Q&A with Greg Calixte –

1. Why did you choose Mason?
Calixte – I chose Mason because as soon as I stepped on campus I felt like I was apart of a family. From the coaching staff, to the players, to even some of the students. Everyone welcomed me, accepted me, and made me feel at home which was huge! Also, the tremendous effort from Coach Paulsen and Coach Kelly, they have a plan for me and my future at George Mason.
2. Do you see yourself making an immediate impact?
Calixte – Yes, I do see myself as an impact player. Ever since Coach Paulsen starting watching me, he told me he sees me getting big minutes as a freshman. But Of course nothing is guaranteed or promised, I will have to go in there and work as hard as everyone else to earn my minutes.
3. What is your strongest skill set?
Calixte – My strongest skill sets are my ability to pass out of the post, ability to run the floor, my rebounding, developing mid range jumper, footwork in the post, and creating my own shot.
4. Who else were you recruited by?
Calixte – I had about 15 offers including Quinnipiac, William and Mary, UAB, USF.
5. What are your initial thoughts of campus?
Calixte – I loved everything about the campus! The size, location, everything about it was beautiful.
6. Who has helped you get to this point the most?
Calixte – My Mom-Elna Calixte, Uncle Khaliq Drew, and Coach Dwayne Murray
