Orange Co. High School 2015 Wing Rebecca Harvey Commits to Randolph College
Q: What made you decide on Randolph?
A:I decided to choose Randolph because I think the school fits me best. The campus is really pretty. I like the size of the classes and they have the major I want. The team is also super nice and I really like the coaches.
Q: Who were your final choices?
A: My finals choices were Randolph College, Bridgewater College, and Hollins University.
Q: What do you plan to major in?
A:I plan on majoring in Sport and Exercise Studies. Once I finish that I am planning on doing a 1 year Graduate studies program at Randolph and gain a Master’s in Special Education.
Q: How has the staff at Randolph said they plan to use you?
A:I really like the coaches at Randolph. Both of them have told me pretty much the same thing. They have told me I would mainly play the 4 position but depending on who we are playing and the size the other team has I could also play a 3 or 5. Randolph has two senior post players so next year there will be big shoes to fill. They have told me they could really use me and hope I can fill those spots.
Q: What advice would you give student-athletes going through the recruiting process?
A: Start looking at schools early. Your junior year is a good year to start figuring out what schools you might be interested in. Start emailing coaches saying you are interested in playing. Go to games if you can to get a good feel about how the teams play and the coaches coach and see if it fits you. Your senior year visit schools and try to start getting to know what the school and team is like as soon as you can. If you start visiting schools early you will be able to cross schools off of the list and if you are deciding between a couple you can visit them a couple times and it won't be too late in the season.
