    "Will Sheehey to me is a guys that is the epitome of what we want to build inside the program. He has a great basketball temperament, he has a real attitude to improve, athleticism and he is not even scratching the surface with his body. He has some real skills especially shooting the basketball. His mid-range game is outstanding, his three-point game is solid and he can finish at the basket. He plays with resolve. That is what we like. He came to us highly recommended and have great respect for his high school coach and AAU program. He has played high-level basketball and you see how seriously he is academically. When you listen to his questions, you know he is a true student-athlete. His athleticism, along with Victor's, are really going to upgrade us in a year."
