After hearing the heartfelt words of congratulations from family and friends, Antwan “AJ” Epps stood up to give thanks and reaffirm his college commitment in front of family, friends and classmates at Granby High School.
With the biggest grin on his face and both hands gripping the brim of his hat, he pulled it down over his head and proceeded to sign his letter of intent to Hampton University.

recruit757: What made you choose Hampton?
AJ: What made me choose Hampton was of course the full scholarship, being close to home and the way Coach Buck lets the team run.
recruit757: How much of an impact did your family play in your decision?
AJ: My family played a big role in my decision because I wanted to stay as close as I could to them. My parents also thought Hampton would give me the platform to be great.
recruit757: Now that you’ve signed, is there any pressure off of you?
AJ: Lots of pressure off of me, now I can, not really relax but now I can relax but I’ll still be in the gym working on my craft.
When asked what kind of player will Hampton be getting in AJ Epps he responded with, “they’re getting a leader, a poised point guard, someone who can win games, lead they’re team, score when he can score, get others involved and most of all, play defense. I’m just a dog all around”
