"With him being my only child, I am really looking at the coaching staff. I want a comfort level for myself even though the decision is ultimately up to him," she said. "I would definitely like to be able to see him play. I don't want to miss games. But it's more important that he goes where I know the coaching staff will take care of him."
She said they recently had a "comfortable" visit to Kentucky that helped convince her academics were a viable part of coach Rich Brooks' program. She recently earned her Master's degree and says a quality education for her son is important.
"I want him to get a good education and be around guys and coaches he will be comfortable with. I tell them they are getting my baby. It's always been Dyjuan and I. I will just pray on the rest of it," she said.
"I am extremely nervous just thinking about him going away to school. The coaches will be who he spends his next four years with. That's why I worry about that and figure the style of play and him playing will all fall in place. He's really competitive and will be fine with all that."
