So it wasn't really a problem getting into June, and I've been working out at home.
So anyways, that's just get let's get right into this interview.
So the first question is probably a very obvious one.
So what led you to pick Butler.
It was a coaching staff.
The cultures that they treated you treated me like family was all woke me and the visit just, like, just put the icing on the cake.
Everything about Butler was just It was just right for me.
And I just wanted to make a decision.
You said that the visit put the icing on the cake.
What? What? What exactly what did you exactly dio during the visit? Uh, so when I first got that airplane, it was like a exhibition game.
They're playing like, human dear something, and they blew them up.
So after that, we, like, went to the back.
We able, like our parents, the coaches, the team.
And it was just like the vibe.
Everybody was cool.
Everything was just, like said.
And then after that, I just hung out with the team.
And, like, I like the players like it's just a cool about Yeah, I'm just warning.
I've never gone on and ah, visit, Obviously.
So I'm just curious.
What? What? What was the food? Was the food good? Yeah.
I mean, I have everything.
I think I like chicken wings.
They have got they have.
They have a lot of stuff.
You get the pay, they should.
You should you get Yeah.
And do you think Do they give you guys like any gear anything or I guess I don't They kind of They would give you a jersey wherever try on, but do they kind of give you guys any, I guess clothing items or souvenirs from the visit? Uh, no, not yet That they get in trouble, so you never know.
You OK? And you said you kind of got to talk to the players.
What was What was that like for you? Kind of meeting the guys that might be your future teammates.
I actually really cool to see what I will be doing in a couple of years.
Like what they're going through right now is what I'll be going through so that I could talk to him, get inside the stuff about everything.
Yeah, I'm wondering, were you able to go on any other visit, sir? Just a butler.
No, actually, since I committed so early in our new miss any other I mean, like, unofficial, but nothing official.
My, uh, on the official visit with older, of course.
And you just said that you committed so early.
I mean, like, I always looking to the committee.
I think he even committed in 2019.
So I was I mean, my my mind is blown right off the bat.
So what? What kind of we made that decision just so easy for you? Like I said, uh, I always I'm gonna go somewhere Rama, Have an impact.
I don't want to go anywhere.
I'm going to say or not play or like, I'm just not a priority.
I feel like butler prioritize me.
So what are being said? I just thought it was like, Why not? Of course.
And Bowler is very close to, ah, to your home or it's at least in your area.
So what's that collar for you knowing that you'll probably be able to play in front of your friends and family? It's cool.
That's really cool.
And that's what I like.
That's enough other reason.
A lot of state I'm gonna play it from my family.
I'm offering going to be able to come back to me and supporting me so the support system will be like you'll be the same So that's another good day.
Yeah, it's definitely going to be a really cool experience. Free.
So what? What do you like about Butler? In terms of the style of their basketball, I kind of just get up and down and play.
I like how to use the ball screen.
I feel like I really, really well with the floater often like I know I'm have to defend.
But offense like, I think I'd be like, I think I feeling, What do you want on those visits? Were you ever able playing? You got swell Butler.
What's just kind of tours and all that stuff? No, no.
I didn't play any Best Buy that weekend, but like a couple weeks before that, Like a few weeks before that, I went to a brother and I played like open gym with the guys like the players, like we ran pick up games and I was cool.
That's the first time I ever played like with them, so that was good.
Yet what? They're kind of like playing with guys that are in college.
You might be a little bit bigger, a little stronger.
What was that alarmist here? like for you.
It is different.
Like you can tell the level of the separation.
Like Like it's different, like this.
Strange the physicality to speed the course way long.
So you like You can definitely tell it like it was cool is a good experience to, like, see riding on a hiking trip.
Even so, it was good.
Was it like I d been difficult for you? Where you kind of chilling when you were playing with him? I mean, I was telling like I was being I was being my shocks up here and there like it wasn't difficult, like, cause that any day is just basket.
So it wasn't, like, anything like hard.
But it was like you could tell the difference between high school and college.
And going back to you being Butler's first committed the class.
So how important is loyalty to you? Very, very so.
Another thing is, the coaches were they were very consistent, like the coach always hit me up.
I was texting me. See how I am.
What? I'm just what I'm up to.
They came to the games a lot.
So, like, that's what I'm big on little too.
So that's another thing.
So I don't see myself decommitted from Butler.
Yeah, of course.
Did you receive that offer from Butler? Cause I know that was one of your one of your first higher and offers.
So what was that exact moment? Like? I don't know.
When I was I want to say, Like, when did I get that offer? Hello? I can't I can't find out you're clean.
I want to say, because I remember I was in school like it was, like, right after school, actually.
Oh, no, I got it right here.
I got that offer.
No, I just posted it that day.
It was all there.
Oh, no, If it's not good, You thought that big? Yeah, I got it.
I got it. May make sense.
Makes every last year.
So that was And what was the second person, like, just for that moment like you? Because that was, like, one of your first, I guess. High major offer.
So Well, what was that whole vibe? Um, it was It was really cool.
Like they call my parents and everything.
Like, I felt like you feel especially like you feel really good.
So that was cool.
And then I kind of like I have been talking to him for a minute.
So Mark Yukos kind of game be like heads up like, hey there, thinking about offering you.
So I kind of already knew.
So it wasn't just like socking Miller.
It was still a great unbelievable.
Just like your car has paid off, of course.
And, um, I want to talk about a little bit more.
I guess you're playing style.
What's its strengths and weaknesses? And how do you think that will fit in with Butler? Um, my, I feel like my strength Or get around defending and I'm a playmaker.
I could go get a bucket, so I feel like that I would I would help him a lot because I feel like this year that's kind of what they elect.
Then I have my guys who could, like, go get a bucket like who could create for their own.
I feel like it was kind of more, but just like other players have to create for others like a player how to create for other players.
So I like, I hope that weakness is I want to be a more consistent shooter.
Soft, like I need to learn how to, like, make money can make open shots and stuff like that.
More consistent toe, Of course.
Then how do you think it would be ableto handle some of the adversities you might face in her freshman year? Um, I just stay positive.
Really? Like you have to understand you are a freshman.
This is your first year.
So you can't really get too down on yourself, for just you got to just push through it.
But I feel like I'll be fine.
Like, I understand that I'm not about to come in and, like, just be part big.
Like I understand.
I'm gonna make mistake.
There's gonna be difficulty, so that's not necessarily I'm good.
I'm just saying to stay positive.
And I understand that this is not like I'm not an expert like this my first year.
Yeah, and obviously Bowler is in the Big East.
So what are you looking forward to? Most are playing in that conference and that kind of ever come into consideration knowing that you will be flying in the Big East.
Yeah, that's it.
That's a big conference So really, it was like, uh, you gotta be right, because the Big East is the guards lead.
So that's another reason.
Like, I really think I could pick compete with all the other guards in there, and I am a guard saw off, like, just best for me.
And I'm looking for the plane.
A Madison Square garden? Yeah.
Have you ever been ableto go there before? It's a Madison Square garden.
Yeah. No, no, no.
I had the opportunity.
I don't travel too often, but I happen to have the opportunity go there.
I'm telling you, man.
Oh, my, It's unbelievable.
Oh, my, You are.
I like just just being there was cool, but I came in and I've been playing there like, that's just unbelievable experience, Probably What did What did you go for? I just want because I went to New York with my family and I went Oh, yeah, I order nothing special, but it was a really cool experience for share.
Yeah, I'm excited for that.
Now, I know you do have a relationship with one of my, uh, my former guest.
So what kind of relationship with him, like That's my guy.
I talked to him a lot.
Like we work out together.
So, like, were we? Give me a bid in our relationship, just trying to get more close to each other.
And But he's really cool.
Like I like this.
I feel like we're playing really well together.
How do you think your games will be able to call upon each other? Exactly.
Um, I feel like I'll be to create for Pierce a lot.
So, like Pierce is really athletic, really athletic.
So if I draw a couple defenders appears close, that's a lot.
Where I draw defender Pierce is in the corner.
So I thought I will play really running with each other.
Yeah, of course I did.
You see that? The video of him dunking or whatever? Yeah.
Yeah, I thought that way we're gonna say something.
No, no, You go, you go.
So I saw a video and like you talking, talking him out of this guy's found Melo that I want that video of him like, don't going on my own like Like he's like he's like, you see, I got a guy, but not caught me by surprise a little bit.
He's He's Yeah, his doubts.
Eyes is unbelievable, I guess here in this issue, because yeah, and, uh, at the moment Bowler is Brent is the number three recruit recruiting class in the Big East for 2021.
So what do you guys looking on to accomplish in your freshman year? And what are some of your expectations? Oh, really? I feel like the main Goto win.
It's like going we want to win a national championship.
But I feel like they're trying to start like with our class.
I'd like to trying to start something, so I just want, like, I just want to continue what they have going on.
They had a really good year this year.
I was gonna continued after like like the gold is the win.
So I feel like that's what we're trying to build for players that want to compete.
Players don't win.
Definitely all there, any of you Are there any other guys that you guys are trying Teoh to recruit to come the butler right now or not really All now, since deejay.
When did they committed? Ah, I'm not sure, because like, that's like, That's three indie guys.
I'm not sure what they're doing.
I knew they were occurring and they offer him he committed, So I'm not sure what they're up to right now, but I'm pretty sure up to something looking for people looking for players, of course.
And now we're talking about a high school season a little bit.
I know you cheap.
2000 points in your junior year.
So what was that kind of like for you getting that accomplishment? I don't know.
Surreal like it's scary because when I was a freshman like, that was a goal I had set in my mind, and I didn't think it'd be this earlier.
So it was great, Like I didn't even know I got it like that game.
I wasn't sure, but they told me after, so it was cool, but we kind of we lost.
Um, So how it kind of losing with the gay, That accomplishment.
What was like, how are you kind of feeling monthly? Were you a little bit like happy? Sad by how it was that whole life.
It was kind of like mixed emotions.
You I was happy, but Then again, we did lose and it was a close man.
We lost my like a better.
Oh, and it went into overtime with.
So yeah, it was It was tough.
Was it was a regular season game or playoff.
So what was the regular? So it was the last game of the regular shipping.
Oh, what was your senior and I or the other school senior night? Uh oh.
So we do our senior night differently, like our senior, and I was like it was before that.
But that was in our city.
That's called Yeah.
So what do you want if there is? Because now people are saying, like, who knows what what's going to happen during the the high school sports season? But if there is a high school basketball season, what you looking accomplish in your final year? I wanna win.
So really, I just want to make everybody better so I can have a better chance to win.
So I'm not really looking nice individual, like I have individual goals like that.
I have for myself.
But like team wise, I just wanna win, compete like I feel like we haven't been where we can be.
Like I said, we've been sorting ourselves, so I just want to win this year.
Most definitely on my, uh My final question I have is what do you do? Step away from the game of basketball? What do you want? To be remembered as, uh, hello.
I want to be remembered as a good person. I don't remember.
That is somebody who gave it their all at all times.
Somebody had a good attitude.
Someone who is not just about their self in about others as well.
