Walk-on Spencer Newman will transfer from NC State

Published

on

Spencer Newman came to NC State as a walk-on, but there were initial thoughts that he could help the team as a spot shooter and possibly work his way into earning a scholarship.

That never happened and today we learned that he was granted his release from NC State and will be transferring. Here is his message to Wolfpack nation.

Newman was actually a pretty heralded high school player out of Bayside Academy in Alabama. He led his school in scoring as a freshman  (14ppg), went for 21 per game as a sophomore, 20 as a junior and 22 as a senior. All that scoring helped him break his high school’s record for most career points with 2,232.

In his first year with the Wolfpack, Newman was forced to redshirt after an injury in practice that cost him the season. In year two, under new head coach Kevin Keatts, he only logged 6 minutes on the season and was unable to record a basket.

Here’s to Spencer lancing somewhere he can get more minutes and flash that scoring ability he showed in high school.

Here are some highlights from Newman’s HS career…

    Will we even have any walk-ons next year? Seems like we’ve got 19 or 20 scholarship players lined up.

NC State Accepts Recommendation to Move Case to IARP

Published

on

NC State has accepted the recommendation to move their violation’s case from the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions to the Independent Accountability Resolution Process.

“We’ve stated throughout this process that NC State will accept accountability for any shortcomings and defend ourselves aggressively where we feel it is appropriate and necessary to do so,” Woodson wrote in a statement released by the school on Wednesday. “As our response to the Referral Petition demonstrates, we do not think NC State can receive an objective or fair hearing before the Committee on Infractions in this matter. We believe the only remaining option is that our case be moved to the Independent Accountability Resolution Process.

“NC State has a long history of working cooperatively with the NCAA, and we remain committed to working collaboratively through the IARP to address concerns and to resolve this matter as fairly and efficiently as possible.” (WRAL)

The IARP is made up of decision makers that are investigators and legal advocates that are independent of any NCAA teams.

The difference between the traditional process, and the IARP, is that the latter’s decision is final, unable to be appealed.
