A: "Everyone at CSN is close, but when my friends went to other schools, they said it was just a bunch of individuals and they spent time with a certain group of people and that's who they rolled with. When I went to Oregon, it was nice to see that everyone talked to each other."
Q: What's the process like for you to finish Junior College and go to Eugene?
A: "I have to finish an online class before I can go there. I'll be there for sure for the spring quarter. I have three years to play two seasons."
Q: Do you expect to be able to make an impact right away? A: "That's what I hope. I plan on coming in and competing right off the bat. Hopefully I'm someone they can be able to use right away and hopefully start."
