Shooting guard for Bradford Christian Academy When ten made his first official visit to Michigan in mid-October. The 6-foot-4, 185-pound four-star has also taken on a host of unofficial faces as he begins his junior year.
“The hiring process was fun,” he said. “It was interesting to see these different schools and overall it was a blessing.”
Outside of Michigan, the Tengu is also favored by Georgetown, Rutgers, Providence, and others. He currently has no scheduled visits.
“I have no other official visits,” he said. “The season has started so I’m really focused on that. After the season, I will probably have other kits.”
When it comes to Michigan State, assistant coaches John Borovich as well as Doug Wojcik were the head coaches involved in Teng’s recruitment.
“I have become very close to them over the past few weeks and I feel comfortable talking to them. Over time, we will become closer to each other.”
During the actual visit, the family environment and playing style really stood out for Ten.
“The visit was great, it was nice to see everything,” he continued. “The whole university is just one big family, it is a legendary school. The overall environment was great.”
“When I was there, I saw them play hard, get away from pindowns a lot and put up screens for shooters.”
“When we did a compassionate video with me at the end, we saw that my playing style from AAU and the school is somewhat similar to how they play. I also like to get off pindowns a lot, so it was great to see that in their offense.”
Ten also watched the Spartans on TV many times whenever he could.
“Whenever I had the opportunity, I watched them,” he said. “I watched them against Gonzaga and Kentucky and they’re a great team this year.”
For now, Ten will remain focused on his high school season and will focus more on his post-season recruitment.
“I’m looking forward to winning,” he said. “We’re a new team, so we need to keep learning how to play with each other.”
