On Thursday we had plenty of sports news from UNCW, plus the latest news concerning recent Laney grad Elijah Wilson.

Recent Laney High grad Elijah Wilson has committed to play college basketball at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC beginning in the fall of 2013. Wilson originally was scheduled to play basketball at the College of Charleston, but things didn't work out for Wilson in Charleston after the head coaching change several months ago. Prior to enrolling at Coastal Carolina Wilson is expected to attend Mount Zion Prep.

Wilson played high school basketball for Fred Lunch. Wilson played summer basketball for Flight 22 under current Laney head coach Nathan Faulk who recently replaced Lynch as the Bucs head coach.
