Jackson-Cartwright visiting Arizona

Parker Jackson-Cartwright is one of Arizona's top priorities. Read on for an update on his recruitment, including a visit date to Arizona, what he is looking for, and more.

Los Angeles Loyola point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright has become one of Arizona's top priorities regardless of the class.

The 5-foot-7, 2014 point guard has been playing well in the Nike EYBL, although he admits it has been different for him.

"It has been going well," Jackson-Cartwright said. "It is an adjustment because everybody is bigger and a little bit stronger and faster. I just have to keep doing what I do, which is getting into the lane and creating for myself and other people."

Jackson-Cartwright is taking the approach of not having much to prove, as he wants to approach the EYBL in a more fun manner.

"Every game is a battle," he said. "I am not proving myself, but I want to keep giving more effort than my opponent. I am just trying to have fun and get wins for my team."

As far as recruiting goes, there have not been a lot of changes for the point guard due in large part to the fact that plenty of schools still want him.

"Coaches are still on me right now," Jackson-Cartwright said. "It is stressful sometimes, but it will be worth it in the end. Arizona, UCLA, USC, some of the more local schools, and UConn are the main schools I am hearing from."

Jackson-Cartwright is visiting Arizona on June 18 and as he takes that visit and others, he has a good idea of what he will be looking for.

"Just if I can come in and maybe not start or play the most minutes, but if I can play my game," he said. "I would like a coaching staff that is going to let me go and do things that I know how to do. Also a big city. I am from Los Angeles, so I like a big city and then good academics and things like that."

There were rumors that Jackson-Cartwright could make an earlier decision than originally expected, but he says he now has a timetable for when he would like to decide.

"My dad and I talked about it," he said. "I am thinking that next year during Peach Jam or after is the best time."
