Double Pump Tournament: Recruiting Roundup

Arizona has numerous prospects in attendance at the Double Pump Summer Tip-Off and has recruiting updates on each of them, including Isaac Hamilton, Jordan Bell, and more.

CARSON, Calif. - Arizona has a handful of prospects in attendance at the Double Pump Summer Tip-Off and WildcatAuthority was able to get a recruiting update.


Isaac Hamilton: Hamilton has played very well this week in Los Angeles and may be the top player in attendance. His recruitment has been picking up over the spring and summer and the 6-foot-4, 175-pound guard says that Arizona, USC, UCLA, and Colorado are doing the best at recruiting him at this point.

As far as Arizona, he says that future development has a lot to do with why he likes the Wildcats.

"I really like the coach," said Hamilton. "Just looking at the way they play and how he develops his players. [Arizona] has a lot of NBA players come out of the school and I would hopefully be one of them."

Arizona continues to do well with Hamilton and he keeps improving on the court.

Jordan Bell: The 6-foot-7, 200-pound forward admittedly wants to be a combo type forward at the next level, as he can be a three or four on the court for which ever school he picks to play at in college. Over the past month he has seen his recruitment expand and is hearing from Arizona, UCLA, USC, Washington, and Colorado just to name a few.

He had an interesting answer when asked about what he is looking for in a school and something that could attract more coaches.

"I'm looking for a good coaching staff," said Bell. "A staff who is not looking for just a basketball player, but cares about the player too like non-basketball wise as well as playing basketball."

As for Arizona specifically, Bell so far is seeing that with the staff.

"I like the coaches; you can really tell that they are really good guys," said Bell.

Brandon Randolph: As of now, Randolph is an option at the point guard position, but if he continues to get better on the court that could change for the better. Schools still have not offered the Inglewood native, but he has been contacted by UCLA, USC, and Arizona.

Arizona has been in contact with Randolph and the 6-foot-1, 190-pound, tough guard is still liking how he could fit in with the Wildcats.

"They said it was a good school to go to and about how good the offense is that they run," explained Randolph. "They said that the style is good to my talent and how I would fit in."

He will continue to be a player that Arizona monitors over the summer.


Parker Cartwright: One of the best point guards in attendance, no matter the class, is the small but very talented Cartwright. Standing at only 5-foot-7, 140-pounds, Cartwright has been able to stand above everyone else so far this week.

It is still early, but Cartwright is hearing from Arizona, Arizona State, Washington, and UNLV so far. A school like Arizona excels with point guards and the Los Angeles Loyola High School floor general likes what the Wildcats do with the position.

"They produce a lot of good point guards and they go to the NBA a lot," explained Cartwright. "They have always had good teams and I like the coach and I like the school too."

Expect to hear his name over the next few years, as he is a very talented point guard.


Aaron Holiday: The younger brother of Justin and Philadelphia Sixers' guard Jrue Holiday, Aaron has been the talk of the west coast so far this summer as he has put up big numbers in a lot of games. He has yet to even take a high school class, but has already proved he is an elite prospect, especially for his age.

So far, Holiday has already received word from the University of Denver, Arizona and Washington State, but you can expect that list to grow.

Again, he is young but it is hard to ignore the fact that Holiday is already dominating games.
