Maryland target Terry Henderson commits to NC State

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

West Virginia transfer chose the Wolfpack over the Terps.

Former West Virginia guard Terry Henderson has pledged to North Carolina State, according to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.


He narrowed his list of potential landing spots to three last week, but the Pack beat out Maryland and Richmond. It may come to a surprise that Henderson forwent Maryland's offer, after he called his June 8 trip to College Park "a great visit."

The rising junior will have to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules but the year will serve as a redshirt season for Henderson. The 6'4'', 200 pound Raleigh native was West Virginia's third leading scorer last year, averaging 11.7 points per contest. .

Maryland's pursuit of a 13th and final scholarship slot is almost closed for the 2014 season, with Andrew White as the only known target left. The two guard position still seems to be in decent shape for the Terps looking ahead to the 2015 season, with Dion Wiley and Jake Layman highlighting the slot, but losing out on Henderson is nonetheless a disappointment. Here's a look at potential players who can fill the void at the point guard position from the class of 2015.

Editor's Note (Andrew): I've said all along that you absolutely take a player like Henderson if he wants to come, but as a player he would have been a luxury addition. They'll still have some good depth at shooting guard and it isn't nearly the position of need as point guard and forward. As Grant mentioned, this probably ends the roster movement for this off-season. We'll talk about it more as the summer and fall progress, but Henderson's decision, along with the recent 2015 shooting guard offers extended by the Terps staff, probably mean that the 2015 class will consist of a point guard, at least one wing, a forward and possibly a big man. They'll have at least five scholarship openings, but I don't think all five will be filled with 2015 freshmen.
