Wilson on becoming an SVSU Men's Basketball student-athlete...

"I picked SVSU because the environment and atmosphere is great. I think the university suits me because when I step on to campus, the coaching staff and players make me feel as if I am a part of the SVSU family. I would like to thank the coaching staff for giving me an opportunity to be a part of the program and further my basketball career." 

Henry Ford CC head coach Chris Shepard...

"C.J. is a tremendous leader on and off the floor. His work ethic is second to none and he is a relentless competitor. On the floor he always made big shots when we needed them, and his tremendous basketball IQ allowed him to make high level decisions. He is a special player but more importantly a better person."

Randy Baruth on the addition of C.J. to the program...

"We are very excited to add C.J. to our program. He comes highly recommended from everyone he's played for and we feel he will be a great fit at SVSU. His desire to win and how hard he plays will mesh perfectly with our team. His vision and unselfish mentality will allow him to be a key contributor for us next season."
