After the family meeting, the Sawyers felt like Ole Miss was the best fit.
"I did a lot of thinking, and I felt when I went on my trip, it was more than just a trip, it was a business trip because that is where I am going to spend my next four to five years. I just did a lot of thinking, and everything that I thought it was going to be like, it was two times better. Coaches Nutt and Vaughn did a great job recruiting me and making me feel at home. When I left Miami and arrived at the Oxford campus, it felt no different than Miami. It was like a home away from home."
There were also a couple more factors that came with the decision.
"I think I can come in there and make an impact at corner. I went to a couple of their practices, and I really liked their drills and how the coaches coach. I also felt comfortable around the Ole Miss coaches and players. I already knew some of their coaches, but I had not had a chance to see if I was going to fit in with their players. And lastly, I wanted to look at their academic programs. They were very impressive. Overall, Ole Miss was just what I was looking for."
