Victor excited to get started

Craig Victor is excited to get started in Tucson. Read on to see why, his thoughts on his future role, and more.

It's not a stretch to say that incoming power forward Craig Victor is waiting anxiously for his first day at Arizona.

"I'm literally counting down the days until I get to Tucson," Victor said. "Watching them this past season was just awesome. I know we fell a little short of the goal, but hey we were ranked number one for almost the entire season.

"Each day in practice I went hard because I want to help my future team out in any way possible."

"They like the way I get after it and they want to see even more."

It was this mindset that led Victor to Findlay Prep.

"I've always heard good things about this place and the fact that a couple of Arizona guys went there and really improved made it kind of a no-brain decision for me," he said.

"It was as close to Division I training and competition that I could get. The whole experience was an eye opener. My job was to basically hit the books and get better on the court."

Meanwhile, the UA coaches kept a close eye on Victor's development.

"I heard from somebody as much as they were allowed," Victor said. "Whenever they stopped by they always checked to make sure I was working on my game and strength.

"They like how hard I play and they think that is a way that I can get on the court early."

Because of his steady contact with the coaches, Victor has a rough idea of what his role for next season will entail.

"They want me to come in and be able to guard as many positions as possible and to come in and rebound with a passion," he said.

"They like the way I get after it and they want to see even more. I can't wait to get started."
