The University of New Mexico hosted their version of "Midnight Madness" this Friday evening. While it wasn't at midnight there was plenty of howling as over 7,000 people showed up for their first look at the 2008-09 Lobo hoops teams in what is called the Lobo Howl!
Among those in attendance was a pair of 2010 recruits. TheRedMenace.com took some time and talked to these two young men starting with Michael Cobbins is a 6'8 200lb.PF out of Palo Duro HS, Amarillo, TX
is what Evan Daniels of
Scouthoops.com has to say about Mr. Cobbins.
Michael Cobbins, PF, New Mexico Force – At 6-foot-8, 190-pounds, Cobbins runs the floor with ease and uses his length to effect shots around the basket and snag rebounds. At this point, Cobbins is lacking strength, but he still showed he could score in the paint.
How are you enjoying your trip so far?
It is going well it is pretty
cool and nice so far.
Have you been on any other visit so far?
I have not been to any other schools on trips this is my first one, but I am looking at a few other schools.
Would you care to name any of the others at this time?
What made you want to come check out New Mexico and The Lobo Howl tonight?
The style the coaches portray, I like how
they support all
their players, and are there for you and stuff like that. I'v been
talking with Coach Walker and he is a great guy.
What can the school you decided to go to expect to see from you on the court?
A beast! I have to be
a monster on the boards, and when I
get the ball I have to go up strong and finish.
What are your expectations for your High school team this year?
I plan on getting to state this year, I
have to be a
leader, and we graduated our starting five and a lot of points so I
step in up big time.
Do you have any top school you are looking at right know a top three
Right now I am just pretty much open.
TheRedMenace.com would like to thank Michael Cobbins for his time as he and his family were headed back to Amarillo after The Howl. Stay tuned to TheRedMenace.com and Scout.com network as we follow Mr. Cobbins' recruitment.
