Chose the University of South Carolina because: ” One of my first unofficial visits was to South Carolina, and the coaching staff and the players set such a high standard that I couldn’t stop thinking about Columbia on all my other visits. I could tell right away that they hold each other accountable every day, believe in team-first soccer, and treat each other like family. I watched a lot of soccer games from a lot of different conferences when I was deciding, too, and paid attention to how the coaches coached, how the team played and adjusted and treated each other, and I loved everything I saw and learned about the program. I wanted to play for a program that had the highest goals but focused on one game at a time and doing little things the right way, and it didn’t take very long talking to the coaches and players for me to know this was it. Plus, throw in playing at home in the best college atmosphere. I was 100 percent sold and committed before Nationals of my freshman year. I never once thought about any place else again and everything I have seen or heard or experienced since has confirms it.”
