*Ty Abbott, 6-2 SR SG Phoenix (Ariz.) Desert Vista has been a very busy young man the past couple weeks. Abbott was just released from his letter of intent from New Mexico. Here are a few quotes from Abbott's phone conversation last night with us.
* I'm not going to rush into anything this time, last time I did that look where it got me. I'm very thankful I was granted a release, this time I'm going to make sure of the situation.
* Right now there's no leader, I want to make sure this time everything is going to be right and I want it to be a great fit for me, it's a career decision I have to make.
*I only have two visits left, Illinois is trying to set things up for me, but I'm not sure what two schools I will visit last. I really don't have any favorites I just want to make sure and hope people understand that. The list of schools that I will be choosing from will be Illinois, Washington State, UConn, Vanderbilt and Virginia Tech in no particular order.
*All the coaches from the Illinois staff are recruiting me, Coach Weber was out here too, I know how important this process is for them, they're great coaches I think.
*I like Illinois because of what Coach Weber has done with guards, he's proved to a lot of people he can coach and he's good with his players. I like their style and going to the Big Ten will not be an issue for me.
* No way will I decide real soon, I have the signing period and then a little extra, I will probably use all of it just to make sure this time.
*Being comfortable with players also plays a big part, usually on visits you can tell how close the players are and how close they are with the coaches.
*Ty Abbott is a member of the class of 2007 and it was reported here at Scout.com by (Greg Hicks) last week that Abbott's GPA is around the (2.9-3.0) area.
