Sam Webb has a really good article on DetNews about Da' Shawn Hand's visit this weekend.
We've heard it before, but it's worth hearing again: this sounds like a really good kid. He's very focused on his studies. There are some quotes towards the bottom of the article about Alabama's Dean of Engineering, as well as the other competitors for his services (Florida, South Carolina and Virginia Tech).
There's a lot of good stuff in the article, but my favorite quote (on questions he asks himself about each potential school):
Said Hand: "Can I live there for five years (and) do I get along with the people there? (Other factors will be) coaching staff, academics, teammates, the environment, my family, and food. I'm an eater. I like seafood, but you can't eat everybody's seafood . I've learned that. The place has to have good food. If you don't have good food, then I don't know why you're a college."
