Four-star combo guard Dwayne Cohill had a big summer playing with Ohio Basketball Club. Cohill led his team to the title at the adidas Summer Championships, and has continued to add college interest.
“Both individually and as a team I can look back at the summer and be happy,” said Cohill. “We got so much better as a team from the spring until Las Vegas. We went from an undersized team, to a team that was champions. Personally I feel I stepped up my game and showed I could make the transition to being a point guard.”
On the recruiting trail Cohill came into the summer with offers from schools such as Ohio State, Xavier, Illinois, West Virginia, and others.
Recently picked up offers from Tulsa and DePaul. Cohill plans to visit DePaul on Sunday after visiting Northwestern on Saturday.
About the offer from DePaul, Cohill said, “They weren’t recruiting me real hard, and then they saw me in July and really liked me. I know they didn’t have a lot of success this year, but I really think they are a program that can build in the Big East, which is a great conference, and become a school that people really take notice of.”
While the visits to Northwestern and DePaul are coming up, most recently Cohill went to Michigan for their elite camp.
About the experience, Cohill said, “It was a tremendous opportunity for me to learn. I thought I was an ambidextrous player, but the things I learned there showed me how I can improve and meeting Coach Beilein and his staff was a tremendous opportunity.”
Michigan didn’t offer Cohill following the camp, but they made it clear the situation he is in, and it is something that Cohill respects.
“Coach Beilein called me and told me they took Xavier Simpson in this class and they have a point guard in 2017,” explained Cohill. “He told me that they don’t want to offer me yet because they don’t know what they will need in 2018, and they might not need a point guard. He says they like me a lot as a player, but he doesn’t want to disrespect me by offering and then not really wanting me.”
Cohill continued, “I really respected Coach Beilein for that, and I like that he was honest with me about where things stand.”
For now Cohill is in no hurry to make a decision, and he plans to see numerous other schools before coming to a decision.
