Kojo Mensah is a high school senior star guard on Notre Dame Prep in Massachusetts. He's known for doing everything on both ends of the floor. Rarely does a guard excel on both ends of the floor the way this kid does. InsideHoops.com met with Kojo for an exclusive interview.

InsideHoops.com: You're a senior now. How's the season going?

Kojo Mensah: It's going real good, we're like 23-4 now, we have around 16 more games left, so we're looking real good.

InsideHoops.com: What are your stats right now?

Kojo Mensah: About 18 points and 7 rebounds, something like that.

InsideHoops.com: Talk about the college recruiting process. You're pretty sought-after.

Kojo Mensah: Right now we're looking to find time I can get in-between the season where I can start visting my schools. That's what I'm going to do when I go back up to school, and talk to my father.

InsideHoops.com: Any preference on what type of school you go to? Large or small...

Kojo Mensah: Probably will be a large school, but it depends on who is there before me (in the lineup), so it depends on my playing time and everything, that's a key thing I'm basing it on.

InsideHoops.com: You wanna get out there and really ball right away.

Kojo Mensah: Yeah, I'm looking to get playing time right away, where I can make a big impact early, so I don't have to really sit behind anyone that much.

InsideHoops.com: Talk about your game. Your best skills.

Kojo Mensah: Defensively, I think I put a lot of pressure, when I'm playing straight-up man-to-man, and offensively creating my own shot, and creating for others, too. That's what I think I bring the most when I play.

InsideHoops.com: A point guard with scoring ability like a shooting guard.

Kojo Mensah: Yeah. I think I create for others and for myself.

InsideHoops.com: You haven't decided where you're going to school, yet.

Kojo Mensah: Not yet. I'm just looking at everything. I just gotta see where I want to visit.

InsideHoops.com: Are the offers coming in that you hoped would? Getting the right attention?

Kojo Mensah: Yeah, the offers are coming now. And coming up is the national prep tournament, so I'll probably increase it a little more after that. So, we're just going to wait. I'm going to wait till after that tournament to do anything.
