Sean Miller has been at Arizona for about a month or so now. He has been able to recruit Kyryl Natyazhko, Solomon Hill, Kevin Parrom, and what looks like will now be Lance Stephenson? That is stunning for one month of work. This easily makes Arizona a top 10 recruiting class this year. How well will Arizona perform in the Pac-10 this year?
He has done a good job bringing Kevin Parrom and Kyryl Natyazhko over from his Xavier reign. Also Solomon Hill is a good pick-up but still has a lot of work to do with the Team that loses Chase Budinger, Jordan Hill and Nic Wise
I have one question, why would Stephenson follow Kevin Parrom? I read that in ur last post. Do they play on the same AAU? Very close friends? Do u know why? Let me know. and clap clap if Zona picks up Lance Stephenson. Arizona is setting the bar for the Pac-10, recruitment wise. I always thought Pac-10 schools could of done just a little bit better recruiting for a PowerHouse conference. Not saying its not bad or anything! I should correct myself and say recruiting more prospects from the east coast, etc. The addition of Sean Miller has done this. And he has done a damn good job in such a little amount of time.
I think the Wildcats next season will be the college basketball's version, of the Atlanta Hawks...A team filled with a lot of young athletic forwards, ready to get out on the break, for easy opportunities...I'm mad point guard, Abdul Gaddy, didn't wait it out to see what Arizona was going to do with their coaching situation, instead of decommiting and signing to the University of Washingston, so fast...But regardless, they still put together a solid recruiting class, in less than no time, and with Lance Stephenson on board, they can make some noise in the Pac-10...Especially with the top teams, USC, UCLA, and Arizona State, all losing key players and haven't put together much of a 2009 recruiting class
They are both from New York and have come across each other a couple of times. I know Parrom plays in Connecticut but he started in NY with Lance. When asked today about their relationship Parrom said,“I’m not a recruiter. I’m just a player. If he wants to come, he can come.” Check out www.zagsblog.com
It's between Memphis and Arizona only
I've been impressed with Sean Miller's ability to recruit. Don't forget that Nic Wise doesn't have an agent yet, he's not expected to be drafted, and with a new coach in place he may decide to return. That would make this team pretty strong next year. I would be interested in seeing if Stephenson would really come to Arizona. It would be an interesting pick to say the least.
Don, Gaddy wanted to go to UW because the coaching situations was out of wack at Zona, you know this...that must have been difficult to go through. Plus, he wants to play in front of his family and friends and playing at UW offers this to him. Uw is on the rise my dude...please believe. I think its the better pick for Abdul, personaly and its a better team right now. Even though Zona is on the rise recruiting top players. Thankyou UdAmWaIvLsD-Cats, for the info, very useful.
