Seymour guard Sandy Cohen is leaving his options open after Marquette coach Buzz Williams left the program for Virginia Teach last week.

Cohen tweeted Saturday, “I have been released of my NLI my window for recruitment is wide open.” However, none of the Marquette recruits have actually been released according to the university.

Cohen told FOX 11, “I’m actually keeping all my options open.”

Marquette University told Fox 11 on Sunday night that Cohen is still under the terms of his national letter of intent signed this spring.  Associate Athletic Director Scott Kuykendall said in an email that the University policy is that no player who has signed a letter of intent would be released at least until a new coach is hired.

The 6-5 guard signed with Marquette last fall, but had other offers from Auburn, Creighton, Iowa, Memphis, Minnesota, Providence, Purdue and Virginia, among others.

This past season, Cohen averaged 21.2 points per game to lead the Bay Conference and for his career he scored 1,289 points.
