Interview With Thomas Dziagwa

We spoke with high priority FGCU target Thomas Dziagwa, a 2016 point guard from Tampa Catholic High School.

Liam Jones: You just took an official visit to FGCU. What did you think of the campus, facilities, and things like that?

Thomas Dziagwa: "The school is new. Everything is up to date. It's a nice campus. There's nothing really you can complain about the campus."

LJ: What has the coaching staff said they like about your game and how you fit into the program?

TD: "The coaches said I'm an all around player. I shoot exceptionally well but I bring a lot to the table. They can dump me in at guard or wing...I just bring a lot to the table and shoot it really well."

LJ: How did FGCU's run to the Sweet Sixteen change your perspective of the program? They kind of exploded onto the recruiting scene following that.

TD: "They have good basketball down there. They've won twenty-plus games the past three or four seasons. They obviously can play down there. They obviously made that Sweet Sixteen run as well."

LJ: You've now taken official visits to USF and FGCU. Where else are you planning on visiting?

TD: "Oklahoma State this following weekend. I have some other visits down the road but I take one visit at a time."

LJ: Do you have a timeline to make a decision or are you just going to figure it out once you've taken all your visits?

TD: "I want to commit and sign before the early period and everything. So sometime before then."

LJ: You're obviously known as a great shooter, what are some things you are trying to improve upon before your senior season and prior to college?

TD: "My body. I have to improve on my body, my strength, athletic ability, just my overall body."

LJ: From what it looks like, FGCU is one of the schools that has recruited you since the beginning. What does that mean to you?

TD: "They were the first to see me. They've stayed with me in thick and thin. They've seen good games and bad games that I've had. It means a lot when coaches see you early and stick with you."

LJ: For someone who hasn't seen you play - you're obviously known as a shooter - what other things do you feel you can really affect when you're on the court?

TD: "Probably just leading the team and making good decisions. I'm a good passer so just trying to get a basket for the team. Just trying to win."
