Spurlock Talks to Bennett, Waiting to Meet Him
Caught up with Virginia recruit Tristan Spurlock, who said he spoke briefly this afternoon with the Cavaliers' new coach, Tony Bennett, and hopes to meet with Bennett early next week.
"I had a free period and he called me during my free period," said Spurlock, a forward who played this past season at Word of Life Academy in Springfield. "He told me he had just gotten down to U-Va., and I was his first phone call. He was going to meet with the players and then he was going to call me again tonight."
Spurlock said he was aware of Bennett's credentials at Washington State: Associated Press Coach of the Year in 2006-07, two NCAA tournament appearances and being relatively young, 39 years old. "I heard a raving report that he's really a good person as well," Spurlock said. "Right now, I want to sit down and meet with him and shee where I fit in his system. I heard he has a slow-it-down system. I want to see if he's changing it here."
Any meeting though, probably won't take place until next week; Spurlock is scheduled to play in Charm City Challenge all-star game this weekend in Baltimore.
"To even think about going through that four-year recruiting process again is very draining," Spurlock said. "Once you sign that letter-of-intent, you hope everything is good to go. Now I have to go with the flow. I'm definitely going to sit and listen and I'm definitely going to give him a chance."
