"It made a little difference, but it didn't change anything for me as far as my top three are concerned," he said.
Matthews indicated that his college decision will come in a few weeks. Until then he's got a busy schedule.
"I am heading out to Las Vegas on Thursday for an AAU tournament," he said. Matthews said that he was joining the South Carolina Celtics AAU team for the first time on the trip. He said he would be playing three-guard and power forward with the team.
Matthews also indicated that he wished to play basketball in college, but that football would play the lead role in picking where he goes to school.
Matthews and the rest of his teammates at Cheraw will take on perennial Palmetto state power Marlboro County in the first game of the season. When Matthews returns from Las Vegas he will start preparations for the start of the season, which is August 25.
