6-foot-5, 180-pound North Hollywood (CA) Campbell Hall High School small forward Keegan Hornbuckle is not going to play for Arizona.

On Tuesday, Hornbuckle committed to Colorado, according to Scout.com's Greg Hicks. One could view the commitment as a recruiting miss for Lute Olson and the Wildcats' staff.

However, Arizona recently pulled its offer from Hornbuckle, according to sources close to the program. Apparently the staff felt that Arizona and Hornbuckle weren't good matches for each other.

In truth, Olson was the U of A coach that wanted Hornbuckle after watching him in Las Vegas. Olson offered him the scholarship himself and instructed his assistants to try and get him.

Last Sunday and Monday, Hornbuckle officially visited Arizona and afterwards it was assumed that the Wildcats led for him.

Days ago, though, the offer was pulled, leaving Hornbuckle to choose from programs such as Colorado, LMU and Penn.

Arizona is running out of 2009 targets, but some left include Anthony Stover, Angus Brandt and Andy Brown.
