News on Al Horford

Just a few weeks ago Al Horford announced his intentions to attend the University of Michigan and spend his collegiate career on the hardwood as a Wolverine. In the days subsequent, there have been rumblings from the Lansing area that this commitment isn't so firm. Tonight I got the 411 from Al himself.

Hey Al, is it true that you de-committed from Michigan?

"Umm, yeah."

What was your rationale for that decision?

"I just thought that I made the decision in a rush. I think that it was just too early and I want to re-think it."

What schools are on your list now?

"At the moment I'm not going to say any of the schools, but I will say that I'm still considering Michigan."

Are you looking to make your final decision before your season, shortly after, or during the spring signing period?

"I think it will be before. I just feel that I want to take some visits and see what other schools have to offer."

How many visits are you looking to take?

"I don't know. One or two at the most."

What was Coach Amaker's response to your decision?

"Well, he said it was fine. Of course he was a little upset, but I told him that I thought I made my decision in a rush and that I wasn't ready."
