Mabry still undecided

Rocky Mount senior basketball star Tashawn Mabry still hasn't decided on which college he will attend next year.

But one thing is for certain. It will not be N.C. State.

I saw Mabry earlier this week and he told me that State hasn't shown any interest in him of late, so the Wolfpack is off his radar.

Mabry, in an interview with Rocky Mount alum Jason Jordan in a posted online interview this summer, stated that he would make his college decision before the start of school.

Of course, that deadline has come and long gone. Now he says he's not in any hurry to make a decision and very well may not sign until this spring.

LSU, Clemson and Miami are high on his list, but none of the N.C. big boys are on his list - namely UNC or Wake Forest. He still has five official visits to make.

The 6-foot-6 forward will become the school's all-time leading scorer - possibly before the Christmas break. Former Gryphon super guard Phil Ford has held the record for 35 years at 2,093 points!

He did it in three seasons, while Mabry will do it in about three and a half. But by the time he's finished, it may be another 35 years before anyone touches his record.

An update to this is that I ran into Tashawn's mother Latanya a few days after seeing him and she says he will have his mind made up by the start of basketball season.

We will see!
