Cothron opens it up

Four-star prospect Luke Cothron has been considered a soft commitment to North Carolina State, but now the 6-foot-8, 210-pound power forward is officially decommitted.
Cothron, an Alabama native who is now at Red Springs (N.C,) Flora Macdonald Academy, has opened up his recruitment and is likely headed elsewhere than NC State.
"When I committed I rushed into my decision," said Cothron. "I never got to look at other schools, and I just want to make the best decision because this is my future, and I don't want to have any regrets."
