NC State in the mix to land 2018 SF Emmitt Matthews Jr

A few days ago news broke that 3-star SF Emmitt Matthews Jr, who was headed to UConn, had decommitted.

Over the weekend we learned that NC State was one of the teams in the mix to land him.


With Omer Yurtseven confirming that he won’t be coming back to NC State, Kevin Keatts has a scholarship available and right now, Matthews Jr. is one of the better kids out there who is still available.

NC State has a pretty good group of 6’7 wings right now, but if you saw Keatts’ teams play at UNCW, you know this is the type of guy he likes. Big enough to guard the post, but quick enough to guard on the perimeter. Matthews Jr. is a lefty with a nice touch and a great motor. He has a nice mid-range game and is crafty in the paint. Take a look (video above)
