Atwood chooses ASU

Arizona State marked Willie Atwood final official recruiting trip last weekend, and five days it was also his ultimate choice picking that school over Iowa and Florida State at a ceremony at Connors College (Okla.) Thursday afternoon.

The 6-8 215-pound Willie Atwood averaged 20.8 points and 9.0 rebounds a game for Connors State in the 2013-14 season shooting just under 58 percent from the field.

"The coaches like my versatility and my aggressiveness on offense," Atwood said in an interview with us after his Arizona State visit. "They like how I can score in the post and also dribble, face up and shoot. They also like how I'm a high energy player who makes a lot of free throws. I like their (ASU's) scheme because they go up and down the court. Once you get the rebound you just go (laughs). That's the type of player I am – I'm always on the attack.

"The coaches made it known that I am a priority for them. You can tell they care a lot about their players not only on the court but off the court."

We will bring you an interview with Atwood as it becomes available.
