"The reason I picked Michigan State was because of what Coach Izzo has done," Costello said. "I don't enjoy losing and they're a winning program. Their character, the presence they give off to people of being laid back as a university fits me well.
"He showed me that I can live with him for four years. He's an honest man. I may hate him at some point but he'll ride me hard and be honest."
Costello was on the road playing with Dorian's Pride in the summer and realized he wasn't the kind of guy who would be comfortable too far from home. "I noticed throughout the July season that I definitely don't like being far from home. Being close to home was big."
