Sacha Killeya-Jones, who played high school ball in Chapel Hill, is heading back home, more or less: he’ll play for Kevin Keatts at NC State.

Not next year - he’ll have to sit out for a year unless the NCAA changes the transfer rule this summer and allows immediate eligibility, which is possible.

Assuming he does sit out, it gives him a year to work on his slender body which will help him enormously.
