What’s up world!
It’s your boy big Mitch again checking in with my latest blog entry.
I really appreciate all you guys’ support reading my blog and hitting me up on Twitter throughout this whole process. To be honest, it’s been really stressful and, at times, it’s been hard on my family.
That’s why, a few weeks ago, I just shut everything down when I went home and didn’t do anything but hang out with my girlfriend and friends and family and just laid low. It was really good to just get that time to myself. It was much needed.
Now I’m back at Brewster and I’m feeling really good about school and the up-and-coming season. We start practice officially next Tuesday and our first game is on November 7. So I’m really excited about that.
I know my boy T.J. Warren is deciding on his college next week so that will be good for him. I know people thought that he and I could go to North Carolina together, but they just got a commitment from Brice Johnson on Wednesday so I don’t know if they have any scholarships left for me or T.J.
I haven’t talked to UNC lately so I don’t know. They’re still on my list though.
I would assume, and I really don’t know for sure, that T.J. would like to go to one of those schools that are close to his home in N.C. That’s just my guess. He would play well in anyone’s offense because he’s a scorer for sure so he can’t go wrong.
Kelly Kline/ESPNHSMitch McGary continues to weigh his options.
As for my recruitment, I’ve got some big news for you guys. T.J.’s not the only one committing next week.
I’m planning to make my commitment next week sometime too.
I can honestly say that right now I don’t know where I’m going so anything you read that says I do isn’t true. I already talked to my man Jason Jordan from ESPNHS and let him know that I want to do another blog before I make my announcement just to get all of my thoughts out and clear my mind so I can make the best decision possible.
At this point, I’m focusing on Florida, Duke and Michigan.
I love Maryland, but I just don’t think that it’s the best fit for me and I’m still looking at North Carolina, but, like I said, I don’t really know what’s going on with their scholarship situation after their latest commitments.
Obviously, I’ve got some great options, but this next week I’ll really be doing a lot of thinking about what the perfect situation for me will be.
Well, I know I’ve given you all a lot in this blog so I’m going to end it here.
Don’t forget you’ll hear from me again next week in my blog before I make my commitment so check back for that.
Take care everyone.
