IN THE FINAL INSTALLMENT OF "THE DIARY OF DEVONTA POLLARD," LOOKING FORWARD WHILE ALWAYS REMEMBERING HIS PAST AND HIS FATHER... PLUS, FIND OUT WHAT TAY IS LOOKING FOR WHEN HE GOES ON ALL OF HIS COLLEGE VISITS... COACHES BEWARE...

"this is the diary of devonta pollard." "in the coming weeks, this dandy dozen, mcdonald's all-american, will make one of the biggest decisions in his life... where will he take his talents once he graduates from kemper county high school? like everything else in tay's life, momma jessie won't be far behind to help out with the process of elimination..." "i know she says she's going to let me go where i want to go but she's still going to have some say so in it, some kind of way." "devonta is going to go to college for two years at the most and that's because they are making them go two years now. once those two years up, he's going to enter the draft and he's going to be in the top 15, in the first round top fifteen." "tay's taken visits to texas and missouri so far... he's still scheduled to go to georgetown, mississippi state, alabama and kentucky... no matter where he ends up, the coaching staff better be on point..." "i want to be around a bunch of coaches that i can depend on. i can go to and talk to when i'm not around my mom. share with them my problems and they can give me feedback and i can trust them with anything and not only that i want them to be able to push me and get the best out of me, not just let me settled just because i'm good, even if i am going a hundred miles per hour, they need to try and get more out of me because it's, you never can be great." "nats: kendera done came a long way too." "despite everything tay has been through in his teenage years, he's held on to basketball for relief and his best friend nicholaus giles says, believe it or not, tay is one of the most positive people he knows..." "devonta has a really positive attitude. he lets nothing negative get to him, like he been still staying strong, still keeping his mind focused on basketball even though his dad passed. that's a bad thing that happened but he's still been keeping his mind focused though." "nats: this is it. this is it." "to tay, staying positive is a must, since he says, there's only better days to come..." "i'm getting all of my downs and everything out of the way at a young age so when i do make it to the top or wherever i want to be, i won't have to worry about anything."
