Humphrey getting closer

Michael Humphrey was in attendance at the Red and Blue game and will be taking an official to Arizona this weekend. Read on for an update on his recruitment, thoughts on his visit, and more.

After an intense recruiting battle, which involved many of the nation's best programs, Phoenix Sunnyslope center Michael Humphrey has narrowed his school list down to just two Pac-12 schools, Arizona and Stanford.

The 6-foot-10, 205-pound Humphrey was recently in town to catch the annual Red and Blue game, which officially kicked off the start of the much anticipated basketball season.

When asked about the game, Humphrey had nothing but good things to say about it.

"The game was awesome and I really enjoyed it a lot," Humphrey said.

What stood out the most to Humphrey was being so close to the court as well the physicality of the game.

"I really liked being so close to the court and seeing what was happening that close," he said. "The speed and how physical the game was also stood out.

"It really is a big change from the high school level, but I feel that I could play at that level next year."

After the game, Humphrey also got to go into the locker room and talk with the coaches and players.

In addition, he got to sit and talk with some of the fellow recruits as well.

"I got to talk a lot with Parker Jackson-Cartwright, Stanley Johnson and Craig Victor while I was sitting with them," Humphrey said. "They are all cool guys and I like them."

Humphrey is looking forward to his final official visit at Arizona on October 19 and wants to get that one last final look before he makes his college decision.

"I want to just take one last look around the campus, talk and get to know some of the players better, and see what it would be like to be a student at the University," he said.

Humphrey plans on making his final choice and signing with a school on November 13, the first day of the early signing period.
