"Michael is a flat-out winner. He was the leader on one of the best high school teams in the country, not because he's one of the nation's best scorers but because of his intangibles, intensity and passion. With his athleticism and length, he has the ability to be one of our best defenders. I'm looking for Michael to be the fire of this team."
-- Head coach John Calipari
