We take a look at the content so far from players in the Carolina's, a 2021 guard is heading West, former Clemson standout is heading home and NC State grabs a transfer with NC ties.
Pettiford to Big 12
Senior guard Bobby Pettiford out of South Granville (NC) High School has committed to Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks. Once part of the 2021 recruiting class at Louisville, Pettiford asked out and received his Letter of Intent from Louisville after the news of assistant coach's Dino Gaudio and Luke Murray's contracts were not renewed. So on the market Pettiford went and it didn't take long for Coach Self and his staff to get the job done.
Pettiford is a scorer that is strong and gets to his spots. He was named to the HoopSeen NCHSAA 2-A All-State team this season and led South Granville to the second round of the NCHSAA playoffs.
John Newman Coming Home
Clemson transfer John Newman has been a name to know in the Greensboro area of North Carolina for quite some time. The 6-foot-5 combo guard played at famed Greensboro Day before suiting up for the Tigers. After a season in which his playing time dwindled, Newman decided to transfer out of the program. He announced that he will be attending UNC-Greensboro next season and playing under Wes Miller back home in Greensboro. At Clemson this season, Newman averaged 3.7 points and 2.0 rebounds per game.
