UCLA Picks it Up With Comanche
In his own eyes, though, he still has a long way to go.
"I think the summer is going good so far, and I've developed a lot," Comanche said. "But I still have a lot of development I need to make. It's not really one thing, just my whole game. I need to work on posting up better, my shot, rebounding the ball better. I still need to get stronger. There are plenty of areas I need to get better."
He said he's added a good ten or fifteen pounds in the last year, putting him closer to 210 or 215 now, and he said he can notice the added strength when he play defense especially.
Schools have taken notice as well, and right now, three are standing out to Comanche by how hard they're recruiting him.
"Arizona is definitely recruiting me hard, as is NC State and UCLA," Comanche said. "I actually have an official visit planned to Arizona in September."
Comanche has a plan for that official visit, with the goal being to go behind the scenes of the Wildcats' program and figure out if he'd be a good fit.
"I just want to talk to the players and see how they like it," Comanche said. "I want to see how they interact with the coaching staff. I just want to get a feel for how it really is there."
NC State has also been consistently one of the schools Comanche has mentioned as recruiting him the hardest. Right now, they're pushing hard for an official visit, but Comanche isn't sure where he'll take his remaining four.
"They really want me to come out for a visit," Comanche said. "I'm still trying to narrow it down to my five officials. They can see me in their program running the floor with them, pushing the ball. They really like me."
UCLA has stepped up its recruitment of Comanche considerably in the last few months, and it's something Comanche has clearly taken note of.
"They just tell me they like how I play, how I can get up and down the court, post up, shoot it a little bit," Comanche said. "They just like my game. Coach Grace and Coach Alford have both been on me hard.
"UCLA is in Los Angeles, too, which is home, so that's cool."
Many local players opt to take unofficial visits to UCLA and USC rather than use up an official visit for the trip, but Comanche said he's not sure what he'll do yet.
"I'll probably take an unofficial visit to UCLA at some point, and then possibly take an official at a later date," Comanche said. "I just don't know yet."
Comanche, who wants to take all five officials before deciding, is also considering Connecticut, USC, Arizona State, and California for the final four officials.
"I want to do all five, but I could make my decision any time," Comanche said.
