Tyler Ennis liking Arizona Wildcats

Considering there's still a potential NCAA tournament invite this year and with a loaded 2012 class coming in next, it's a bit down the road to be thinking about the 2013 recruiting class.

But 2013 point guard Tyler Ennis, a four-star prospect according to ESPNU's rankings and the 41st overall player in the class, has the Arizona Wildcats on his radar.

The 6-foot-2, 180 pounder out of St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, N. J., told ZagsBlog.com that he'd fit in with Sean Miller's team after visiting Tucson this weekend and taking in the 65-63 win against the UCLA Bruins. He also pointed out his interest with the Wildcats in an interview with Five Star Basketball.

Originally out of Brampton, Ontario, Canada, Ennis is a classic pick-and-roll point guard, and he'd likely be a solid addition to the team and learn behind Josiah Turner, should he still be around in a couple of years. And with the 2012 class boasting three big men who are rated in the top 10 of their respective class, those opportunities -- ones that aren't remotely available for Turner this season -- will be aplenty.

"I really think that it’s a good fit in regards to what they’re looking for," Tony McIntyre of the CIA Bounce AAU team told SNY.tv by phone. "It’s really going to come down to how well they recruit him and the comfort that he feels with Sean Miller."

Last week, we posted about SNY.tv's documentary on Ennis moving into the prep school from Canada. And after his visit to Arizona, things are just heating up for the point guard. He told Adam Zagoria that Arizona, Syracuse, Georgia Tech and Louisville are in the lead, but Kansas and Duke still have plenty of time to get involved in his recruitment.

If anything, it'll be interesting to see how the guard situation develops in the coming years. Should Ennis arrive at Arizona for his freshman season, Josiah Turner will only be a junior, Jordin Mayes a senior and Gabe York a sophomore, creating quite the logjam at the one on Miller's depth chart.
