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

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.
