I think it would be the coaching staff. I really got to know coach (Mike) Hopkins, who recruited me. Syracuse is a little bit differentt. Boeheim doesn't play a big role in the recruiting process.

"Gotta talk about the rookie, Wes Johnson. He’s got this golden-boy image – and he is – but you just gotta watch him. He’s quiet, and it’s the quiet ones you’ve gotta keep an eye on.
