Top Transfer C.J. Bryce Following Kevin Keatts From UNC-Wilmington To N.C. State

UNC-Wilmington's C.J. Bryce will be following former Seahawks coach Kevin Keatts to N.C. State.

Bryce, who averaged 17.4 points per game for the Seahawks last season, told ESPN's Jeff Goodman that he will be making the move to the Wolfpack.

The decision comes just minutes after Bryce told Goodman that he was down to N.C. State and South Carolina, and would be deciding today. Apparently "later today" meant seven minutes later. Earlier in the week, Bryce was considering a late visit to Gonzaga, but now it sounds like he'll be staying in North Carolina.

The 6-foot-5 Bryce will have to sit out a year, but has two years of eligibility remaining after that. He and Keatts led UNC-Wilmington to a 29-win season, and a No. 12 seed in the NCAA Tournament, where the Seahawks nearly upset No. 5 seed Virginia in the first round, falling 76-71.

This could wind up being an even bigger day for Keatts. The Wolfpack are also contenders for Utah transfer Devon Daniels, who will reportedly decide today. Daniels is down to the Wolfpack and San Diego State.

Keatts has some rebuilding to do in Raleigh, but today has to be an encouraging one for fans of the 'Pack.
