Recruiting Notes: UA gets 2009 commitment

Despite not having a head coach, Arizona basketball recruiting isn't completely dead, as assistant Reggie Geary continues to work hard behind the scenes.

Despite not having a head coach, Arizona basketball recruiting isn't completely dead, as assistant Reggie Geary continues to work hard behind the scenes.

Here are some notes:

  • Tremayne Johnson, a 6-7 forward from Los Angeles Southwest Community College, verbally committed to play basketball for the Wildcats. His scholarship will depend on whether or not Arizona's next head coach decides he wants him.

    Johnson was previously committed to San Francisco but opted not to go there. He is redshirting this season so he'll have three years of eligibility remaining.

  • Arizona could be the favorite to land Victor Rudd, a combo forward from Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nevada. Rudd has several other offers and won't make a decision for a couple of months.

  • Arizona's next coach could still opt to pursue Solomon Hill, who originally committed to UA but then pledged to USC. Unlike prior UA commits Abdul Gaddy and Mike Moser, he remains unsigned.

  • The Wildcats seem to have picked up the pace on Terrell Stoglin, a 2010 point guard from Tucson Santa Rita. It will be interesting to see if Arizona offers.

  • Geary is recruiting junior colleges in states such as Texas, Idaho, California and Florida, looking for talent that can come right in and make an impact.
