How did his trip to Berkeley compare with his previous two visits?
"It was definitely different," Mike said. "The weather, definitely, and the academics, being in the class, it's going to be a tough decision."

"He definitely wants them to be a tight group, because they're basically their own team within the team, and he wants them to be able to do things off the field together, and build themselves as young men," Mike said.
