Reporter Mike Sullivan had a chance to interview Tyrone Nash about his recruiting process ...

The adjustment in moving up North to polish his individual game is going well, according to Tyrone Nash, a 6-foot-7 forward who is now competing for Northfield Mount Hermon in Massachusetts.

"We are working out with the other players and it looks like a very good team," Nash said. "We have all the parts of a team that will make it good."

Tyrone, who helped Lawrence-Woodmere Academy to the States last season, is also working hard on adding some more muscle to his frame. "We lift weights at least three times a week," he said. "I want to get stronger and the facilities are very good here. They give you plenty of time to work on your strength."

already has had some in school visitors. "St. John's was up here with coach Norm Roberts," he said. "I had a chance to speak to him and it went well."

Nash said he plans on setting up an official visit to St. John's soon. "I have already seen St. John's but coach Roberts would like me to have more of a chance to see the campus and talk to the coaches and players," Tyrone said.

Tyrone has already taken a trip to Notre Dame. "It went well," he said. "I hope I wasn't a jinx to the football team (Notre Dame got crushed by Michigan on Saturday). But I really liked meeting and talking to the players and the coaches. The campus is beautiful. You can see what a great atmosphere it is there. I am seriously considering them. It was a good chance to compare the visit to Kentucky."

Speaking of Kentucky, Nash said he is still interested and is still hearing from the SEC program. "I like them a lot too," Tyrone said. "When I went there I also had a good time."

Tyrone also said he had an assistant coach from Rutgers come up for an in school visit. "Northwestern also came," he said. "I am also interested in Florida. I hope to take four or five visits before I decide."

Nash said Stanford is also high on his list and he could end up taking an official visit there. "I haven't ruled out any school on my list," he said. "I just wanted some time to look at a few schools before I decide."

When might he decide? "Hopefully in the Fall," he said. "I would like to and plan on doing it then after I take some more visits."
