Fresh off the recent commitment from the nation’s number 1 prospect, the Arizona coaching staff is right in the mix for another top 10 center in 2017 San Diego (Calif.) Cathedral Catholic big man Brandon McCoy.
McCoy was on campus this weekend and came away impressed by the visit.
“Man, the visit was really good,” McCoy said. “Being around the coaches was a great time because I was liking what they were telling me and it just seemed like a place that I could play at."
The coaching staff has also made it clear that McCoy and Ayton would easily be able to play together.
“The coaches talked about how next season Arizona would be like Florida from back in the day," McCoy said. "The way they had Noah and Horford. That could be DeAndre and me. I agree with that, too.”
McCoy stated that he intends to take a couple more visits.
“I still want to take a visit to Oregon and MIchigan State and then I’ll be able to decide where I want to go," he said.
“I’m not saying that I’m going to decide before my season starts, but I could also see myself doing that. I’m going to take my time and decide as soon as I’m ready.”
