Update on AZ Basketball Recruiting

Arizona has had a flurry of recruiting activity over the last couple of weeks. Here's a look at where the Cats stand with some highly touted 2010 recruits as well as one that has been under the radar:

Kadeem Jack - The 6-8, 210-pound New York Rice power forward apparently has been rising quickly on the national radar. The big turning point for him was when he put up 24 points and 20 rebounds against Jayvaughn Pinkston, considered by many to be the best player in the New York and in the top 15 power forwards in 2010. He will take an official visit to Arizona this weekend as UofA hosts Cal and Stanford. He is considering a number of other schools but Arizona gets first crack.

Josh Selby - considered by Rivals.com to be the second best point guard in the 2010 class and top 5 overall player is basically down to Arizona, Kansas and Kentucky. Not sure if Arizona has the best shot among the other two schools to land Selby but they are certainly in the running.  

Doron Lamb -  a combo guard and top 20 recruit of 2010 has narrowed his list down to four: Arizona, Kansas, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Lamb won't make his decision until after the NCAA Tournament so I don't know how well that bodes for UofA but it's a good sign that they've made at least one final four.

Among other unsigned 2010 recruits, Arizona appears to still be in the running for Guard Trey Zeigler (ranked #26 overall), Point Guard Ray McCallum (ranked #60 overall), Forward Julian Washburn (ranked #95 overall), and Guard Jordin Mayes (ranked #106 overall).

Arizona does have Guard Daniel Bejarano (#56 overall) already signed to a letter of intent. Bejarano is considered to be the best player in the State of Arizona and with the development of Derrick Williams, the Wildcats do appear to be in better shape for next year then it seemed at the beginning of this year. The biggest need is really at the point guard position, where Nic Wise's absence will be felt the most.
