Selders Talks West Virginia
After the Cy Creek/Houston Westside scrimmage, it felt almost like a bit of déjà vu. "I'm going to take my talents to West Virginia," Houston (TX) Cypress Creek running back Jermichael Selders said. Remember what that sounds similar too? The hour long special in July which aired on ESPN during the frenzy of basketball free agents? OK, enough if that and there is no need to even go into further details. Before the Saturday scrimmage was finished, a few of Selders' teammates was joking around as they likely knew that he was set to announce his future plans at 12 p.m. By that time it was already 12:35 p.m. But it was all in fun because it was his choice it was naturally on his terms, and therefore on time. In the end, it came down to Baylor, Arkansas and the West Virginia squad in the quest to get the 5-foot-11, 185-pound Selders' commitment. Interestingly enough, West Virginia was a place that he has yet to visit. But believe that day will come soon enough and there were a many of factors that played into the final decision. "I have not had the chance to visit yet, but it three weeks I plan to visit. It is a running back school and it fits me," Selders said. "Arkansas offered a couple backs like me and they already committed and Baylor, I know I could have come up there and done something, but West Virginia just stuck out to me." One big key in the commitment was the relationship he built with his recruiting coach. Over time, the communications were strong and that helped make this call happen. Then again, Selders saw an opportunity here that seemed to be favorable for his future. "Me and (assistant) coach (Chris) Beatty have a good relationship. He (Beatty) told me that they offered a couple more people but I was not even worried about that," Selders said. "When Noel Devine leaves, I know I have the chance to come up there and make an impact on the team. It really was tough decision because I liked Baylor and I liked Arkansas too, but West Virginia was the best fit for me."
