Matthews expanding his game

2015 guard Charles Matthews can play numerous positions. Read on to see which one Arizona wants him at, the other schools recruiting him, and more.

Chicago St. Rita guard Charles Matthews has used the summer to improve and show his ability to play both guard positions.

He has excelled at both, so it is not a surprise to see that the 2015 guard's recruitment has picked up as of late.

"My newest offers are probably Michigan State, Ohio State, Kentucky, and a bunch of others," Matthews said. "I'm not really sure. I would not say it has been overwhelming. This is what I trained for and I know that since they are coming, I need to keep improving."

As the 6-foot-4, 185-pound five-star talks to the schools recruiting him, he has a good idea of what he is looking for.

"A coach that really wants to build a relationship with me and a school that has the head coach contacting me the most," he said. "That means the most to me because at the end of the day, the head coach is the one that is making the decisions."

Arizona is one of the schools that has been on Matthews the longest and he says that he is continuing to build a relationship with the Wildcats.

"Everything with Arizona is going well," Matthews said. "I talk to coach Book all the time and we are building a great relationship. He tells me that they are hoping to get me on campus one day."

Matthews is hearing pitches from numerous schools and the most consistent one is that he can play both the point and shooting guard at the next level.

"Schools are recruiting me for both and I tell them I want to play both," he said. "I know more at the point, but I am learning to play the two. I am basically learning how to score more at the one and pass more at the two better as well.

"Arizona is telling me that they want me to be a combo guard and that is what I see myself as in college."
