On Wednesday, Sidney Lowe inked two of his three big time commits for 2010. Ryan Harrow signed his LOI in front of a packed house in Raleigh, at Sammy's Tap and Grill, while Lorenzo Brown joined his Hargrave teammates in their signing day festivities in Virginia. That leaves only one commit that has yet to make it official, 2010 power forward, Luke Cothron. Rumors leaked about Cothron signing in the early period after he initially committed, but this week the big man changed his mind and informed numerous sources that he will, in fact, wait until the spring period to sign.
We spoke with Luke on Wednesday night to find out more about the situation.
"I think I'm just going to sign in the late period." said Luke. When asked if there was any particular reason, Luke stated that he just wanted to wait before he signed an LOI. "Oh yeah, I'm still 100% committed to NC State. No doubt." said Cothron when asked where his commitment stands.
We will be keeping you updated all season long on Luke's season and his recruitment, but at this point there doesn't seem to be any reason for State fans to worry, as he was adamant about still being committed to the Pack. In his first game of the season, Flora MacDonald came up a bit short against national powerhouse, Oak Hill Academy. Luke, however, filled the State sheet in impressive fashion, pouring in 42 points and pulling down 12 rebounds.
We'll have more on Luke in the near future.
