Why Arizona: I came to the University of Arizona because I wanted stability. I have been through about 14 different coaches in the past few years and I knew if I came here, I would be able to reach my best. The whole team aspect really stuck out when I decided to come here. I believe that you have to be extremely close to win a title and that's what the team here has.
