Wertz, who hails from Charlotte, led Santa Clara rotation players in assist rate (26.2 percent) and effective shooting (57.6 eFG%).
Several ACC programs have also inquired, though; North Carolina, Virginia Tech and Clemson reached out, too. Outside of the ACC, other power programs contacted Wertz as well: Oklahoma, Cincinnati, Creighton, Arizona and Rutgers.
Wertz told Pack Pride that Kevin Keatts was the first coach from NC State he spoke with. By the end of the phone call, Wertz had an offer from NC State.
