WHITEVILLE, NC (WECT) - Whiteville High School has announced that its star small forward Shaun Kirk has signed a national of letter of intent to play basketball at North Carolina State University.
Kirk verbally committed to the Wolfpack on Tuesday, but a phone call, and subsequent offer, from Kentucky Head Coach John Calipari left Kirk considering the Wildcats.
Calipari and N.C. State Head Coach Mark Gottfried were among a handful of coaches who saw Kirk take part in an AAU event in Indianapolis this past weekend.
Listed at 6'6", Kirk averaged 18 points, 5 rebounds and 5 blocks this past season for Whiteville. He has averaged 13.5 points and shot 64.5 percent from the field while playing for the Team Loaded travel squad in Adidas Uprising Gauntlet Series games
