Why I picked Juniata: “I picked Juniata because of the great coaching staff as well as the opportunities it provides me for my desired degree in business.”

Greatest high school achievement: “Going deep into the state playoffs.”

Coach Chris Drenning’s quote: “Michael is going to have a terrific career at Juniata. He’s athletic and a very good 3-point shooter. In addition, he has perhaps the best mid-range game of any player I’ve ever coached. He’s very coachable, a tough defender, and his versatility is tailor-made for the college game. He and his teammates took our program to heights we’ve never seen before, and he will be sorely missed by our program in the year to come. However, we all look forward to his successes at the next level.”
