Luke Cothron: Profile

Height: 6'9
Weight: 220
Position: PF
Class: 2010
Team: Flora MacDonald (Red Springs, NC)
Stars: Scout and Rivals - 5 Stars (Scout #16, Rivals #17)
Status: Prospect
Offers: NC State, UCONN, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee, Georgetown, Florida State, Florida, Oklahoma State, Virginia, Alabama, Arkansas, Virginia Tech, UAB, Auburn, Cincinnati
AAU Team: Boo Williams


Take a quick glance at Cothron's offer list and you begin to wonder...who hasn't offered Luke Cothron? Luke is a 6'9 'big' who literally fills the roll of the point guard from time to time on his high school and AAU squad. He has no problem putting the ball onto the floor. He has reminded many recruiting analysts of Pervis Ellison with his game and his a haircut. Luke has very good footwork in the post and has a fairly mature post-game repertoire for his age. He has a nice touch around the basket and he also has a nice stroke on his jump shot. Cothron isn't the least bit shy when it comes to poppin from behind the arch. His height and length make him a dangerous shot blocker and a vacuum for rebounds. Cothron was the definition of production this past season for Flora MacDonald. He averaged a ridiculous double-double of 30 points and 20 rebounds a game. Coach Lowe personally offered this young man a scholarship after the Maryland game this season. Luke also made it to the game vs. UNC earlier in the season. The fact that he is familiar with some of the soon-to-be Pack players definitely doesn't hurt our chances. He has played against Richard Howell and Lorenzo Brown and speaks very highly of their ability. The addition of Cothron would put together a ridiculous class in 2010.

    All the makings of a top five class as far as the early groundwork by Lowe and Co. As always it will take being how well we close with Cothron and how well we keep Leslie feeling the love. Mad and fierce competition out there that we will be up against- but I know Sid is up to the challenge and that I can come to this site get some knowledge and come away feeling like someone still has the faith and the dream.

    Keep it up.

    Your sight is looking right. Keep up the good work with all the news on the recruiting trail for NC State. I've recommended your site to many, and think you have one of the best out there.
