How did the commitment process go for you?
It was a great experience. All the schools I was interested in were very helpful and made things comfortable for me and my family so I could just enjoy the experience.
What were the reasons behind making your verbal commitment?
UNC is an amazing place. They have a top business program, which is my area of interest. Coach Breschi is a class act and the type of guy that any kid would want to play for. The guys on the team are great guys and great lacrosse players. The town of Chapel Hill is the perfect college town. Everyone who is involved with the University is crazy about it and will do anything to help a fellow Tar Heel. I just couldn’t see myself saying no to Carolina.
How did your university visit go?
I have had the opportunity to visit UNC twice now and both times were great. On my first visit I sat down with Coach Breschi and really got to know him and what he was all about as a person and as a coach. My next visit was during the UNC team camp where I had an awesome time. I met a bunch of the players on the team and I met the whole coaching staff. Everyone I met was so nice to me and made my visit special.
What are your best lacrosse attributes?
I would say dodging and my ability to get to the net.
What would you like to work on over the next two seasons?
I really need to fine tune my game over the next 2 seasons to get ready to play at the next level. I need to improve on my shooting and work on my field sense. I want to work on passing off a dodge and being able to shoot on the run with a guy at my hip. I am also going to work on my defense.
