Evan Cole is a wing/forward in the 2017 class who had been committed to Kevin Keatts at UNC-Wilmington. He re-opened his recruitment a couple of weeks ago and now holds offers from NC State, Clemson, Georgia Tech, and Georgia, among others.
Cole will be on an official visit to NC State this weekend. He has plans for more visits but his relationship with Keatts could prove a decisive factor in his decision.
Cole fits what Keatts wants to do; he will spread the floor because he’s a good jump shooter, and those types are in short supply right now. Cole is listed as a forward but he’s much more of a wing player, which is fine. We’re gonna need a couple extra dudes that can make three-pointers. Cole would be a good start.
Good player, good jump shooter. Next season is not going to be easy, but any amount of shooting help that comes will be appreciated.
