A well put together prospect with an improving motor, the 6-foot-7, 205-pound forward has seen his recruitment pick up in recent weeks. A credit to the work he put in this summer.
"The main concern for me is playing with a high level of intensity," Oliver said. "Physically I feel like I can compete with anyone and when I really crash the boards I can be very effective."
With the UA coaching staff preparing for possible exodus of big men, Oliver is a recruit the staff has honed in on.
"Hearing from the number one ranked team in the country is something any recruit would want to have happen," Oliver said. "They think I might be able to fill a role for them and I plan on getting out there after the holidays to see where everything stands."
Arizona will have to sell the benefits of the school because some schools like Oregon and Gonzaga are recruiting Oliver as well.
"Both those schools have great traditions and they are close to home, so these are schools that I will have to look at as well," Oliver said.
"You look at Oregon and what they are doing and it just looks like they are on the verge of becoming a national power."
With all the new recruiting interest, Oliver is just beginning to look at his options.
"No real time frame to choose a school," Oliver said. "Some pretty good schools are coming after me and I want to give everyone a fair shot and then see where the best place for me is."
