Charise Wilson Makes Her Decision

Charise Wilson a junior at St. Anthony’s High School has made her decision to play college basketball at Northeastern University. 

Q. What schools were recruiting you?

A. “I had offers from Northeastern, Mount St. Mary’s and Central Connecticut State I also had a lot of interest from Hofstra, Delaware, Boston U., Univ. of Hartford, Towson, Drexel, LaSalle, St. Bonaventure, Siena, Bucknell, Sacred Heart, Duquesne, Memphis and many other schools I can’t remember them all but that’s some of the schools that contacted me a lot.”

Why did you choose Northeastern?”

A. “They offered me in September and they were the one school that was always there, while other schools were very interested then I didn’t hear from them then I would again, then others schools would pop-up disappear and then come back.  So, I felt like Northeastern showed the most interest the entire time.” 

Q. Did you visit the school?

A. “When I went to visit the school, met the coaching staff I knew I liked the school a lot, it just felt right, the campus was beautiful and everything looked brand new and it’s a great academic school.  Coach LaForce and Coach Brit are great I already feel like a part of their family and I can’t wait to go there, I like everything about the school academically and athletically, I just felt the school was perfect for me.  I also felt that I would be successful when I graduate from Northeastern.”

Q. What did you think of the coaches during your visit?

A. The coaches are a big reason why I felt it would be a perfect school for me, they really made me feel comfortable and part of their Northeastern family, hard to explain but my dad and I liked them a lot when we went to visit."

Q. Do you know anything about the team and their style of play?

A. “I watched them play and I like their style of play its very similar to Riverside (my AAU team) and St. Anthony’s and I think it fits the way I like to play, so this was another reason why I like Northeastern.”

Q. Any last comments you would like to add?

A. “I’m just happy it’s over, a lot of calls, e-mails and it puts a lot of pressure on you, so I’m happy and I’m smiling because it’s over.”
