Published

on

With the commitment of UKMC Graduate Transfer Danny Dixon today, and the recent commitment of JUCO Transfer Atticus Taylor, here’s a look at NC State’s projected 2019-20 Men’s Basketball roster.

1-Year of Eligibility Left

  • Senior Point Guard Markell Johnson
  • Redshirt Senior Guard CJ Bryce
  • Graduate Senior Power Forward Pat Andree
  • Graduate Senior Center Danny Dixon

2-Years of Eligibility Left

  • Junior Guard Braxton Beverly
  • Junior Point Guard Blake Harris
  • Redshirt Junior Guard Devon Daniels
  • Redshirt Junior Forward DJ Funderburk
  • Redshirt Sophomore Guard Thomas Allen (Transferred from Nebraska. Has to sit out a year due to transfer rules)

3-Years of Eligibility Left

  • Sophomore Forward Jericole Hellems
  • Sophomore Forward Atticus Taylor

4-Years of Eligibility Left

  • Redshirt Freshman Forward Manny Bates
  • Freshman Guard Dereon Seabron
  • Freshman Guard Jalen Lecque

If you did the math, that’s 14 scholarship players, and there’s only 13 available.

According to Joe Giglio of the News & Observer, 2019 4-Star Point Guard signee Jalen Lecque is likely to stay in the NBA Draft.

If Lecque does in fact remain in the 2019 NBA Draft, NC State will be back to 13 scholarships.

Giglio also said that Senior Point Guard Markell Johnson is academically eligible heading into next season. Not only is Johnson going through the NBA Draft Evaluation Process, but his academics had been in question.

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.

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.
