In the world of college sports recruiting, there are two levels of commitment: verbal and signed. High school players that won't start their collegiate careers until the fall of 2015 can only be verbally committed to their schools as of right now, and they're free to do whatever they want with that verbal commitment, including ending it whenever they choose.
That's what Nick Noskowiak did this morning.
My family and I have decided what's best for me is to open my recruitment up and keep my options open...I am no longer comitted to Marquette— Nick Noskowiak (@NickNoskowiak) April 2, 2014
Can't fault him at all, of course. He wanted to play for Buzz Williams, and honestly, I'm amazed he actually waited until after Steve Wojciechowski was hired to decommit.
Of course, there is this follow up tweet:
I think extremely highly of coach Wojciechowski and will consider Marquette with any other school that is interested in me...— Nick Noskowiak (@NickNoskowiak) April 2, 2014
And therein lies the rub. As an unsigned recruit, Noskowiak is more than able to listen to other offers, and with a change in coaching regime, it's hard to say for certain that Wojciechowski will even be interested in Noskowiak as a player. Since he's one of the top players in the country for 2015 that happens to be from the state of Wisconsin, I would guess that Wojciechowski would at least like to speak with Noskowiak at some point in the not too distant future.
Noskowiak will be able to sign a national letter of intent this coming November, so we'll see what happens.
