“As of right now,” Cochran said, “I will probably wait till, during, or the end of my season (to commit).”

“Rhode Island, Eastern Michigan, Oakland, Western, and Cleveland State and a couple others are recruiting me the hardest.”

Xavier has a specific set of criteria which will influence his college decision when he is ready.

“Style of play, how they develop players, relationship with the coach,” Cochran chimed in.

“And just a place I will have a chance to contribute right away.”

For now, Xavier shifts his attention to Huron’s upcoming campaign.  Cochran headlines a trio of talented senior guards in Jalen Thompson and Dave Wren.  The River Rats return four starters from a season ago, and will start the season as a top 15 team in Michigan.  Expectations will be high at Huron this year, with the ultimate goal of capturing a Class A state title.

“Going into my last season, I’m expecting a state championship,” Cochran noted.

“That’s the high expectations I’m setting for me any my team.  I’m not saying it’s all or nothing, but that’s just our expectations as a team.”
