville (Whiteville, N.C.)||6-8/195|
|Kirk is a high-flying athlete who is still developing his basketball skills but has a high upside. He can hit open 3-pointers and finish at the rim, but is still developing his ball-handling and mid-range game. Kirk should provide much-needed depth this season.|
|Dennis Smith Jr.||PG||Fr.||Trinity Christian HS (Fayetteville, N.C.)||6-2/185|
Smith, arguably the top incoming point guard in the country, will run the show after sitting out the spring semester to rehab his knee injury.
