Seattle, WA (Future150) -- Tucker Haymond is leaving home for college, but he thinks it is for a good reason.
After taking a visit to Western Michigan's campus over the weekend, the 6-foot-5 shooting guard out of Garfield High (Wash.) made his decision on the spot.
"It's really just a great fit for me," Haymond acknowledged. "I liked the team. They made me feel at home. When I played with them, it was like we already had some sort of team chemistry because we play the same way."
After a long process of not knowing where he would be attending college, the senior says he has relieved a lot of stress.
"My decision takes a lot of pressure off of me. Now I know that I'm going to Western Michigan, and now I can work on getting better and improving," he said.
Haymond chose the Broncos over Seattle University, Montana State, and Idaho State.
"Coach Hawkins and the staff are great coaches. We just really clicked. I'm excited to be going to Western Michigan."
