The Elite 8 in the Desert took place Saturday and here are the thoughts that we have following the action.
Alex Kirk: Kirk is definitely underrated and we expect teams to learn about him sooner than later. At 6-10, 230-pounds, Kirk is already physically able to contribute in college.
He has a good shooting touch and is able to catch the ball softly in the post. Kirk should be a top priority for the Wildcats.
Terrell Stoglin: Stoglin is inconsistent, but he can score the ball. Physically we question whether or not he will be successful at the next level, but Maryland feels it is worth the chance.
Arizona will likely take another look at him, but it will be difficult for him to stand out from the elite guards that the UA will likely recruit.
Bryce Jones: The Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft shooting guard is going to blow up this summer, so the UA would be smart to get on him quickly. Jones is inconsistent offensively, but he has the ability to get to the basket.
He holds promise defensively, but his ability to score in bunches is what impressed us the most. We expect Arizona to offer if he is even close to as impressive as he was this weekend.
Richard Solomon: If the Solomon we saw this weekend is the same player that has been blowing up as of late, we are a bit confused. He has potential, especially since he is still growing. However, he has no refined offensive game and seems to be so raw that we can't see him contributing right away in college.
The potential is there right now, but the skill level is not. He claims an Arizona offer, but it will be interesting to see how seriously the Wildcats recruit him right away.
That is it for 2010 and we will have a 2011 update on Tuesday.
