First Impression for Metu
"I didn't know what to expect," Metu said. "I've never been to a San Diego State game or even watched one of their home games on TV so it was crazy when I walked in there. Those fans are crazy. It was real fun."
The 6-foot-8, 200-pound prospect has been to a couple UCLA games and acknowledged the two venues "can't compare" because "it's crazy in Viejas."
The same can be said about the style of play.
"UCLA has more structure to the way that they play," Metu explained. "San Diego State just goes out there and plays. They are much more fun to watch."
"Their (SDSU) bigs are pretty versatile. Their offense is really open. It's not just one person getting a shot every time down the floor. Anybody can succeed in that."
Following the game the Los Angeles prep star was able to check out the locker room.
"That was really fun," Metu said. "I got a chance to meet coach (Tony) Bland, meet a couple of the players so that was really fun. It was real nice in there."
Metu already holds offers from Connecticut and Long Beach State. While UCLA, Washington and UNLV have all stopped by his high school this season.
"It's a process, makes you mature," Metu said of the recruiting process. "It's kind of stressful but at the same time I can't do anything about it.
Metu would "most definitely" like the Aztecs to begin to recruit him and wants to come to another game soon.
At the moment the sophomore is unsure how to describe his game because he feels like he's a work in progress.
"I don't really know," Metu said. "I want to be a swingman, three-four, or even sometimes at the one. But I'm really developing everything right now, my post game, ball handling, shooting and becoming more consistent."
