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.
