York enjoys Arizona visit

Gabe York had an opportunity to watch the Red-Blue game in person on Saturday. Read on for his reaction to the visit, how he recruited Kaleb Tarczewski, and more.

Arizona commit Gabe York did not have any doubts about his decision to go to Arizona and, if anything, his visit this weekend only made his commitment stronger.

York was able to see Arizona's Red and Blue game and spend time with numerous other recruits, something that he enjoyed plenty.

"It went really well," York said. "The players were great. I got along with them really well and obviously I got closer with Brandon Ashley, Grant Jerrett , and then Kaleb Tarczewski had a very great time, so overall it was definitely a good experience."

For York, the highlight was being in a full McKale Center, as he got to experience what he will be playing in front of in the future.

"I would probably just say being able to go in and see the Red and Blue game and sitting down in front of 14,500 fans screaming for Arizona and how much support they have there," York said of what his top highlight was.

"Just when we were walking around people were chanting our name and you can definitely tell it was a basketball town."

York has been to Arizona twice before, but was still able to experience something new, as some renovations have been done since the last time he was in Tucson.

"I have been there twice before, but the first thing I got to see was the hallway with all the players and awards and everything. Everything was done and that was really great. Last time I was there it was under construction."

In addition, York was able to see many former Arizona players come back to McKale, though NCAA rules did not allow much interaction.

"That was great too," he said. "Obviously I didn't get to talk to them and that sucked a little, but all of them have had good careers in the NBA and just to sit there and see them get honored and Jason Terry coming out and still wearing Wildcat stuff was great."

With York being among the rest of the 2012 class, he made sure that they all worked on the one player that Arizona is looking to close the class with.

"All weekend we were definitely pushing Arizona to Kaleb," York said. "When anything great happened we always told him that is what he has to look forward to."
