We just told you that, 2010 NC State Recruit, Luke Cothron will be transferring up north to Durham Academy in Connecticut. So, what does this mean for NC State? Many media sources have made this out to be a big blow to the recruiting efforts of the Wolfpack, and a big plus for northern schools such as UCONN. We spoke with Luke to clear some of those questions up and let him talk about the move.
I am moving to a new school. It's called Durham Prep in Durham, Connecticut. As far as what would change with my recruitment is that I will now get to see a few more schools up North like UCONN, but as far as NC State is concerned, it has really impressed me and I still really like State a lot.
We'd also like to clear up a conflicting report that Cothron has now played at five different schools, when the correct number is four. Luke has played at Butler High, Nashville Christian, Flora MacDonald and now Durham Prep.
NC State is still hot on Cothron's trail and will continue to pursue the highly touted big man. We'll keep you updated on Luke's status throughout the season.
