What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Michigan? “I chose Michigan because they have a phenomenal academic program for student-athletes. When I visited Michigan one of my first impressions was the pride that the people there have in their school, and that was something that I wanted to be a part of. No matter where you look you can always see the block “M” with Maize and Blue in every window of every shop. And even though I was 8 hours away from my house, they made me feel like I was at home.
“My Dad always tells me “College is a 40 year decision, not a 4 year decision” and Michigan really stuck out in that way to me because I know they will help me tremendously, for life after college.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “This year I think our high school team should be very competitive in our conference. We have a good balance of upperclassmen and underclassmen with a solid defense and slick attack.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my Duke`s coaches (Coach Ebe and Coach Christmas) along with my Big 4 coaches (Coach McKinney and Coach Greg) for the guidance and the support that they have given me throughout the recruiting process. Also my school coach (Coach Dolphin) for helping me communicate with college coaches.
“Lastly I would like to thank my parents for guiding me in making the correct decisions for my future.”
