Simon continues through the process

Justin Simon continues to go through the recruiting process. Read on to see where Arizona stands, his decision timeline, and more.

Temecula (Calif.) Valley 2015 combo guard Justin Simon's recruitment went national a long time ago, yet there likely hasn't been a school that has put in more work recruiting the five-star recruit than the Arizona coaching staff.

"They were just by again and anytime Coach Miller is around it's a good time," said Justin's father, Ken Simon. "They've been first-class with how they've dealt with Justin.

"They've been upfront with him about how everything fits in the style of play and that is why we have a high opinion of Coach and the program. Coach Stoudamire was there as well."

Other schools have had similar things to say.

"Florida, Connecticut and Michigan have been recruiting him and all the other schools that have been on him for a while are still there," Simon said. "They mostly say the same stuff. They like his skills and how he plays."

According to Simon, all the recruiting attention could delay a collegiate decision for a bit.

"His recruiting obviously took off sometime back, but he gets more interest all the time," Simon said. "We don't have anything scheduled. It can be overwhelming.

"There are just a lot of good schools, but at the same time I think things are starting to take shape a bit."

The recruiting attention is nice, but Simon got to this point through hard work and that isn't going to change.

"For Justin the emphasis has always been on improving his game," Ken said. "He's to the point where he feels comfortable playing with or without the ball and he goes into each game with a mindset to get better. His goal is to really establish himself this summer and play well against the best players."
