Transfer to watch: SG Terry Henderson

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

It's early in the process, but NC State appears to have a decent shot at landing West Virginia transfer Terry Henderson, who is beginning to plan some visits. Henderson announced his intention to leave WVU earlier this month, which left Bob Huggins scrambling to try to talk him out of that decision.

The Mountaineers are down their second- and third-leading scorers (Henderson being the latter) from last season, for unclear reasons. Henderson's AAU coach called the environment within the WVU program "untenable," which fits virtually any conclusion you or I might want to make. My favorite thing about these situations is that it becomes this choose-your-own-adventure sideshow.

Bob Huggins killed a guy! Bob Huggins was killed by a guy! Bob Huggins killed a guy with kindness! There's really no telling which one of those stories is true.

In any event, Henderson has had enough, and he says he's wide open. Maryland sounds like it might be the team to beat, but he's also planning a lot of trips elsewhere:

There's plenty of competition for Henderson's signature. Already 15-plus schools have inquired, and he plans to visit UCLA along with likely trips to Wake Forest, N.C. State, Virginia, Miami and Richmond.

"I want to take all of my visits because out of high school I didn't really take all of my visits. I committed after my third visit," Henderson said.

Henderson was a three-star prospect out of high school. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
