Boyne City's 2015 Corey Redman Ends Recruitment Early
Boyne City's 6'4 2015 guard/wing Corey Redman played so well at Central Michigan's camp over the past week that he was offered a scholarship. It didn't take Corey long to accept. Corey was out spending some time with friends but All Eyes on U Hoops got a chance to talk to his coach, and father, Nick Redman, about the commitment.
"It happened so fast, his mom went to pick him up, and Coach Davis called me and told me Corey committed." Coach Redman said. "We have brought our team down to team camp last year, and with Corey playing as an incoming freshmen we got to the semi finals. We also visited during underclassman recruitment day so we already loved the campus and the facilities." Nick said. "In talking to this coaching staff it seemed like they wanted him, and we think the style of play that coach Davis is bringing in is going to be a great fit."
Such an early commitment may raise some questions to some but Nick Redman is not worried about it. " I asked Coach Davis if he was going to pull the scholarship down the line and he told me the only way that happens is if Corey has any problems in school or off the court, I assured him, neither of those would ever happen." Coach Redman added "On our end we are totally committed and very happy. It is a great fit, being two hours away, and now Corey has three more years to get stronger as he prepares to play there."
Corey is also a pretty good football player, where he plays quarterback and is slatted to start on Varsity this coming fall as a sophomore. "Playing QB helps him be as mentally tough as he is." Coach Redman said. "I know I am going to be very tough on him on the basketball court, but in football being the quarterback you have a lot of things you have to deal with and I think that helps him."
Having the decision out of the way Corey can focus on enjoying high school and winning in both football and basketball. "We have a young team but we should be pretty good." Coach Redman said "We lost a close game to the state runners up last year, Traverse City St Francis, so we are focused and working hard to try to win a state championship in the next few years."
As far as off the court Nick Redman assures you that Corey is someone you can count on. "He has a great attitude and a very high character. He is not someone you have to worry about. He plays really hard, and will do what ever we need him to do in order to win." One of the most impressive things about Corey has been since he committed Nick said. "He is no different, some guys after committing division 1 might walk around with their chest out and all that stuff, but he is the same 15 year old kid he was before."
