SG Matthew Humphrey: Q & A
Have you made a visit to Michigan? I know they will be a player in your recruitment.
No, I haven't, but they have offered me a scholarship to play for them; but yes, Illinois has too. I have been to Illinois before with my school team for a shootout. It was alright. I've also been down there for Midnight Madness.
How long ago did Illinois put the offer on the table for you? I know at one time you really talked highly of the Illini.
It's been about a month now. Coach Weber was the one to offer it to me. I mean, I like them but I haven't narrowed my list down yet. I would like to go over the schools I like with a list for my family, but I'm pretty sure Michigan and Illinois will always make the cut though.
Matt, a lot of athletes like to stay close to home so their families can see them play. Will that have any impact on your decision for picking a college?
No, not at all. My family will be able to come see me play regardless of where I go. I mean, Illinois is nice; my dad and mom went there so it's a nice school.
Is there anything you like about Illinois or anything that separates it from other schools?
It's a great school. They have done well over the years and Coach Weber has done a great job with them. I'm sure I'll make a few more visits.
Recently Humphrey told GoBlueWolverine.com (Sam Webb) that he plans to make a decision on what college he plans on attending right before his season starts.
