And what I liked the most was 24-hour access to the gym! And the development of players, Kawhi Leonard, for example.”
Boise State: “Really love how Coach (Leon) Rice and (Chris) Acker made me feel on my official visit. They made sure Chandler Hutchinson and I communicated and I love how they developed him into a pro.”
