C.J. Leslie Pulls Verbal Commitment

We received word from a person who works directly with Word of God and D-One sports last night that C.J. Leslie has officially decommitted from the Pack and has reopened his recruitment. He said that C.J. had called him around 9pm last night to give him the news. State fans were aware for quite sometime that this might be a possibility and there have been grumblings about it on message boards for awhile.

We talked to a source very close to the program a couple weeks back about the possibility of this happening. He told us that this might happen but many people close to the situation still feel strongly that C.J. will end up with the Pack. He also said that a huge X-Factor in this whole thing is the fact that C.J.'s Mom feels very strongly about him attending NC State. Remember, C.J. never really got to experience the 'recruiting hoopla' due to his early verbal commitment to the Pack. While this definitely doesn't fall under the category of 'good news,' we are not shocked by this. There is obviously a chance that Leslie could play elsewhere; but, call me optimistic, I think that there is a good chance that he still ends up at State.

    everyone had a good feeling about Cousins and Favors and that didn't work out.
    I don't think Leslie is going to com here. After Wall goes to Memphis for one year, has a successful season and goes number one in the draft, Leslie will try to follow in his steps.

    MUST HAVE PG. '10 recruit class has Harrow. If Leslie thinks that College basketball 2010 isn't PG dominated then he is not getting a view point from Word of God that is beneficial which would be ironical seeing that the best in the land is running with him.

    With Sid/Towe/Stickland teaching Harrow and Zo learning all the tricks from '09- your going to see big men at State getting something we haven't seen in a long while (Gug's, Washburn, Bailey?) and that is easy buckets. No more having to watch our PF/C get double and triple teamed before they even get a good grip on the ball- teams are going to be scared $h^tless of having the pants around they're ankles after Zo or Ryan take it by.

    If CJ thinks that he coulod do w/o that they he will do just that and continue drifting away. Sorry buddy, hope it's no big deal having to play against us and wonder if you should prioritize in helping of you man to stop our guards penetrating or taking the some physical punishment from Tracy and Sir Richard.
