According to New Bern coach Chip Williams, Hardesty has been tight-lipped of late.
"Montario really didn't want to talk about it a whole lot, so that's where we are with what he's doing," Williams said. "I really can't say anything other than what's he's said with his commmitment and what he's told Carolina with where he stands ... and I'm really not sure what he's told them lately.
"Bottom line, I really can't say a lot about where he's standing right now."
The other school under consideration for Hardesty is Tennessee.
