Stauskas in Ann Arbor today
"I just feel so happy to be playing again," he told GoBlueWolverine. "After my high school season I hurt my knee and now I am back to where I was it makes me feel great. What happened to me just makes me appreciate basketball that much more."
So with Nik already committed to Michigan what is the point of coming up to visit Ann Arbor.
"I just came up here to show this coaching staff some love because of the love they have shown me. The staff were at just about all my games, and didn't have to be. I was already committed. They followed me around to watch me play. I just wanted to make sure everytime they left from watching me play that the staff would say I am sure glad we signed that guy. I just didn't want to let them down."
Staukas always knew the Wolverines was a place he wanted to be.
"I told my dad: even though I am being recruited by a lot of these colleges, somehow, some way, I always knew that I would ended up here at Michigan. My AAU coach asked me what I was doing with my recruitment -- he asked me what am I waiting for if Michigan has everything. I am happy with the decision that I have made."
He is noticing the other players at Michigan who have committed and he is happy about it.
"I am glad that about the additions to the team that Michigan is making -- they signed Zak Irvin. I try and talk with Glenn Robinson III through Facebook. That is how we catch up with each other."
The coaching staff has done a real good job keeping building a relationship with him.
"I really like the staff of Coach Alexander, Coach Jordan and Coach Meyers -- they are all real cool guys up there."
Tomorrow Nik will visit around campus -- and inside the basketball Arena at Crisler.
"I am going to be looking around and soaking it all in. I wanted to be able to play basketball with the players, but I can't. I will just be resting my knee and watching them play."
