A lot of newspaper stories about high school athletes signing with this college or that college include a lot of similar content. The athlete liked the school when he or she visited. The people there were nice. The coach was great when I met him or her.
The meat quote from Steven Peoples is a little different.
“They gave me this opportunity, and I’m going to take it,” he said. “I didn’t want to go to a D-II school and wonder if I could have done it or not. I just took the opportunity.”
