Saturday marked one of the most fruitful days NC State basketball recruiting has seen in recent memory. First, the Pack secured a commitment from UNCW wing transfer C.J. Bryce. An hour later, Utah guard transfer Devon Daniels jumped on board:

Daniels started 26 games as a freshman for the Utes this past season. He averaged 9.9 points per game on 57.1 percent shooting. However, he served a three-game suspension late in the season for “conduct detrimental to the team.”
The 6-5, 200-pounder will have to sit out next season as a transfer but will have three years of eligibility remaining after that.
The two newest pickups give new NC State coach Kevin Keatts four incoming transfers for next season. Two of those — guards Al Freeman (Baylor) and Sam Hunt (North Carolina A&T) — can play right away.
