Arizona impresses five-star guard

Arizona hosted 2013 five-star guard Tyler Ennis on an unofficial visit this past weekend. Read on to see his impressions, where the Wildcats stand, and more.

It is no secret that Arizona is in need of a point guard for 2013 and the guard that is on top of its list is 6-foot-2, 175-pound Newark (NJ) St. Benedict Prep point guard Tyler Ennis.

Ennis was in town for the UCLA game and came away impressed with what the Wildcats had to offer.

"The visit went well," Ennis said. "I enjoyed it a lot. I got to see the game and campus and get a good understanding of how Arizona is."

While some may assume that location could be a factor in Ennis' recruitment, the five-star guard says it helped present one of the most impressive aspects of his visit.

"Probably the location and weather," Ennis says of what impressed him the most. "Coming from the east coast, you don't get weather like that this time of year. Also being able to be in shorts and a t-shirt right after the game was great."

In addition, Ennis was able to sit down with Arizona's coaching staff and discuss how he would fit in with the program.

"They told me I would fit in well," Ennis said. "Everything they do with their point guard I would be able to do and they explained to me the situation with playing time and recruits coming in and what it would be like."

Now that Ennis is done with his visit to Arizona, he says that he will take some time off from the recruiting process for now.

"I think I just want to lay low for now," he said. "I don't have anything scheduled and have not decided what other schools I will visit if I even decide to visit any other schools."

Now that Ennis is taking some time off, where does Arizona stand?

"I would say that Syracuse and Arizona stick out, but that is mostly because those are my only two visits I have taken," Ennis said. "Those impressed me the most because I saw them up close, so I will have to see how other schools compare to those if I take any more visits."
