Q: Have you been looking to expand your game? What have you been working the most on?

A: Yeah I have been trying to become a better wing player and a better wing defender. I’ve been working on ball handling and being comfortable with the ball in my hands.

Q: How has the recruiting process been? What schools have been talking to you the most lately?

A: Right now, it’s been the same ever since school season started. I haven't paid attention to the recruiting process. I’ve been talking to Indiana, Michigan State, Iowa, Purdue, Georgetown, and Kentucky a lot.

Q: What do you like about the Indiana Hoosiers?

A: The thing that really intrigues me the most about Indiana is having that jersey that says Indiana across the chest. I am Indiana homegrown and lived here my whole life. Being able to wear a jersey that has Indiana on it is just something that is very exciting.

Q: Describe your experience at the Michigan State-Indiana game yesterday.

A: The atmosphere was crazy with us being courtside and seeing how hard guys play at this level. It was great for me to see firsthand.

Q: Purdue is recruiting you very hard. What do you like about their program?

A: Purdue was the first to offer so that means a lot to me and my family. They try to build a family environment and I know how much they'd love to have me a part of their program. They are really showing how much they care about me as a person and not just as a basketball player.

Q: Kentucky extended an offer to you in September. What do you like about the Wildcats?

A: Coach John Calipari told me Kentucky is not in there for everybody. He feels like I have an edge to myself and can be impactful. He can help me get to where I want to go and expand my game to get ready for the next level.

Q: What are some of the factors that will make up your decision?

A: I want to go to somewhere I can see myself at for possibly four years if I have to. I want to go to a place I can feel like I'm loved and appreciated. I also want to feel like family with the people I’m around and not just group of basketball players.
