This Saturday night at 6pm, NC State 5 Star 2018 Shooting Guard target Keldon Johnson will be announcing his college decision.
The Wolfpack technically doesn’t have any more scholarships available in 2018, unless Omer Yurtseven leaves early or someone transfers. The likelihood of this happening on a yearly basis is pretty high. With that being said, for a player like Johnson, NC State will find a way to make room.
From the beginning, people thought he was a Texas lean. Johnson plays for Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, and the Longhorns head coach Shaka Smart is no stranger to Virginia, coaching VCU for years. Recently Kentucky has made a big push for Keldon as well, possibly taking the lead in the mind of some analysts. But don’t count out NC State. No one has recruited Johnson harder than they have, and according to our intel, his father would love for him to stay closer to home, and play at NC State, so he can attend all of his games.
