This was an interesting ride.
It has been announced (click here) that former NC State Basketball commitment and Top 50 national recruit, Luke Cothron, has failed to academically qualify for the upcoming season.
You probably remember that Cothron originally committed to NC State about a year ago and then de-committed during his senior year in high school (not to a lot of surprise).
It is very interesting to click here and review both the titles and the timeline of topics related to Cothron on our message boards. Additionally, you can click here for previous blog entries tagged with Luke Cothron.
We gotta give some credit where it is due…take a look at the second comment to our original announcement of Cothron’s commitment on October 9th. This is why we encourage you to check our comments and message boards all of the time. (Link)
