“Matt joining our program has us extremely happy”, added Bormet. “I have the utmost regard for his family, and we are certain that Matt will be a serious, high-character student-athlete for us. He puts forth a lot of effort and enjoys competing. I’m eager to see what he can do in this situation. He should get along well with our team and our program, in my opinion.”
