Lehigh Graduate Transfer Pat Andree Schedules Visit to NC State

Published

on

Last week news broke that NC State had reached out to Lehigh Graduate Transfer Pat Andree (6’8”/225). Evan Daniels reported today that Andree has scheduled a visit to NC State on April 12th.

Andree has also heard from Pittsburgh, Boston College, Wake Forest, TCU, Kansas State, Duquesne, Fordham, Illinois, Rutgers & USC. 

NC State is the first school that Andree has scheduled a visit with.

Andree was a 3-Star prospect coming out of high school (Christian Brothers Academy), and the #10 player in the state of New Jersey according to ESPN.

He has been a starter at Lehigh for the past two seasons, averaging 12.9 points and 6.2 rebounds as a Junior last year, shooting 41.9% from beyond the arch.

Adding Andree would give the Wolfpack two things they need…height and shooting.

Athlon released their 2019-20 College Basketball preview, and they predict that NC State’s Men’s Basketball team will finish 5th in the ACC this season.

  6. FSU
  7. Notre Dame
  8. Miami
  9. Syracuse
  10. Georgia Tech
  11. Clemson
  12. Boston College
  13. Wake Forest
  14. Pittsburgh
  15. Virginia Tech

Here’s a rundown of what they had to say about the Wolfpack.

  • Returning 6 of top 7 scorers from last year
  • Redshirt Junior D.J. Funderburk needs to rebound more consistently, and stay out of foul trouble.
  • The version of Senior Markell Johnson that finished the season will be needed for NC State to get back to the NCAA Tournament.
    • Needs to be a consistent leader and scorer.
  • Junior Braxton Beverly needs to figure out a way to run more hot than cold.
  • Consistency from Redshirt Junior Devon Daniels would go a long way.
  • Team should be back in the NCAA Tournament.
  • With a reloading year for Duke, UVA and UNC, Keatts will get few opportunities like this one.
