Yesterday was brutal for NC State fans. First they learned that Trevor Lacey was going pro, then they find out Kyle Washington is transferring. So for all of you toeing the ledge right now, we have some recruiting news that will hopefully put you in a better mood.

According to Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog, Mark Gottfried is in Greece looking for a commitment from 7 foot center Georgios Papagiannis.

Now, I’m not going to act like I’ve seen anything more than a few videos, but this kid is legit. In fact, there are a few coaches that think he’s a potential one and done type guy (From the videos I’m not buying that). He’s 7’1, has a good frame, is bouncy, coordinated, can handle it a bit and can shoot it. Gott is trying to lock him up and is likey the first coach to go over to visit him.

He is also looking at St. John’s, Temple, Oregon, Kentucky and UConn. He is expected to make a decision by June but Gottfried is surely hoping to come home with one in a few days.

Wolfer96 Any rumors about the trip to Greece?  Gott is said to be  talking to Ingram today.  Kind of a short trip overseas.

wolfpack74 Wolfer96 I wouldn’t think that Gott would be all the way over there if there wasn’t some chance of bringing the guy. Or maybe Gott is going to be seeing many european players while he’s over there. 

Personally, I wouldn’t mind establishing a good network into europe to keep the players flowing in. In general they seem to have better fundamentals than kids here. It’s not like we haven’t had foreign players before (Evtimov, Atsur, Vandy).

Wolfer96 wolfpack74 Was Gott going to drug him and bring him back on a plane or in the cargo area of a supertanker?  We need some good news for a change.

wolfpack74 most likely not one and done caliber. And if you’re not a top player in europe I would imagine you would get more exposure playing college ball in the US.

He’s a long shot at best.  Rivals does not show any interest in NCState before this magic carpet ride by Gott.  What about getting us a good PG to backup CAT?  He didn’t seem too upset about getting rid of Kyle, so why a big now.  If he is a one and done style player, why come back to the United States.  Just play one year in Europe and then transition to the NBA after that.

I’m imagining this kid and Anya on the court at the same time and we would call them the long arms of the law.

Pack fans going to love the addition of 2025 4-star SG RJ Greer

Published

on

As you’ve probably heard, Top-100 SG, RJ Greer, announced his commitment to NC State yesterday.

The 2025, 6’4 guard is exactly the piece that NC State fans have been clamoring for Keatts to add.

Greer is 6’4 (and maybe still growing), is starting to fill out his frame, and is a pure shooter with great form, high IQ and comes from a winning program. This past year he led his HS team to the D2 State Title, earning a bunch of accolades along the way. Adding to that, Greer’s father is Ricardo Greer, former Pitt forward who averaged 15ppg over his college career.

RJ Greer was named District 15 Underclassman of the year, D2 All Southwest Ohio First Team, and All Ohio Second Team. He was recruited heavily by Cincinnati, Florda and Dayton, but chose NC State thanks to the freedom Keatts gives his guards.

Greer is an elite spot shooter, but he’s also able to create for himself on occasion. He’s the most ‘Scott Wood’ recruit NC State has landed since the prolific 3-pt shooter left the Pack in 2013.

With Greer and Paul McNeil (who will be a sophomore when Greer arrives), NC State will have some tall, long, dead-eye shooters roaming around the preimeter next season, and that’s something NC State fans have been very vocal about wanting over the past 10 years.

Greer’s announcement is coming off of his Official Visit to Raleigh this past weekend. He chose to Run with the Wolfpack over a Top-4 that included NC State, Penn State, Cincinnati and the NBL.

This past season, Greer led his Archbishop Alter (Dayton, Ohio) to the state championship, and earned 2nd Team All-State honors. Greer averaged 16 points per game as a Junior.

247Sports ranks Greer as the #100 overall player nationally in the 2025 recruiting class, and the #3 player in the state of Ohio.
