Why did you choose Delaware? “The coaching staff is great and they were behind me 100% throughout the process. I also had two great visits which gave me a chance to see how nice the campus and facilities are. But ultimately I choose Delaware because of it’s size, tradition, location and the general atmosphere. It was like a diamond in the rough for me.”
