Welge: Who and when was your first offer?
Charles: Michigan, in April my eighth-grade year. I had attended one of their camps and after I got home they reached out to my AAU coach and I got an offer that evening. It was surreal. They’re an amazing program, and I was in eighth grade, hadn’t even played a game in high school or even knew where I was going for high school.
