Birch will be coming to Las Cruces after a visit to Florida. Obviously NMSU is up against some heavy hitters but the Aggies obviously have just a strong as chance of landing the former McDonalds All American. Number one is Ags assistant Paul Weir. Weir has a long standing relationship with Birch dating back to when he was recruiting NMSU senior point guard Hernst Laroche. Laroche and Birch played in the same AAU program with Brookwood Elite for a period of time. Birch is apparently also friends with 7-5 redshirt Sim Bhullar.
Birch would likely play right now at NMSU if he were here. He would certainly log major minutes at both post positions once he becomes eligible in the second semester as Bhullar, BJ West and Chili Nephawe and potentially Renaldo Dixon are slated as the options at the four and five next year.
