Since I last wrote I have been busy in the gym and with AAU and my recruitment.
My AAU team, the NJ Roadrunners, has been doing well lately. We won the Reebok Philly Showdown and have been playing well as a unit. I believe we will maintain our level of play through the summer.
A couple of weeks ago, I played in the NBA Top 100 Camp and there was a lot of competition and I had fun.
This month I have taken two unofficial visits, one to Rutgers and the other to Seton Hall. I’m planning some visits to other schools as well. My next visit will probably be to Villanova. Syracuse, South Carolina, Cincinnati, Kansas, Alabama and Louisville are some of the other schools recruiting me.
On my visits to Seton Hall and Rutgers, I had a lot of fun, I got a chance to see the campuses, got to know the coaches a lot better and learn things that I didn’t know about the schools and their programs. On my visit to Seton Hall I got a chance to see the team work out and meet some of the players. At Rutgers, I also met a lot of the players and talked to them about the school and the team.
In the month of July I will be busy with camps, tournaments and recruitment. I’m looking forward to getting started. I plan on having my list of schools down to my Top 10 by August.
