As told to Sean Brown

What’s up SLAMonline?

Really excited to be playing in the Jordan Brand Classic game, it’s a great honor. Just getting to Charlotte so I’m not really sure what’s going on yet. I’m looking forward to seeing the schedule. I know some of the guys on the squad already so it should be a fun week playing with them and getting ready for the game.

I recently verbally committed to Georgetown and Coach John Thompson III. I really liked the coaching staff and the system. I think it will be a great opportunity for me to play at a school with such great tradition and help lead the next generation of Georgetown basketball.

Anxious to get on the court and this week and start working out with these other great players at the Jordan Brand Classic.

But like I said I’m still figuring out this week’s schedule and just got here, so I’m out. Tomorrow should be a busy day, and I’ll have a lot to talk about so check back!
