Coastal Carolina’s leading rebounder, Sam McLaurin, will be leaving Conway after starting for three years as a Chanticleer. McLaurin averaged 10 points and nearly 8 rebounds per game in the 2011-2012 season. He is also the school’s career leader in blocked shots.
“Ever since after last season, I’ve been talking it over with my family,” McLaurin said. “We all talked about it for a while. It was one of those things where we just had to say ‘Let’s wait and see. Let’s not rush into a decision. Let’s keep weighing the pros and cons.’ At the end of the season, I went back home, talked to my family and we pretty much came to the decision that this pretty much was the best thing for me.” via Myrtle Beach Online
