  • I know college coaches can't talk with you right now due to you being so young, a sophomore in high school, but they can still come by your school and observe you. What schools came by during the recent recruiting period?
    "Mississippi State, Texas A&M and Ole Miss. I saw them come in and I saw them sitting next to my coach talking to him."

    What did they tell him about you while they were at your school?
    "He told me that they said that I am very athletic and how I came off downscreens. And one coach told him that I jump this high off the floor (he was holding his hand up about 3 feet in the air). He told him when he saw that he knew that I was very athletic and have a bright future."

    Who has offered you so far?
    "I have one from Syracuse, Ole Miss and Texas A&M. I haven't received one from Mississippi State yet."

    Are you going to try and take any unofficial visits to any colleges during your basketball season?
    "On the 4th I am going to Mississippi State when they play Texas A&M (in football). I also went to Mississippi State when they played Southern Miss. After that game (Coach George Brooks) said he was going to get me back up there because I didn't to spend as much time there as I wanted because it started raining. We left at halftime. He called my coach three days later. I am also going to Kentucky."
