NC State has been hoping to get a look from former Cal Bears guard Jordan Mathews ever since he announced he was leaving Berkeley. According to ESPN's Jeff Goodman, State is getting its chance. Mathews is set to visit NCSU on June 16 and Gonzaga on June 24, Goodman is reporting.
Mathews averaged 13.5 points per game as a junior last season. He is a graduate transfer and can play immediately. He was an excellent outside shooter throughout his three years at Cal and is a career 41.7% three-point shooter. Mathews has been an efficient contributor despite a higher-than-average workload, so it's no wonder he is such a coveted transfer target.
Unfortunately for the Wolfpack, Mathews is a west coast kid and Gonzaga has been considered the favorite to land him from the start. I'm not sure that has or will change, but at least the Wolfpack coaches will get to make their pitch in person.
