Comanche gives UA center with upside

What kind of player is Arizona landing in Chance Comanche? Scout.com breaks down the 2015 Top 50 prospect.

An official visit to Arizona sealed the deal for Beverly Hills (Calif.) center Chance Comanche, as the 2015 prospect ended his recruitment with a commitment to UA.

In the 6-foot-11, 205-pound Comanche, Arizona is not only reclaiming 2015's top recruiting class nationally, but landing a prospect who has the chance to be a very good player in time.

Scout.com first watched Comanche as a rising freshman, and he was a 6-foot-5 extremely physically immature prospect who was oozing with upside.

Since that time, Comanche has slowly grown and gradually improved. Comanche has grown six inches since then and because of his consistent growth, it's been tough for him to get a whole lot stronger.

He hasn't stopped growing and he's a player with good upside who, once he finally is able to put on strength, should be able to really come into his own.

Comanche can finish with both hands in the paint and he's very comfortable facing the basket; his midrange jumper has made a big jump over the last couple years and he can either hit it off the catch or do a one-dribble pull-up.

He's an unselfish player and a good passer; if you give him the ball in the high post he knows how to throw it over the defense and into his teammate's hands.

Comanche has really improved as a shot blocker and his motor keeps getting better. He runs the floor well for a kid his size. His best rebounding comes on the offensive end, as he scores a lot of points on putbacks.

The center can hit hook shots with both hands and developing some more go-to moves with his back to the basket will be important. His feet are very good and his footwork keeps improving.

Right now Comanche doesn't always finish with contact and can be inconsistent, two issues that should be improved with strength.

Comanche still looks very young and could still be growing. Even if he's not, he's plenty tall enough, so the key for him moving forward will be adding strength and honing his skill.

There will be a strong correlation between Comanche's ability to add muscle and his production level so that will be a key to watch for him moving forward.

In landing Comanche, Sean Miller is bringing in a player who has the upside to ultimately play a big role for him. He's a talented kid with all the natural tools, and what he doesn't have can be improved at Arizona.
