ESPNHS: What other school’s did you consider?
Carolyn Jamison: “Other schools I considered looking at were UNC, Virginia, Florida, and Duke. but since I tore my ACL last season it put a little hold on things.”
ESPNHS: What made Maryland such an attractive choice?
CJ: “Maryland was an attractive choice for me because it was close enough to home, but far enough away were I can do my own thing. My family is very large and we are all very close, so they all wanted to be able to see me in my college career. Also I love the atmosphere of Maryland and the girls on the team are awesome, and it just felt right.”
ESPNHS: What surprised you about the recruiting process?
CJ: “The recruiting process is very fast paced, but since I was injured it didn't hit me quite as hard.”
ESPNHS: What was the most important question you asked college coaches during the process?
CJ: “When I was talking to Maryland my main question was if I was going to get to play, because that is my main goal. But I also asked about academics because I do struggle in a lot of areas.”
ESPNHS: What one piece of advice would you give to other players who are just starting on the recruiting process?
CJ: “I would definitely tell other players starting to just take your time, because in the end you will make the right decision and it will all work out to your advantage.”
