UPDATE: Cohen has NOT been released from his letter of intent, as reported by Michael Hunt & the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Marquette policy is to not release anyone until the recruits speak with the new coach.
It was going to happen, it was only a matter of time.
I have been released of my NLI my window for recruitment is wide open— Chief Cohen ▲ (@SandyCohenIII) March 23, 2014
Straight from the man himself, so no need to try to figure out what's going on. Sandy Cohen is the first of Marquette's four class of 2014 recruits to ask for and receive his release from his national letter of intent.
As Mr. Kensington said earlier today, it doesn't matter. Marquette's futures do not swing on Cohen, or any other recruit, or even group of recruits. We want guys coming to Marquette who want to come to Marquette, and with Cohen not waiting to see who the 17th Marquette head coach will be, it's clear that his heart isn't set on going to college in downtown Milwaukee.
That's fine. Please don't be mean to him on Twitter as a result of this. Cohen's a 17 or 18 year old kid, trying to make the best decision for his future. Best of luck to him in his future endeavors.
More as it happens, of course, and traffic and weather on the sevens...
