On Monday, N.C. State received a commitment from three-star forward Shaun King. It did not take long for Kentucky to muddle up this recruitment, offering King shortly after his decision. King did not sign anything tying him to the Wolfpack, and is reportedly weighing his options.

Former N.C. State star Julius Hodge is not happy about this develop, and took to Twitter to express his discontent. He doesn't specifically call out John Calipari, and denies that he is referring to Kentucky, but that is pretty clearly the target here.

Hodge has a point, and generally, college basketball recruiting does not get as cutthroat as college football does after commitments occur. However, it is up to Kirk to make the decision that is right for him, and if Kentucky causes him to reevaluate things, so be it.
