WPH: What are your thoughts on all of this?
RH: It's big for me. I know all of these people are out here to support me just because I'm coming to their school. That makes me feel good. I knew I had made the right decision, but now I really know. All these folks are here, and I haven't even started playing basketball yet.
WPH: What was going through your mind when you pulled into a packed parking lot?
RH: I didn't even expect all the people to be here. I thought it might just be a couple of people, and I was going to be cool with that. It's just a great feeling to see all of these people here.
WPH: What did you think of the question and answer session?
RH: You know me, I like the attention. I like goofing around. Anybody can talk to me and I'll be friendly and make them smile.
WPH: Your pretty good on the mic.
RH: I try, I try my best.
WPH: Is it nice to have this official and done?
RH: Yeah. I always knew I would be here at NC State ever since Coach Lowe walked in the door, but now that it's official, I know I'm into college now and now I can just focus on getting my grades and keep working on basketball.
WPH: Your head coach said your Walton High team is going to be better than last year.
RH: Definitely. We've got a lot of pieces. We're more of a friendly team. Last year it wasn't the greatest atmosphere. Sometimes we liked each other, other times we didn't. Now it's like everybody gets along.
WPH: Now it's Ryan Harrow's team?
RH: That's what they say, but I'm not that cocky type of person.
WPH: Your coach also said you've stepped up as a vocal leader.
RH: I want to win. It's my senior year. I've got a state championship ring in North Carolina, and now I'm trying to get one in Georgia to add to my collection.
WPH: Is it pretty cool for you and Lorenzo to both make it official on the same day?
RH: We always knew that we were going to be together. I guess the dream just keeps going.
WPH: Pretty cool for CJ to show up, huh?
RH: He just likes to mess around. I know he's going to be here with us. He just likes the attention just like me.
WPH: What would you like to tell the fans that couldn't make it out today?
RH: I really appreciate all of the support and I hope yall are ready for when I get here, because I'm ready to make yall happy.
