Four-star shooting guard Collin Chandler announced his top six schools on Tuesday and the Arizona Wildcats made the cut along with the Gonzaga Bulldogs, Oregon Ducks, Stanford Cardinal, Utah Utes and BYU Cougars.
Listed at 6-foot-4, 170 pounds, Chandler is the No. 71 player and No. 13 combo guard in the 2022 class. He’s also the top player in Utah. He attends Farmington High School.
Chandler took an official visit to the UA on June 27. He has also officially visited Stanford and Utah State. He told Travis Branham of 247Sports that academics are important to him when looking at schools.
247Sports analyst Brandon Jenkins says this about Chandler’s game:
“Chandler is a competitive guard who always plays in attack mode. He is still a baby physically but has great length, burst, and solid skill. He beats defenders off the rip or bounce with an excellent first step. A plus athlete who has bounce and is more athletic than he appears, he thrives in transition and enjoys attacking the rim when the lanes are available. He shoots it off the catch or dribble and has the ability to knock down the three-point shot when left open. He still needs to improve his handle on the ball versus high pressure but Chandler will likely thrive in an up-tempo system with his play style and has good long-term upside.”
So far, Arizona’s 2022 class consists of 4-star big man Dylan Anderson, the No. 60 player in the class. Head coach Tommy Lloyd has said it’s been “a little bit hard” to recruit at the UA.
