Riley taking his time

Cody Riley is one of the top players in 2017. Read on for his thoughts on his recruitment, Arizona, and more.

He may only be a freshman, but 6-foot-7, 215-pound Chatsworth (Calif.) Sierra Canyon forward Cody Riley is getting attention from the best schools in the country.

"Kansas, Arizona, USC, UCLA, and UConn have offered and there are a lot of other schools that are looking at me," Riley said. "Right now there are no schools that stick out."

Riley is playing with California Supreme on the EYBL circuit and much of that has to do with the challenge it brings.

"The main benefit is to play against the best players and everybody told me the EYBL has the best players and I like that kind of competition," he said. "I just want to play my game how I like to play it and the coaches can see what they would get."

One school that checked Riley out was Arizona and Riley is impressed with what the Wildcats have to offer.

"I just like how Arizona has been playing lately," Riley said. "I have also developed a good relationship with the head coach."

Due to the fact that Riley has a long way to go in his recruitment, he is choosing not to get too caught up in it.

"I'm not really paying a lot of attention to it right now because I have a long way to go, but there are a lot of schools on me," he said. "I just have to stay level headed and keep working to get better."

Still, Riley knows what he wants in his future school and although nothing specific is planned, has one visit in mind.

"I am looking at the overall feel for the school, what type of coaching, and how the team plays," Riley said.

"I definitely want to take my time. I don't have any visits planned, but I should be taking one to Arizona this summer."
