Matias hoping for December decision

Josue Matias has played the recruiting process very close to the vest so far and though he doesn't appear ready to go public with all of his thoughts he does have somewhat of a timetable for things in mind.

Matias' coach at Union City (N.J.) Union Hill has told him that he is currently at 22 scholarship offers, with the most recent coming from Michigan.

"I've just been staying home with the team and practicing lately," Matias explained. "I don't think I have any plans yet. I'm planning on going out to some colleges but I'm not sure when.

"I think December would be the right time for me to decide. Everything, like my season, is going to be over by then."

Matias said he will probably not narrow his list prior to his official visits. He said his officials will be to schools that are either too far from home to visit on his own, or simply to the schools he likes the most at that time.

This summer the only recruiting related event Matias participated in was the Big Man Camp at Rutgers.

"I think I performed good, but I can always perform better," he said. "I'm never comfortable with how I perform because I'm always thinking about what I can improve on."

As he has said in the past, Matias thinks location and comfort level will be the two biggest factors in his decision. Though he will not necessarily choose the school closest to home, being able to travel to see his family is an important thing for him. His family is also pushing for him to take that into consideration.
