2008 guard already looking elite

Although 2008 is a long way off, there are a few big time players emerging in the class. One of those players is point guard Brandon Jennings. Jennings may be a few years from even thinking about committing, but he is already in the midst of recruiting.

Jennings has all the skills to be a big time point guard. He's a little on the short side but the 6-0 lefty can play. He has amazing floor sense and great quickness. The Compton-Dominguez prospect may be three years away from his senior year, but he already has a list of schools.

Jennings is currently listing Arizona, UCLA, Syracuse and Louisville. He admits he's a long ways away from making a decision and lots can happen between now and 2008.

He recently attended the Arizona Elite camp and renewed a match-up with 2007 stud Jerryd Bayless. Jennings got the best of Bayless at the NBA Players Camp, but the battle was much closer in Tucson. In addition to going up against one of the best players in the 2007 class, Jennings got to play current and former Wildcat standouts, including Jason Terry and Mike Bibby.

"It was very fun," Jennings said. "They really get after it out there."

Interestingly enough, Jennings spent almost all of his trip in Tucson either in the dorm or at McKale he saw very little of the campus in his few days in Tucson. Jennings says he likes what the Wildcats do with their offense.

"They run, they have a fast tempo," Jennings said.

That style is what Jennings is looking for in whatever school he chooses.

"If they push the ball, run," Jennings noted. "They've got to have a fast tempo."

Right now he is not listing a leader, but does admit that the Wildcats are coming at him the hardest.

2008 is a long ways off, but it would be a huge surprise if the little point guard who draws comparisons to Kenny Anderson isn't a high major prospect.
