"I think it was more that he liked the coaches and felt comfortable with them," John Hoskins, Sr., told Scout.com. "He wanted to be close to home. He'll be 15-20 minutes from campus. I think he wanted to be a part of the changes that they're trying to make at U of D."

"Everybody's liking what he's trying to do with the changes that he's going to make."
