There is news on some of the guards the Wildcats are looking at for this recruiting class, the Class of 2004. Shaun Livingston has a hurt ankle and will not participate in any events for the next two weeks. He gutted it out at the Speice Run ‘N Slam and played on the injury. The ankle, while painful, is not a long-term injury. Livingston will most likely visit Florida the last weekend in May.
Jordan Farmar is set to visit Florida in a couple weeks as well. He is supposed to be in Gainesville on the 16th. He has narrowed his schools down to the Gators, the Cats, Gonzaga and UCLA. A few weeks ago he told Cat Tracks that he hoped that UConn would get involved, but as of now the Huskies are on the outside looking in. Farmar is supposedly going to take an unofficial visit to UCLA this weekend.
Another player the Wildcat coaches have been taking a look at is Josh Heytvelt. The 6-8 power forward from Clarkson, WA is starting to gain major attention. Heytvelt is an intriguing, athletic player who is reminiscent of many of the athletic big men who have developed in Lute Olson's system. Heytvelt is said to be interested in Gonzaga, Washington and UCLA, but it will be interesting to see if Arizona picks up steam if they crank up the interest.
