Some of your teammates were also recruited by Boise State (Chacho Ulloa, Camryn Bynum), are you working on recruiting other teammates to The Blue?

"For my other teammates of course I try everyday to get those guys to come with me but they are committed so it's hard but it still doesn't hurt to try."
