How did your visit go yesterday?
“I liked it a lot. I enjoyed watching the football game and watching the basketball team scrimmage. That was my first time ever going to a Michigan football game. I had a really good time. I also liked talking to Coach Amaker and Coach Ramsey. “
Were there any questions you had prior to you visit that you got answered for you while you were there?
“I really didn’t know how Coach Amaker was, but talking to him answered a lot of my questions. That was my first time really meeting coach Amaker and he’s a real good person AND a real good coach.”
What position do you run at Cass right now and what position do you want to run in college?
“I play the off guard right now, but I want to run the point in college.”
Do you recall telling me earlier this summer that you grew up liking Michigan?
There apparently had been talk elsewhere that that wasn’t necessarily the case and that you actually didn’t like Michigan.
“Nah, it wasn’t that I didn’t like Michigan. Like I said, I grew up liking them. It’s just that I felt that they weren’t really paying me any attention at first. But now I see that they're interested. I like Michigan. I grew up watching Chris Webber and the Fab 5. I just felt like they weren’t showing me any love at all.”
At this early point in your recruitment, what schools are on your list?
What schools have you visited thus far?
“Only Michigan. As a matter of fact, I’ll probably go back for the Ohio State game.”
What style of play do you like?
Some guys make their decisions during their junior year. Have you thought about whether or not that’s something you would want to do?
“I’ll probably decide during my senior year right before the season starts.”
When you finally sit down to make that choice what will be the significant factors in that decision?
“Distance won’t really matter to me. I’m looking at playing time, education, the campus, and just how everything goes. My mom is really set on the education, and so am I. But I am also focusing on playing time and figuring out if I can come in and play right away or have to wait 2 or 3 years.”
Do you know what you want to major in yet?
“Yeah. Business services and technology.”
Be sure to check back for part 2 tomorrow.
