Get To Know Ashton Pankey. DBR Did.

11/8/2009 8:23:07 PM Reader and frequent poster, Diamondback Russ, had the opportunity to talk to Terp recruit Ashton Pankey about his visit to College Park this weekend.  What follows is the transcript of that discussion:
After a busy weekend traveling to College Park for his official visit, taking his SAT's and an early train ride home to play in a New Jersey vs New York All Star game; Ashton Pankey took a few minutes to do a Q&A with me about his visit and where his recruitment stands.
  1. Talk about your visit. My Mom came on the visit with me.  We toured campus, met with the coaches and stuff.  We both feel comfortable about the visit to Maryland.  It was about a 3 hour train ride and she said if I go to Maryland she could make a lot of games.
  2. Do you have any family in the DC area? I had an uncle that lived there but he doesn’t anymore.
  3. You were originally going to visit several weeks ago then it was pushed back twice.  Tell me how you dealt with waiting to finally visit Maryland? It sucked because I really wanted to go.  But Coach Williams had a conference media obligation, and then my mom had something she had to do.  I didn't want to visit without her.  I couldn't wait to get there.  Then once I was there I didn’t want to leave.
  4. Who was your host? Dino, he's a real good guy.
  5. What did you think of the Terps system when you got to watch practice? They looked good. I think I’d fit because they get out and run the floor. I’m working on my handle so I can expand my game to be a 4/3 type player.
  6. What did the coaches say about how they’d use you? To contribute right away inside with rebounding.
  7. Which coach is your lead recruiter? Chuck.
  8. Are you familiar with the other recruits that have committed to Maryland in your class? No not really.  But I think we’re playing against Montrose Christian this year so after the game I can talk to Ross.
  9. In addition to Maryland what other schools have you visited and plan to visit? I’m going to Houston next weekend and then will compare things and make my decision in a couple of weeks.
  10. Did Maryland help their chances? YES most definitely.
