Mississippi State: “They have a great coaching stuff and i love how they run their offense.”
Creighton: “Their play style is very similar to the NBA and they shoot the ball a lot and let you play your game.”
Ole Miss: “Great coaching staff and another very up and down the court [team], pushing the ball up the court.”
Georgetown: “They have a lot of knowledge at that school and I believe that could be great for me.”
