What will you major in/study?

Why did you choose school? “First and foremost, Penn’s academic reputation speaks for itself. I was really comfortable with the campus on my visit as well. I like the feel of a city school and the whole environment. I really like the coaching staff; coach (Mike) Murphy is a young, energetic coach who is on his way to being one of the best coaches in the game. I got a great vibe from the practices I went to. It’s a really good fit for me.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “We have some real high expectations for this year. We have a strong senior class with good leadership and we expect to challenge for an Inter-Ac championship. We have a competitive schedule and we want to take another step in establishing ourselves as an Eastern powerhouse.”

Other comments: “I want to thank my parents and my entire family; (EA) coach Andy Hayes and (assistant) Will Gibbs; my Mesa coaches, Jon Sims and Kevin Rudd; and Rebel Elite coach Harry Sankey.”

Note: All Ivy League students athletes must continue through the admissions process before completing their commitment
