Just have a few updates for this morning.
Arizona picked up another big recruit yesterday with a verbal commit from Dewayne Peace (South Grand Prairie, Texas). He said that one of his main reasons for coming to Arizona was the opportunity to play for a program on the rise. He also attributed the move to the closeness with the coaching staff he felt. Sonny Dykes at offensive coordinator was another factor. Sonny Dykes was a former coach at Texas Tech and knows how to throw the ball. This will definitely help (obviously with Peace) with recruiting great WR's to Tucson. Peace is a three star commit. Arizona now has 22 commits for the 2009 class.
Adam Hall, the number three rated recruit in the state of Arizona, has set up a press conference for Friday, January 30, 2009. Based on what this kid is saying, I am very confident that he is going to sign with Arizona in February. Adam's dad had this to say about the Arizona visit on Monday:
"It went really good," James Hall said. "They talked about a number of things. A lot of information was shared as far as how he can come in and impact either side of the ball. I'm really happy with what I heard."
Greg Hansen from azstarnet.com breaks down why Pitino would be a great fit at Arizona. I personally think it is a longshot, but he would be a badass fit if he came.
Hope this is enough to get you through the morning. I'll be back later to post the Washington Huskies preview.
