Loyola Marymount received terrific news this week when they got a commitment from John Haywood, 6-5 SG La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat. Haywood is a strong, athletic scorer with a significant upside.
We spoke with John last night and he said that UC Irvine, Nevada, Wyoming and Boise St. were the others schools he was considering.
We asked about the factors that influenced his decision and John said, "The school atmosphere. It's a smaller school, smaller classes, so you have a chance to interact with the teachers. Also, I think they're a program on the way up with Steve Aggers and I want to be a part of that."
