Arizona standing out for Hamilton

Arizona is in good shape for 2013 guard Isaac Hamilton, as he discusses why he likes the Wildcats, what he wants to improve on, and more.

It is no secret that the 2013 class is loaded at the guard position, especially on the west coast.

One player that adds to this depth is 6-foot-4 shooting guard Isaac Hamilton, out of Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw.

Hamilton already has plenty of schools recruiting him and a handful have emerged.

"Arizona, UCLA, USC, St. John's, UConn, and Washington are standing out," he said.

Hamilton believes that the quality of coaching at each school will play one of the biggest roles in where he ultimately decides to enroll.

"Straight up coaching, just coaching," said Hamilton.

If that is the case, Arizona should hold an advantage in this recruitment, as Hamilton gave a one-word answer of what he liked about the Wildcats.

"Coaching," he said. "Coach Book (Richardson) and Coach (James) Whitford are recruiting me. Coach (Sean) Miller came to my school at the beginning of the year to check on me."

When asked about any other factors that may weigh into his decision, the 2013 guard could really only think of one thing.

"I do want my family to come see my play though, so that (location) will part in to my recruitment," said Hamilton.

Although he still has a few years left of high school, Hamilton knows there is still work to be done before he is ready to make the jump to college.

"I need to get stronger to be one of the top players in my class," he said.

Like other recruitments in the 2013 class, this one will not be over any time soon.

However, it seems as though Arizona is in as good a position as any to land Hamilton, namely due to his admiration of the coaches and the close proximity of Los Angeles and Tucson.

If he does end up in the desert, this recruit knows exactly what head coach Sean Miller will expect of him.

"He wants me to just play my game," Hamilton said.
