Natyazhko commits

Kyryl Natyazhko made the decision to come to Arizona at the Derby Classic on Saturday.

Earlier in the week, everybody knew that Kyryl Natyazhko would probably be deciding this weekend.

His coach at IMG, Vince Walden, told Scout.com, "He's really intrigued by Arizona. He's going to come down to Arizona and Arizona State. In terms of momentum Arizona is high and Arizona State is second."

That statement could not have been more true.

The 68th best player in the country made the decision to come to Arizona due mostly to the fact that he found a strong relationship with Sean Miller and company.

Miller and assistant James Whitford recruited Natyazhko at Xavier and did not hesitate to do the same at Arizona.

Although he has not yet seen the campus, the relationship that Natyazhko has with the staff proved to be too much and he felt as if a visit was not needed.

Natyazhko's commit is huge for Arizona, as it shows that the recruiting process will not likely be as long as many think. By getting one of the better players in the country, Miller has let the rest of the nation know that he will be a force to be reckoned with at Arizona.
