NC State currently has eleven scholarships filled for the 2017-2018 season after Baylor grad transfer Al Freeman announced his intentions to transfer to NC State.  Here is a closer look at the Wolfpack's projected roster and depth chart.

2017-2018 Projected NC State Scholarship Roster

Here is an updated roster of the scholarship players following the Al Freeman announcement.

Terry Henderson G Grad. Neuse Christian Academy (Raleigh, N.C.) 6-5/190
A terrific perimeter shooter, Henderson has applied for a sixth year of eligibility.  It's encouraging that he's still listed on the Wolfpack's official roster and participating in team workouts.  He projects to be a major contributor in Kevin Keatts' system.
Lennard Freeman F R-Sr. Oak Hill (Washington D.C.) 6-8/267
A rugged forward, Freeman does all the dirty work for the Wolfpack. He redshirted last season and should be a major contributor as a senior.
Al Freeman G R-Sr. Baylor (Charlotte, N.C.) 6-3/200
A grad transfer, Freeman will give NC State a knockdown shooter who can make plays working off ball screens. He's a great fit for the Wolfpack's new offensive system.
Abdul-Malik Abu F Sr. Union Academy (Kimball, N.H.) 6-8/240
Abu has yet to announce if he will test the NBA draft waters but he seems high on the hiring of Kevin Keatts.  He could be one of the top frontcourt players in the ACC as a senior.
Torin Dorn G R-Jr. Vance (Charlotte, N.C.) 6-5/208
Dorn led Charlotte in scoring as a true freshman and transferred to NC State after the 2014 season. He played a reserve role last year but should be an ideal fit in NC State's four-out, one-in offense.
Shaun Kirk G/F Jr. 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.
Darius Hicks F Soph. 22 Feet Academy (Quitman, MS) 6-7/231
Capable of playing both forward positions, Hicks adds athleticism and versatility to the roster. Look for him to provide valuable depth as a sophomore.
Omer Yurtseven C Soph. Fenerbahçe (Istanbul, Turkey) 7-0/245
Yurtseven has announced that he will go through the draft process but won't sign with an agent.  He's reportedly participating in workouts and could return for his sophomore season.
Markell Johnson G Soph. East Tech HS (Cleveland, OH) 6-1/164
A dynamic athlete, Johnson can play both guard positions for the Wolfpack and should open the season as the starting point guard.  He has a chance to have a breakout year.
Ted Kapita F Soph. DME Academy (Kinshasha, DR Congo) 6-8/219
A high-energy player who rebounds extremely well and can score around the basket, Kapita could play a major role as a sophomore.
Lavar Batts Jr. G Fr. Robinson (Concord, N.C.) 6-2/185
Batts is the first commitment of the Kevin Keatts era.  A former VCU signee, he should play major minutes as a true freshman and is capable of playing on or off the basketball.
