This is the second year in a row that Suggs has made a prestigious U.S. National team, and captured gold.

Suggs is now back playing for the Grassroots AAU team, and they are in a tournament this weekend in Milwaukee. Gophers coach Richard Pitino was among many big-shots to watch Suggs this week.

Suggs is also an elite quarterback, and has offers from Ohio State, the Gophers, Iowa, Iowa St., and others.

As for basketball recruiting, Suggs plans on taking visits in the fall to Iowa, Ohio State, Duke, North Carolina, and Kansas. While at Iowa and Ohio State, he can also do more homework on the football programs. Suggs already visited Columbus in June.
