I have played the game of basketball since I was ten years old. I have dreamed of playing at the collegiate level since I first started playing. I know if I continue to dedicate time and effort, my dream has the potential to become a reality. I am a hard worker and take pride in my game and my character both on and off the court. I am different from other recruits because every morning I wake up knowing another player is training, and I need to train harder than him. This drives me to be improve my game every day. My academic performance is very important to me as I realize without excelling academically, my basketball dreams will not come true. I apply as much dedication to my studies as I do to basketball. Finally, I look forward to the opportunity to play at the next level and continue to improve as a student athlete.
