I just finished listening in on Matt’s phone interview with Josh Harrellson, and the young man had some interesting things to say:
Matt: Who are you down to? When will your decision be made?
Josh: “I’m down to Saint Louis and Kentucky. I’m going to decide sometime tomorrow, probably around 2 or 3.” (That could be central time, so maybe around 3 or 4)
Matt: What do you like about UK?
Josh: “I like the tradition, I like Coach Gillispie a lot, I like Coach Cox, and I like all the players. When you think Kentucky, you think ‘basketball'”
Matt: What do you like about St. Louis?
Josh: “I like the coaches, I like that it’s close to home, I like the players, and it’s a good academic school. One of my friend’s actually plays for them as well.”
Matt: Is being close to home going to the determining factor in your decision?
Josh: “It was at first, but when I thought about it, I realized that I was going to have to leave home sometime.”
Matt: How did you like your visit to UK?
Josh: “It was probably one of the best experience’s of my life. It was my first time going to a horse race, and everywhere I went people were yelling at me, trying to get me to go to UK. I’m really not used to that kind of stuff.”
Matt: Have you made your decision? Do you know what you’re going to do?
Josh: “Pretty much. I’m just going to tell coach tomorrow.”
Matt will be speaking with Josh tomorrow afternoon. By then, his fate will be sealed.
