Mike Fuline | Head Coach | Men’s Basketball | Mount Union

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

We are looking for young men who are talented but also fit our team dynamic. Will they get along with players, will they work hard to achieve TEAM goals etc. The character of a student-athlete and of their family usually determines the success of the potential recruit.


Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled? 

We have a young man who just ended his freshman year. Jarrett was coveted by many schools and fortunately chose us. He works as hard as any young man I have been around. This summer he will stay on campus to get better while also working 40 hrs a week! Jarrett was also named the OAC player (freshman) of the year.
