"Coach Mason told that they really liked me and wanted me to come in and visit, said Chris." "He told me I would have an opportunity to compete and play early in their program."

"I'm trying to reschedule some visits, but I don't know which school I will visit first, Chris said." "I've lost some of the coaches' numbers because I had problems with my phone; I should know more on the visit dates by then end of the week.
