Rocket Digest recently caught up with Juwan. He is hearing from several Division I schools, including Toledo. When asked about Toledo, Juwan said "yes, I have an offer if I'm interested right now."

In fact, Juwan was planning on visiting Toledo this past weekend, and was preparing for the visit at the time that Rocket Digest made contact with him.

Juwan said that he speaks to both head basketball coach Gene Cross and the assistant coaches at Toledo frequently, and he has a good impression of Coach Cross. "I think he is a good, young coach who lets his players play," said Juwan.

Though Juwan was just going to be making his first visit to Toledo as a basketball prospect, he did visit campus when he was younger so he is somewhat familiar with the layout of the campus.

Juwan will just be entering his sophomore season, but he is already hearing from many of the top programs in the country. Toledo is up there with those programs too. When asked about his list of favorites, Juwan replied "Michigan, Michigan State, USC, Georgetown, Stanford, Memphis, Toledo, and Marquette."

There's stiff competition for the Rockets, but the fact that Toledo has been recruiting him early on might help UT's chances.

St Mary Prep returns three starters from a team that went 20-6 last season. Juwan believes that he can make the team even better this year. "I control the tempo of the game and make others around me better, while impacting the game wherever I'm needed," Juwan said about what he brings to the team.

He is also an excellent student off the court, holding a 3.2 GPA.
