What’s up SLAMonline?

Finally getting a chance to check back in with you guys. Yesterday was a great day.  First off, I want to say that it’s been a huge honor to play with a team of some of the best players in the country. It was even more exciting to be recognized at the Jordan Brand Classic, the whole experience was great, especially playing in the Bobcats arena. Unfortunately, we didn’t win the game but we still all played hard.

The entire weekend was a good learning experience for me. I’m glad I got to be around a great coaching staff and players. It was a great ending for my high school career.

Now I’m headed back home to finish up school and then get focused on the summer. I’m anxious about getting to Georgetown to work out this summer and get focused with my new teammates. The college game is a transition where almost everyone was a star in high school so I have to put that much more work in to get ready.

Thank you guys for keeping up with my diary and following me on Twitter (@OttoPorter22). Go Hoyas!
