I chose Arizona because ... the coaches have the personalities that I know will push me to every goal I hope to achieve while attending Arizona. I also chose this school because it is closer to home which I know will make me as successful as I can be in college. The coaches are so determined to bring the best out of their players, both on and off the court, which is the exact type of coaching staff I was looking for when deciding on a college. I know this will be the right decision for me and I cannot wait for the next four years of my life.
