Brad Brownell’s outstanding recruiting class at UNC-Wilmington just got a little deeper and a lot bigger. This week, the Seahawks added a transfer from an ACC program.

Todd Hendley, a 6-9 freshman, was part of Wake Forest’s run to the Sweet 16 where it lost to Jameer Nelson and St. Joseph’s. A week ago, it was announced that Hendley would transfer out of Wake and be looking elsewhere.

On Monday, it was announced that Hendley would transfer and sit out next season at UNC-Wilmington.

“They first recruited me in the 10th grade,” Hendley said. “I know the coaching staff really well and I know the players well.”

Hendley played in 16 games for the Deacons last season. His size will be a huge asset in the Colonial Athletic Association. He becomes the fourth player to enlist with the Seahawks this season and joins an already strong recruiting class.

Next year’s roster will include a trio of highly-regarded mid-major prospects. Vladimir Kuljanin, a 6-10 center out of Toronto was the first to commit last fall. He was quickly joined by Woodbridge shooting ace Daniel Fountain and Sioux City, Iowa, small forward Dylan Grimsley. The 6-4 Grimsley was a starter on the Martin Bros. team that finished second at the AAU Nationals.

Hendley meanwhile, will sit out next season per transfer rules. “Sitting out is going to kill me but I think I’ll mature as a player and I’ll be ahead of everyone else.”
