Arizona prospects shine at Pangos

Arizona had numerous prospects in attendance at the Pangos camp and by all accounts they were impressive.

Arizona had numerous prospects in attendance at the Pangos camp and by all accounts they were impressive.

Will Barton: It is hard to imagine there being a better player in the country than Barton. He can get to the basket at will and if he does not feel like doing that, he will probably just pull up and hit the jumper. Kentucky is still the leader for Barton, but Arizona is going to put its all into the recruitment.

Terrence Jones: It is easy to see why Jones is emerging as one of Arizona's main targets in the class. He can play small forward or power because of his skill level. We like him at the power forward position because he poses so many problems on defense with his ability to step out as well as back his defender down. The UA is doing very wel with him and we expect the Wildcats to be in the thick of things for a while.

James Johnson: Johnson is a true face up power forward with surprising athleticism. He is very aggressive and although he did not play on Sunday, we expect his recruitment to blow up. Arizona is one of the first teams on him and from what we hear, that could play dividends.

Keala King: King is the prototypical west coast player that can do it all. He has great vision, can hit a jumper, and handle the ball as well. He probably needs to improve his shooting, but it is not at the point where it is a concern. Arizona is likely going to offer King and it would not surprise us to see the entire Pac-10 follow.

Alex Kirk: If you ignore his foot speed, Kirk is a very good prospect. Even though he is a bit slow laterally, he is very strong around the basket on both sides of the ball. He can block shots and hit a hook of his own over the opponent. He is a legit 6-foot-11 with a nice skill set and should get the offers to reflect that.
