Craig Victor could commit anytime from here on out. We believe he is a silent commit and now the coaching staff will find the right time for him to make it public. We asked Victor if there has been any bumps in the road in his recruitment lately and he said that everything was right on track.
Stanley Johnson will visit on September 14th and Arizona will do its best to secure a commitment from him then. We know Johnson really wants to take other visits but think Arizona has the best chance to land the coveted Mater Dei wing.
Justise Winslow could also visit for Red/Blue and Arizona is in a battle with Duke for his services. We believe Duke will be tough to beat but also know Arizona has a legitimate shot to land Winslow.
2014 Kameron Chatman will visit Arizona next month and in our opinion Arizona leads. Damon Stoudamire is the main reason for the success Arizona has had with Chatman as he went to high school with Chatman’s father.
Former Arizona basketball player Joseph Blair has been helping out in workouts this summer.
Nick Johnson is a beast and talk has started about him leaving after this season. He’s looked great.
Aaron Gordon and Rondae Jefferson are working on jump shooting and both excel in the team setting. Getting them to improve individually will go a long way come January-March and that’s the staffs focus with them.
The staff is working very hard to stretch Brandon Ashley’s 15-17 ft range to 21-22. And it’s going real well. You can expect him to take a lot more threes. The staff is hoping he will have improvement much like Derrick Williams did in his sophomore year.
Matt Korcheck is showing a lot of improvement and is looking to get his jumper consistent out to 14 ft. His biggest hurdle keeping him from playing back up minutes is his confidence.
Zach Peters shows promise for height off the bench but they still don’t know if he will play because of the concussions.
Gabe York is in great shape has looked good at this early juncture.
