Head Coach at De Paul University Athletics Patrick Savage commented: "Tonderai has settled in magnificently here at De Paul. Our friends at Oaklands College in St Albans England have a great program for athletes in their junior years.Coach Anderson runs a comprehensive scheme that we fully endorse and we have invited him to Chicago to guest coach some of our senior athletes later in 2010. We hope that they produce some more potential athletes for us here at De Paul."
