Devils in Regan's Top Three

Ever since ASU has been recruiting 6-8 215 Will Regan, the center has had the maroon and gold high on his list of suitors. After an impressive visit to Tempe that ended today, the Sun Devils remain one of the 2010 prospect's favorites. Devils Digest talked to Regan about his unofficial visit to ASU and offered his thoughts on his recruitment.

"It was a good visit," said Regan. "We got to see a lot of things, some crucial things like how the business school is and other things that will help my decision. It (ASU) is a real progressive school and I guess that surprised me a little. I like their honors school there."

"I like coach Sendek a lot and I think his style of play would fit me well. It's a program on the rise and it would be fun to play in it. With the way they run the floor their style would really fit my skills…style of play is gonna be a big factor in my decision"

Outside of Stanford and Oregon State, Arizona State is the furthest school from Regan's Buffalo, NY home that is recruiting him. Now that he got to travel to Tempe, he stated that the distance factor isn't something that will adversely impact his ultimate decision.

"I'm flying direct to and from home, so it's no big deal," he noted. "The travel is the same if you're flying for four hours or driving for four hours. It's pretty similar; you're still traveling for four hours."

Regan listed Michigan and Stanford as the other schools in his top three favorites. He would like to check out some of his other universities pursuing him, as well as schools he visited outside of session that he would like to re-visit in-session. "I'm gonna visit Notre Dame which I haven't seen yet, and some others," he commented.

Regan would like to make a decision in the summer of next year for various reasons. "As time goes on you look at all the schools recruiting you and when it's time to commit you can see who your coaching staff is gonna be," he explained, "know who your teammates will be. You just get to see how things will unfold, so that's why I want to wait."

"I'm looking for a school that would be in a good environment, that obviously has coaches and teammates I'll get along with. A school with good academics is important too."

As a sophomore Will Regan averaged 19 ppg and 14.5 rpg for Nichols High School, and was voted first team All-League and All-Area. The Vikings were 22-3 in the 2007-08 season and lost in the post-season finals. He lists his shooting and athleticism as his strong suits, and points out versatility and ball handling as areas he would like to improve on. In the off-season he plays for the Albany City Rocks AAU club

Prior to Arizona State (who offered in June), Maryland, Penn State, Fordham and Buffalo offered scholarships. Oregon State, St. John's and Virginia Tech have offered in recent months.
