Comanche to Arizona

Chance Comanche has ended his recruitment with a commitment to Arizona, giving the Wildcats four Top 50 commitments in the class.

Arizona added another talented recruit to its 2015 class with the addition of 6-foot-11, 205-pound Beverly Hills (Calif.) center Chance Comanche.'s 44th ranked prospect in his class, Comanche chose Arizona over finalists Arizona State, Connecticut, N.C. State and UCLA.

Comanche, who committed to Arizona on an official visit, told he chose the Wildcats because of his comfort level with all aspects of the program.

"I feel comfortable around the coaches and players," Comanche said. "They make me feel like I can get what I want out of life there.

"Coach (Sean) Miller and (Joe) Pasternack are great guys. They're great people that I know I'll be able to talk to and trust even after I return from college. The players are great people who have welcomed me with open arms; they're treating me like I'm part of the family already."

Comanche's mother, Melissa McGee, echoed her son's thoughts on the people around the UA basketball program.

"It was definitely the staff and program," McGee said. "From how they play to how they're developing kids, putting them in the pros. The family and camaraderie feeling among the team fits Chance perfectly.

"The coaches have a track record and they seem really sincere. Looking at the kids they've coached and how they come back shows you that."

McGee said that Arizona's recruitment of her son started as soon as he got to high school.

"That made a big difference," she said. "The relationship built in four years was important. But for me it was where my son felt most comfortable because it was his decision."

The four-star prospect feels he can make a big difference in Tucson.

"My goals are to win a national championship, become Pac-12 Player of the Year and in time hopefully get to the NBA," said Comanche.

Comanche gives the Wildcats the top-ranked recruiting class in the country, joining point guard Justin Simon, shooting guard Allonzo Trier and small forward Ray Smith.
