NCAA Basketball: CSU Northridge at Boise State Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

NC State is one of a handful of schools being considered by Cal State Northridge graduate transfer point guard Kendall Smith, per Jon Rothstein. Smith reportedly plans to visit Colorado, Oklahoma State, and Butler, but hasn’t set up a visit with NCSU at this point.

Smith began his career at UNLV but left for Northridge, where he’s been a signficant contributor for two seasons. Now he’s hittin’ the ol’ upgrade button again, and why not, he’s coming off a career season.

As a junior, he averaged 16.8 points, 4.8 assists, and 4.0 rebounds per game. He was a solid 34.5% three-point shooter in 2017, though less than a third of his shots came from outside. He did a nice job getting to the free throw line, where he shot nearly 78%.

He’ll be a nice add for some high-major, especially if he can maintain the strong two-point shooting (49%) he displayed last season.
