A false report surfaced on Twitter and a few other websites today reporting that 2012 Marquette commit Aaron Durley was planning to head to a Junior College in 2012 instead of enrolling at Marquette. Mark Strotman over at Paint Touches was quick to investigate this report and get quotes from the Durley family, including Aaron himself, that disputed this report. Here are a few of the highlights:
“This article is far from true,” Durley said in an email. “From the horse’s mouth, I assure you that I will be at Marquette University in the fall.”
Durley’s mother informed the Marquette coaching staff after the original report was published, saying that neither she nor Aaron would do or say anything negative or hurtful toward Marquette.
“I have never waivered on Aaron’s decision to attend Marquette,” Dana [Durley] said. “He is fully committed.”Good news for the Marquette faithful that the 6'11" center will be enrolling in 2012. Here's a link to Mark Strotman's full article: Paint Touches Refutes Durley Report
