Cats may be interested again

Arizona coaches have spent the past few weeks evaluating combo guards. They are actively pursuing a player who can play with and eventually replace Mustafa Shakur. Their search may have them taking a second look at a familiar face.

A year ago Harvey Perry Jr. made no secret that he liked Arizona, but the Wildcats were not sure about the big guard from Las Vegas. After they and a few other schools backed off the Perry family decided to head to a prep school in order to get better offers. That move seems to have paid off as it looks like Perry Jr. may be back in the Wildcats' sights.

Perry Jr. has played very well in recent events and did so with Arizona coaches in attendance. It sounds as if the Wildcats may be trying to get back involved with the talented player who can play three positions.

Perry Jr.'s father confirmed that he has heard from the Wildcats again, but isn't ready to list any favorites. After last year's topsy-turvy recruiting battles, the family is being cautious.

"We know how to play the game this time around," Perry Sr. said.

His son has been listing various teams, but Perry Sr. says that no clear leader and that they will explore all their options.

"There are no leaders, no front runners, everyone is even," Perry Sr. said. "We are not thinking about recruiting until August or late July."

We spoke at length with Perry Sr. and will have more on his son's recruitment and development this evening.
