RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – N.C. State junior guard Markell Johnson will test the NBA waters while still leaving the option open to play for the Wolfpack again.
The Cleveland native will undergo the evaluation process and have until May 29 to withdraw his name and retain eligibility.
“I fully support Markell going through this evaluation process and gathering additional information,” said NC State head coach Kevin Keatts. “Given the rules and options available to him, Markell is taking advantage of resources to ultimately make the most informed decision.”
Johnson sparked the Wolfpack to wins over Auburn with 27 points and helped them pull out two wins in the NIT.
He hit 68 three-pointers on the season and averaged 12.6 points per game.
Johnson has started 57 games and played in 89 total for the Pack.
