What’s up, everybody?
I decided to narrow my college list to Miami, Illinois, Vanderbilt and Seton Hall.
I recently came back from my first visit at Miami and I want to say that it was a great visit. I really liked it. I want to thank Coach L [Larranaga] and his staff for showing my family and me a great time. I really learned a lot about Miami as a whole. From the players to the President it was just great.
Next stop is going to be Illinois this weekend, the 29th. I’m really looking forward to that visit to see what a college town looks like and learning a lot about the university. Then after Illinois I plan on going to Vandy for Midnight Madness so that should be really exciting. I’m looking forward to my visits. And lastly it’s Seton Hall and I don’t have an exact date lined up for them.
I’m getting closer and closer to making my decision in October.
