Gilchrist to State? Not yet

<i>The Virginian-Pilot</i> learned a familiar lesson in the recruiting industry today.

The newspaper reported today that star point guard John Gilchrist, from Virginia Beach (VA) Salem, had committed to N.C. State, citing his high school coach.

However, several hours later they had to rewrite the story when Gilchrist said he's not yet ready to decide, but expects to know by the end of the weekend.

So, we have two possible scenarios ...

a) Gilchrist is still actively considering Georgetown and Maryland.

b) The coach wasn't supposed to drop the news yet, perhaps stealing Gilchrist's thunder, and the Wolfpack will have their point guard in the next few days.

The latter choice is much more likely. Since Indiana and Florida took commitments from other point guards, the Wolfpack have been atop Gilchrist's list -- and are the odds-on favorite.

Stay tuned ...
