It’s been a busy day for NC State basketball. Earlier on Wednesday, Missouri point guard Blake Harris announced he would transfer to NC State.
A few hours later, though, word broke that junior forward Shaun Kirk plans to transfer, too. Kirk, who hails from Whiteville, North Carolina, has been granted his release, and will transfer to UNC Pembroke.

Kirk was recruited to the school by former coach Mark Gottfried; the 6-foot-8 forward was a late addition to the 2015 class. He never saw much playing time in Raleigh — appearing in just 28 games (120 minutes) over his first two seasons.
In 2017-18, Kirk appeared in just five games for the Wolfpack. His most recent appearance came in the road loss to Notre Dame. Kirk will end his career at NC State with 46 points in 176 minutes.
