Luke Cothron Enjoys ‘Red Rally’


Last week Luke Cothron made the announcement that he’ll be spending his college years at NC State. The 2010 commit is a highly touted 6’9 big man. His recent commitment solidified what was already a stellar recruiting class (Ryan Harrow, Lorenzo Brown) and he has been a fixture at NC State all year long. He’s taken in almost every home football game this season, but on Friday night he got to sit back and watch his future school open the 2009-10 season with the “Red Rally at Reynolds.” We checked in with Luke to see how he enjoyed his visit and what he thinks about this years team.

“It was real good, I had a good time. It was good to see the fans out there, and a lot of them were coming up to me and telling me how they can’t wait for 2010, saying that’s when NC State is going to turn the corner. I also thought it was pretty cool to hear some of the fans start chanting my name at the end. That meant a lot.”


While many are looking towards 2010 for the breakout season, this year’s Wolfpack team put on a very good showing, something Luke noticed and talked about.

“I thought Tracy looked real good and Scott (Wood) can really shoot it. I think they’re going to be good this year. I really do.”


Luke was on the court after the game talking to the coaches and was accompanied by another 2010 recruit, Tashawn Mabry. Mabry is a high energy player that is very athletic and very physical. He really broke out this summer at the Bob Gibbons AAU Tournament, which reignited his recruitment. The Pack is still hot on the heels of local superstar recruit CJ Leslie, who was scheduled to be at Kentucky’s Midnight Madness event Friday night.

Also attending the event was 2011 recruit Dezmine Wells who is high on the Pack’s radar and his fellow CP3 teammate, 2013 recruit Rodney Purvis. Purvis is only a freshman but is already starting to see his recruiting heat up. He has been in contact with the NC State staff and already holds an offer from VCU.

    I hope CJ did not go. It was quite a show. Of course all that is nice until they soon go on probation.

    We can confirm that CJ didn't go to the Kentucky's Blue Madness. I talked with a relative of Leslie on Friday night and he was expecting him to be there on his official visit. His absence at Blue Madness is interesting to say the least.
