2015 Chance Comanche Commits to Arizona

After visiting Arizona, 2015 big man Chance Comanche has made it official. Comanche is the latest addition to the Wildcats’ star studded 2015 recruiting class that also includes Justin Simon, Ray Smith, and Allonzo Trier.

At 6-10, Comanche gives Arizona a much needed post recruit to go along with a very talented trio of guards and wings.

Ultimately, Comanche said that his comfort level with the coaching staff and Arizona’s track record for producing players were the reasons why he favored the Wildcats.

“I feel comfortable around the coaches and players,” Comanche said. “They make me feel like I can get what I want out of life there.”

“When I got to Tucson we went out to a restaurant and had a great time,” Comanche said. “I toured the basketball facilities and the campus and absolutely loved it.

“I hung out with some of the players and went to the football game. Then on Sunday morning we went to breakfast and I told Coach Miller I wanted to play here.”

Comanche will be in an excellent position to contribute in the post, especially if Arizona’s current front court of Kaleb Tarczewski, Brandon Ashley, and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson are lured by the NBA.

“I feel really comfortable with the coaches and the players,” Comanche said. “They welcomed me with open arms. Coach Miller and Coach Pasternack were great throughout my recruitment and I am happy to join a great program.”

“My goals are to win a national championship, become Pac-12 Player of the Year and in time hopefully get to the NBA,” said Comanche.

    All of our recruits have big hearts. I like Comanche goals. He’ll gain weight and strength this year and climb up the rankings, making Sean Miller look like a prophet yet once again. My advice to him would be to do as Larry Bird once did….practice his dribbling, up and down stairs, left and right handed, for hours every day. .

    Chance has almost limitless potential. I really hope he becomes the blocking machine that Arizona hasn’t had in a while.

    Good decision, Chance! You are growing in lots of ways, and it’s smart to be joining a growing successful team under a smart, passionate, kind, and sincere coach. Arizona is on the rise, and coach Miller is recruiting championship caliber players, who are well rounded young men who are of good character, like you Chance. Miller also recruits a well balanced class each year, as evidenced by the last four years. We are watching a great coach evolve before our eyes. He will be ranked among the best coaches of all time. Exceptional players, like Chance, are drawn here, and that will accelerate, as it has been doing, in future years.

    With this kid’s length, if he could learn how to shoot Kareem’s patented sky hook, he would be absolutely deadly. How about inviting Abdul-Jabbar to Tucson, Coach Miller?

    “…and in time hopefully… ” – this is a great sign. Not the type of narcissistic I-am-a-one-year-wonder-so-I-will-definitely-go-to-the-NBA” comment that some blue grass state coach likes to hear. This means he will be unselfish, he will work hard, and he will grow and develop like Solo and Nick Johnson. Excellent!
