NC State men’s basketball continued to expand its transfer portal big board this week when it reached out to Wofford freshman guard Jackson Paveletzke. The Wolfpack appears interested in adding a guard in the offseason, and Paveletzke told On3’s Joe Tipton that he is hearing from the ACC program.

During his first season with Wofford, he started all 33 games and was named the Southern Conference’s freshman of the year. Paveletzke finished second on the team in scoring at 15.1 points per game and dished out 3.7 assists per game as well. The 6-3 guard showed the ability to score at all three levels, shooting 49.4 percent from the field and 39.3 from deep.

A lengthy list of high major programs have reached out to Paveletzke, per Tipton:

  • Gonzaga
  • Arkansas
  • Clemson
  • South Carolina
  • Oklahoma
  • Ohio State
  • Wisconsin
  • Penn State
  • Illinois
  • Iowa State
  • Oregon State
  • Nebraska
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • NC State
  • Stanford
  • Georgia
  • LSU
  • USC
  • Vanderbilt
  • San Francisco
  • Drake
  • Bradley

Paveletzke is not the only athlete from Wofford receiving Wolfpack interest, as Tipton previously reported NC State has been in contact with B.J. Mack as well.

The 6-8 power forward averaged 16.6 points per game for the Terriers and led the Southern Conference in scoring. He also grabbed 5.6 rebounds per game, dished out 1.4 assists per game and showcased some shooting ability from the perimeter at 33.5 percent.

This quote is from women’s basketball head coach Wes Moore discussing the program’s upcoming NCAA Tournament run.

“It’s been a little bit of a roller coaster this year, especially in conference play, but it doesn’t matter now,” Moore said. 

“We’ve got one last chance to make a positive statement, so that’s what we’ve got to try to go out and do.”
