NCAA Basketball: Charleston Southern at Virginia Tech Michael Shroyer-USA TODAY Sports

Graduate transfer Charleston Southern guard Christian Keeling announced on Twitter Sunday night that he is down to five potential destinations: NC State, UNC, Clemson, Georgia Tech, and Purdue. Keeling led the Buccaneers in scoring this season at 18.7 per game.

Roy Williams has been uncharacteristically active on the grad transfer market this season—has he ever brought one in before?—which, frankly, is annoying. Quit recruiting the guys that NC State is also recruiting, Roy!

Anyway, Keeling is likely going to be an impact scorer wherever he ends up. He’s been a high-workload player since the beginning of his college career, and he just wrapped up his best season, posting a 56.2 effective field goal percentage.

Not surprisingly, he’s a good outside shooter. Kevin Keatts would really like to add one of those. Keeling made 39.9% of his threes this season and also made over 52% of his twos, which is a strong effort considering he attempted 27% of the shots while on the floor.

He’s also an impressive rebounder for his size at the defensive end, which helped him average 6.9 rebounds per game in 2019.
