No quick decision

The Wildcats hosted two top-100 recruits this weekend. Kyle Singler and Solomon Alabi spent three days in Tucson. The Wildcats did not receive any verbal commitments but things seem to have gone well.

Although the Wildcats already have a top-5 recruiting class, the chance to bring in a top-10 player or 7-1 center is too great not to pursue.

Singler and Alabi came to Tucson and had a fairly standard recruiting weekend. The players were given tours of campus and the McKale facilities. Later on Friday they watched the Wildcats work out before playing pick-up.

There was a lot of time spent interacting with the current team, including going to Saturday night's football game.

Singler has not spoken much to the media, but sources close to the recruitment believe the visit went very well. We've been told that no decision will be made until after he visits Duke next weekend. Those we spoke with believed he was still planning on taking a visit to Kansas in October, but only the Duke visit is 100%.

All indications are that Alabi also had a good visit. Like with Singler, sources close to Alabi say he will visit Florida State next weekend before there is any chance for a decision. He has previously taken an official visit to Virginia.

The Wildcats already have verbal commitments from guard Laval Lucas-Perry, guard Jerryd Bayless, wing Jamelle Horne, wing Zane Johnson and center Alex Jacobson.

We'll have more on the individual visits Tuesday afternoon and evening.
