Fultz keeping an eye on Arizona

Arizona recently offered 2016 guard Markelle Fultz. Read on to see where Arizona stands, who else is involved, and more.

After an impressive performance in front of an Arizona assistant, the Wildcats offered Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha Catholic junior guard Markelle Fultz.

In fact, Fultz has seen his recruitment pick up as of late and has been playing well.

“I have a lot to improve on, but as of right now the season is going well,” Fultz said. “I am scoring well, playing defense, and we’re winning, so I can’t complain.”

When asked to describe why he thinks he is being recruited at a high level, Fultz is able to point to numerous factors.

“I am very versatile and feel I can play the one through four,” he said. “I love to play defense, but I can also shoot the three, pull up, or dunk.

“I am an all-around player and you have something to watch our for when you play against me.”

Fultz is not lying when he says he can play numerous positions, but he ideally sees himself at the point.

“I am being recruited as a one and two, but most people feel I am a better one so that is probably the position I see myself playing more,” he said.

Arizona is among numerous schools that has offered Fultz.

“Georgetown, Maryland, Xavier, DePaul, Cincinnati, Towson, Washington, and Arizona have all offered me,” he said.

“I have talked with Arizona and I like the way they play. I have been researching them more since they offered me, but I like what I see so far.”

As Fultz looks at the schools recruiting him, he has a good idea of what he wants.

“Basically education,” he said. “Basketball won’t be there forever, so that is important. Also a school that will prepare me for the next level and help me get paid for what I love to do.”

There are currently no specific plans for Fultz to visit any schools, but it is inevitable.

“As of right now I want to visit all the schools recruiting me,” he said. “I wish I could take an official visit to all of the schools recruiting me, but I don’t have anything planned. Location won’t be a factor though.”
