People ask why did my son pick Miami-Ohio to play college basketball. Afterall, they play in the mid-major MAC conference. Competitive but never great.
Well he could have gone to a "bigger" school but we received great advice from a good friend who is the top Assistant Coach at University of Florida. He said "go somewhere they LOVE YOU! Coach Charlie Coles is a living legend who LOVED Jon.
Miami has a BEAUTIFUL campus and GREAT academics. Not too far from home but far enough. Great basketball history and play a tough schedule (14th toughest in USA this year. My brother Ron said yes and that was enough for us.
He has a chance to make an impact and get a good education. What more could a parent ask for? Take a look and check it out for yourself. I just say "have a great time"!
