"I think we are playing pretty well as a team," said Vital. "We have four sophomores which are our main guys. KJ (Santos) has been out from the beginning after a big game, but to be 6-0 in our league and the youngest team in our league speaks volumes. With a first year head coach it has just been a bunch of new guys coming together and wanting to win."
At 6-foot-2, Vital has always been seen as somebody who can get buckets, but now he says that he is hoping to become a more complete player.
"I think I have been playing well," explained Vital. "Coach has helped me with my confidence and I have gotten extra reps in the gym, and I think I have been playing well. I've been known as a shooter, but I am trying to be more of a facilitator who can also score. I just want to be an all-around player."
Recruiting wise things have been picking up with Vital as more schools get a chance to see him.
"I just received an offer from Boston College," noted Vital. "Then also I have VCU and a few other offers."
VCU has former Vermont Academy Coach Jesse Bopp on staff, and Vital says that gives him a sense of familiarity.
"I really like VCU a lot," noted Vital. "I originally came to Vermont Academy to play for Coach Bopp. I actually made a visit there this summer and I got to see Coach (Shaka) Smart and Coach Bopp. It was fun, the whole team was great. I had a real good time there."
Also the offer from Boston College was big, as it validated a lot of the work that Vital has been putting in.
"They are a high major, and they were my first high-major offer," explained Vital. "I have been working at that for a long time. I haven't really been known as one of those high-major players in the past, and to receive a high-major offer meant a lot."
For now Vital is just hoping to close out the season strong and continue to improve his point guard skills.
