Prospects continue to emerge out west for the 2014 class and one of the top point guards of the group is 5-foot-7, 140-pound Los Angeles Loyola point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright.
Although he's short, Cartwright makes up for it with his quickness, vision and handles, all three attributes he brings to the court at a high level.
Cartwright is happy with how his game has come along over the past year.
"I was a little passive and didn't take shots I should have when I was wide open," Cartwright said. "I think I knock down open shots now and I'm confident in my game.
"I've grown as a player. I just push the ball and try to get everybody involved first. I take what's given to me as far as opportunities to the basket. I just like creating for everybody."
To date, Cartwright has heard from Arizona, Arizona State and UCLA. Of those three schools, one definitely stands out for him.
"UCLA," Cartwright said. "They're local, it's a big school, I've met (Ben Howland) and he's a good coach, I've been to some of their games and I just like the way they play."
If UCLA were to offer Cartwright, would he accept?
"I would take it into real consideration," he said "I would think about it."
