A few hours after Sacha Killeya-Jones pledged to NC State, the Wolfpack received additional recruiting news. Saddiq Bey, a 4-star small forward (a top 130 prospect) from the Washington D.C. area, signed with NC State last November. However, on Tuesday evening, Bey and NC State mutually agreed to part ways.
According to a report from 247 Sports, Bey is expected to be granted his release later this week.
And here's the answer, from NC State:
"Saddiq Bey has asked for his release from his national letter of intent and we are in the process of granting his request (cont.)."

This decision, of course, comes a day after NC State landed FIU grad transfer Eric Lockett. It certainly seems possible that these two events could be related. Regardless, the Pack has a surplus of wing players on the roster, which should help further unlock the switchy defense of Kevin Keatts.
