NC State basketball recruiting: Terry Henderson planning to visit NC State

Scott Sewell-USA TODAY Sports

Shooting guard Terry Henderson, a West Virginia transfer with two remaining years of eligibility, trimmed his list of potential landing spots to seven last week, and according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman, he's planning visits to four of them: NC State, Maryland, Wake Forest, and UCLA.

Location might play some factor in Henderson's decision but doesn't sound like it'll be a deal-breaker in any case:

Henderson's father recently moved from Raleigh back to his native Glen Burnie, Md., and the younger Henderson is familiar with the area. But that won't be a major factor in his decision, he said.

"Yes and no. Not really, because I think I did fine at West Virginia. I don't really get homesick like that, and if I did, it would be for Raleigh," he said.

Henderson averaged close to 12 points per game as a sophomore last season, and if he's proven one thing in two years at the college level, it's that he can score efficiently: he shot 37.6% from three-point range last year, to go with 50% shooting inside the arc, and 84.8% shooting at the line. He hit 40% of his threes, 48.7% of his twos, and 77.1% of his free throws in his freshman season. No wonder he's getting plenty of interest from plenty of power-conference programs.

NC State has been trying seemingly all off-season to add another piece to its back court. A couple of high school options--Devonte Graham and Shelton Mitchell--ultimately didn't work out, and the staff also missed on Maryland transfer Seth Allen, who is headed to Virginia Tech. Maybe this time's the time!
