“They were one of the first coaches to kind of look at me and reach out and they stayed consistent throughout my whole process. They let me take my time with my decision and it was a perfect fit…The campus felt like home right away and the people there made it really feel like home so and the academics are really good there too, so it was all kind of a full package…The relief was amazing when I first made my decision. Now I’m able to just focus on the main season and not have to worry about something hanging over my head.”
