"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns

This will only help him in college. It'll teach him how to study. I was the same, I didn't need to study in HS got to college and had no idea how to cope with it.
He's a HS kid so getting through to him is far from easy but just help him develop study habits and maybe even be frank with him. 'If you want to get to Michigan you're going to figure it out. Go to the library, go to a tutor, stay after school and get help every single day.'

My story may be a little different than some on here. I don't go to Michigan. Anyways, I hated school but was able to graduate HS easily and got into everywhere that I applied too but still didn't care. Had no direction nor motivation. I was going to school because you were supposed too not because I had a conviction for it and my grades suffered for it. I legitimately did not care at all. I just didn't want to be the kid that dropped out blah blah. I realized this a year in (luckily) and join the ANG so I wouldn't be drowning in debt for something I wasn't sure I would or wanted to finish. (I graduate in a month, I'll have over 180 credit hours for my undergrad ... I just floated around aimlessly)
2.5 years ago I decided to go back so I could commission and because i had finally found something I loved. Got declined by embry-riddle in Daytona for the engineering program.
I saved that email. I told my wife I was going to graduate college, get a pilot slot in the USAF and then write back to them telling them they made a mistake.
I graduate in 4 weeks with a 3.75 and yes I got a pilot slot (leave for training August) and am already thinking of what to write in my response.
My motivation? Being told I couldn't do it. That's how I have always been.
I assume you're asking because of a kid or loved one that's struggling? Just help them as much as you can. I'm sur eyou know what motivates them so use that and just know that they are going to figure it out it just takes some longer than others.

it's pretty easy to explain. These kids don't want to be there long enough to develop and learn a system. They want to be there for 1 year, lay some pipe, hit some 3's and head to the NBA. Can't fault em.

Yeah kinda wanted the Browns to draft him at 19 (but I'm excited about Erving) but he has a case of the dropsies to go along with all the potential in the world.

Someone could still very easily say that you have nothing to do with the football team and mean just as much to the players on the team as the fan that didn't go to UM at all.

Walking cast I think? Probably some injury/surgery to her foot or ankle.

Nope, still wouldn't. I'd rather pay a couple bucks to watch an NFL and/or college football game than pay for a piss ton of what I don't want.

It's about getting big off the rookie scale and being able to develop while getting paid and by NBA coaches ... I'm not saying it's the right thing to do but its a lot of the reason to do it.

Don't care about their 40 time. I'd rather have one like Mike Hart who was slow straight line but incredible in the hole and around traffic.
