Arizona looking at New Orleans Elite duo

Arizona is looking at two highly rated forwards that play for the New Orleans Elite AAU squad. Read on to see what Craig Victor and Kelly Oubre think of Arizona, their overall recruitment, and more.

Arizona had an assistant present at numerous New Orleans Elite games this past evaluation period.

New Orleans St. Augustine forward Craig Victor figures to be one of Arizona's top priorities for the class of 2014. Fortunately for Arizona, the feeling is mutual with the 6-foot-8, 215-pound five-star.

"I like Arizona," Victor said. "Honestly, I don't know too much about them, but they have a good reputation and a good coaching staff. I would like to learn more."

Although many prospects spend the summer trying to gain the attention of college recruiters, Victor has one goal for this summer.

"I'm focusing solely on basketball this summer," Victor said. "I really want to show coaches I can defend all over the court. I'm obviously working on shooting and ball-handling, but defense is my top priority."

Victor has a rough idea of when he would like to decide on a school.

"I'm not going to make any decisions on eliminating schools until next summer," Victor said. "After that, things will probably pick up and I'll get close to making a decision."

In addition to Victor, one of the better prospects in the 2014 class is Richmond (Texas) George Bush small forward Kelly Oubre. The 6-foot-6, 195-pound four-star is an explosive scorer who is only scratching the surface of his potential.

Although he's one of the better players in the country, Oubre's recruitment is in its early stages.

"I'm going to cut my list down to 10 sometime here," Oubre said. "Arizona will definitely be on that list. They've gotten good players and the coaching staff seems really cool and professional. It's a school I can for sure see myself visiting."

Currently, visiting schools is not the top priority for Oubre.

"Becoming a better shooter and ball handler are the things that I'm thinking about most," Oubre said. "I feel I have good size and can get my shot off, so it's important for me to be able to make the shots."

Don't expect Oubre to make a decision any time soon.

"I can't really give you an accurate time frame for when I would like to make a decision," Oubre said. "There are a lot of good schools recruiting me."
