Cullen Neal

Albuquerque Journal hacked? Altered? Whatever

When Noodles Neal took over New Mexico after Steve Alford left for UCLA, the attention immediately turned to his son, Cullen Neal. Neal, a national top 150 player, is considered by most to be the top senior in New Mexico prep basketball. He signed with St. Mary's during the early signing period. There have been plenty of rumors about him getting out of that commitment and signing to play for his father at New Mexico.

Cullen Neal hasn't said anything one way or another to stop the rumors. He said he'd love to play for both schools.

Last night, during the National Title game, the Albuquerque Journal ran a story that he was indeed headed to the Lobos. But once you read the story, you can see that the paper's website was hacked. Or replicated and altered. Whatever it was, it wasn't real.
