NC State target: What UW-Milwaukee grad transfer Brock Stull could add to the Pack

Over the last few weeks, NC State has targeted multiple transfer prospects; two weeks ago, the Pack hosted Samford forward Wyatt Walker. Well, add another name to the list: University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee guard Brock Stull.

There are a few reasons why Stull would appeal to Kevin Keatts and NC State, including one in particular. With Sam Hunt departing the program, the Wolfpack is out one of its top perimeter shooter; Hunt was one of the best spot-up players in the ACC last season (1.34 points per possession).

Al Freeman is headed out of town; Omer Yurtseven is transferring to Georgetown. Those two combined for 92 three-pointers in 2017-18. Basically, NC State could use another shooter to line up around Markell Johnson pick-and-rolls.

Say hello to Brock Stull!

In 96 career games, Stull — who averaged 13.4 points in 2017-18 — has connected on 136 three-pointers. Over the last two seasons, Stull is shooting 38.5 percent from beyond the arc. This season, Stull launched over 10 three-point attempts per 100 possessions, per Sports Reference.

According to Synergy Sports, Stull scored 1.18 points per possession on spot-ups (62.7 eFG%), thanks in large part to his ability to shoot sans dribbles. (24 percent of Stull’s offensive possessions in 2017-18 were spot-ups.)

On catch-and-shoots, Stull shot 48.5 percent and scored 1.44 points per possession (71.7 eFG%), per Synergy. Amongst players with at least 75 catch-and-shoots last season, this ranked 21st in the nation.

The 6-foot4 Stull is a graduate transfer; he has one final year of eligibility, and would be good to play in the 2018-19 season.
