Who's to say who is just the right person to go to when you have a question that you simply can't answer yourself.
Relations is always good and for Ndamukong Suh, there's nobody he's closer to than his mother. But, in matters like this when it comes to deciding just where he will go to attend college and play football, sometimes not even mom can give him all the answers he needs.
Enter, Marlon Lucky.
Being a commit of
With an almost equal trip in
distance looming if he were to make that decision, Suh decided that Lucky was
the perfect candidate to ask just what his thought process was in inevitably
choosing the Huskers. "I asked him because I have gotten to know him some and I
really wanted to hear why he chose
"The fact that he's close helps, because he understands the distance, but I just wanted to hear from another person why they decided on them."
This late in the recruiting process, most recruits aren't recruits at all, already having committed and stand dreaming of touchdowns, interceptions, tackles or whatever for their new school of choice. Suh, though, he's been fighting this recruiting thing for weeks now, already beyond his deadline that he set just a couple of months ago.
The wait is going to be worth it for him, because Suh says that there's no way that he doesn't make the right choice, because he's going to make sure he knows it before he ever says a word. "This is a decision that affects the rest of my life," Ndamukong said. "I know that if I am to make sure that wherever I go is the right place, I can't just think about it and make a choice. I have to look at everything and ask everyone whatever I feel I need to know."
"There's just too many important things about this decision to rush it for anyone."
Part of that process is figuring
out institutions for what really matters to him: engineering. His research that
might have hopefully yielded a sure-fire leader has only led him to look at his
schools as just as even as before. "They've both got great engineering
programs," Suh said of
Ok, so that's out, but there's the ultimate factor that regardless of the classes available Suh will look at as THE most important factor now and for possibly the next five years. "The relationships matter the most to me," Suh said. "How I get along with the coaches, the players, just everyone."
"All my schools that I have considered are places that I know I will be comfortable at and have people that I can look at as people I can trust and believe in."
Suh will make his decision following the All-American Bowl-weekend and this time, he's confident he will indeed have a concrete place he will go. So, for him, you might consider this visit pleasure as a reward for a season well-played, business as everyone wants to do the best they can on the field and both as Suh is typical to his studious nature in making sure he's asked all the right questions so that his answer is the right one for him.
That's the decision and as you might expect, Suh can't wait to get it out of the way. "I didn't want it to take this long," he said. "Everyone would like to know that the first place they see is the perfect place for them. I didn't get that, so I have had to do a lot of research, talk to my family and talk to as many people as I can."
"It will be soon, but I know it is also going to be right."
