Rising forward looking at Arizona

2014 forward Kameron Chatman is seeing his recruiting attention increase. Read on for his thoughts on Arizona, who the favorite could be, and more.

Long Beach (Calif.) Poly forward Kameron Chatman is a rising junior and it is no surprise that Pac-12 schools are taking note.

The 6-foot-6, 175-pound 2014 three-star has received recruiting attention from a variety of schools and is seeing his offer list increase.

"I know Memphis and Arizona have offered and then I am not sure of who exactly the other schools are," Chatman said. "I know that Arizona, Washington, Oregon, the Pac-12 mostly, Marquette, Memphis, and LSU are recruiting me and that is pretty much it right now."

While Chatman is not naming any favorites, he does admit that he is impressed with Arizona because of its connection with his former home.

"I really like the program," he said. "Being a Portland native, I know about Salim and Damon Stoudamire and the whole program, so that is a big offer for me."

As Chatman goes through the process, he has a good idea of what he will be looking for in a school.

"Anybody would be looking for education, because you have to have a plan B if basketball does not work out," Chatman said. "I will mostly be looking at the style of play. Also having a good relationship with the coaching staff will be important."

In terms of style of play, Chatman will be looking for more of a high-paced offense, but feels he can succeed in any style.

"I like to run because I like to get my teammates in the game, so I like to push it up the court," he said. "However, I can do fine with half court plays when we have to do that too."

Chatman is keeping quiet about the schools he is looking at the hardest, but it is no secret that Washington is likely the school to beat due in large part to a family connection.

"Coach Jim Shaw has been in my life since I was like three years old, so I really have a good relationship with him," he said. "I don't want to say too much because I want to keep everything open, but it helps Washington."
