You must not have been following the news that closely. There were 7 names that were mentioned more often than others in the leaks (one of whom being Sora) and According to the source, Erdrick's name was mentioned the most. The leakers only assumed that Erdrick was the SE rep because of how often his name was mentioned (although that could've changed since the time that info was released. I haven't really been keeping up with the news).
And another thing about the SE character rumor is that Square has been known to give people troll answers in order to prevent leaks in the first place. Like maybe they told a few people Geno was coming, and another few Erdrick was coming, and another few that Sephiroth was coming, etc. So who knows who the SE rep will be if there even is one, but no one is a solid lock right now
