How wonderful is it to be selected to play in the 2015 NBPA Top 100 Camp?
It has been great--a blessing really.

It shows that my hard work has paid off and I am not stopping. It is just a great experience really. To be able to play with a lot of the best people in the country and to have the relationship that I have with all of these people, it is a great experience.

What are your AAU plans after this tournament?
We made it to the Under Armour Final so I am looking forward to leading my team to the finals and then hopefully celebrate.

What are things you have improved on over the past year?
Just my motor really, being a more efficient scorer at times and really being a good teammate. Playing on both ends, I think, is a big part. I am humble and willing to work, like someone who has no offers, and that is a good thing about me. I make it seems like it is zero and I just keep working hard everyday.

How many offers have you got and which schools have the come from?
I have over 30 offers so [naming them] is hard to say.

Has NC State offered you?
Yes. Almost all of their coaches have reached out to me. They are saying that a lot of Dematha [High School] people have been there so they are using that and telling me to keep doing what I am doing.

Have you narrowed your list to five schools?
Not really. I am still open to a lot of schools and doing research. I am doing a little research day-by-day and I want to take all of my official visits if I can. I have a lot of schools I really like and I am trying to take officials and non-officials to see what is right for me.

Do you plan to visit NC State?
Hopefully I will get a chance to visit there. I don’t know when it is going to be, but I want to visit NC State.

What is your timetable for making a decision?
Hopefully in August and September, but if I don’t commit before then I am willing to take it into the school year. I am just trying to find the right place for me. I am not rushing it but if I could make a decision before school starts I would like to.

If it keeps going into this school year, I am fine with that.
