The Raleigh, North Carolina native is returning home.

West Virginia transfer guard Terry Henderson has committed to N.C. State, according to Jeff Ermann of InsideMDSports.com, who reported the news on Tuesday night.

The 6-foot-4 guard had cut his list to seven — Cincinnati, Maryland, N.C. State, Richmond, Rutgers, UCLA and Wake Forest — in late May, and scheduled visits to Maryland, UCLA and Wake Forest. At Maryland, he was courted by fellow Raleigh native, Dez Wells.

Henderson transferred following his sophomore season, and was the third leading scorer for the Mountaineers at 11.2 points per game. He was the second West Virginia guard to leave the program behind second-leading scorer Eron Harris. Earlier this month, Harris enrolled at Michigan State.

The 6-foot-4 Henderson will sit out next season, due to NCAA transfer rules and will have two remaining years of eligibility starting in the 2015-2016 season.

West Virginia missed the NCAA tournament for the second straight year. The program’s offseason didn’t get much better when sophomore guards Eron Harris and Terry Henderson, the team’s second and third leading scorers, respectively, decided to transfer out of Morgantown.

Henderson was the second of the two to leave the Mountaineers. Two weeks after making that announcement, Henderson has released the names of the seven finalists, and has set up multiple visits.

Cincinnati, Maryland, N.C. State, Richmond, Rutgers, UCLA and Wake Forest are all still in the hunt for Henderson’s services, he told Jeff Ermann of 247Sports.com on Friday afternoon.

According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com, Henderson plans to visit Maryland, N.C. State, Wake Forest and UCLA.

“I felt like those are the schools that will complement the way I play,” Henderson told 247Sports. “I’ll be able to get on the floor and do what I do best.

“Most of them are near, and even though UCLA is on the other side of the the country, it’s a city, which is what I like.”

Even though he will have to sit out the 2014-2015 season due to NCAA transfer rules, Henderson will be a boost to each team’s back court. Teams like Rutgers and Richmond will graduate their top scorers after next season while programs like Maryland and UCLA have each lost underclassmen to either transfers or the NBA Draft.

Henderson averaged 11.7 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game this past season as a sophomore for West Virginia.
