Billy Wampler talks about his decision to go to Drake
Eau Claire (WQOW) -- After a whirlwind recruitment process, Billy Wampler has decided Drake will be his new home. The Eau Claire Regis senior announced the decision via his Twitter account on Sunday. Wampler averaged over 25-points per game this past season. Drake plays in the Missouri Valley Conference, finishing 15-16 last year.
Monday, Wampler tells News 18 Sports that Drake's coaching staff was a big factor in his decision.
"I really think that's what set Drake apart from everybody," says Wampler, "all those coaches on the Drake coaching staff are my best friends and I can go to them for anything, not even basketball reasons, they're just great guys. I really felt at home with these guys and these guys really just made me feel like I belong at Drake, and that's kind of what set me apart. After I played pickup with the guys, I felt like I belonged there and I felt at home. So it was just the right decision for me."
