Arizona head coach Sean Miller met with media on Thursday in order to discuss the 2009 class.

Kevin Parrom was the last recruit that Miller signed for '09 unless some sort of miracle happens and the staff decides to recruit Lance Stephenson.

As far as he goes, Miller likes him because he is able to do numerous things once on the court.

"Kevin is an extremely versatile wing player," said Miller. "He excels in transition because he can see the floor as a passer and also use his dribble in an effective way. His versatility will allow him to play multiple positions at Arizona, which is a quality that will help build our teams for the future."

Parrom will likely contribute right away, but no player may contribute as much as Kryrl Natyazhko.

"Kryrl is blessed with great size," said Miller. "For a young person, he is physically advanced. This will help his transition to Arizona significantly. He is also very skilled for a frontcourt player, which allows him to fit into our style of play from day one."

The recruit that most are extremely excited about is Solomon Hill due in large part to the fact that he was seemingly always meant to go to the UA, even when it looked as if he would be going to SC.

Hill will seemingly start on the wing, although Miller is not sure which one just yet.

"Solomon has the skills and size to play both wing positions in our program," said Miller. "He is an excellent passer and knows how to score in a variety of ways. He is also a great competitor. His style of play allows him to become a tough match up for our opponents and a great fit for Arizona basketball."

While it remains to be seen how strong the class will be once it leaves school, Miller and company are happy with what it should bring to the UA.
