Saturday Is The Day
Springfield (IL) Lanphier small forward Andre Iguodala will announce his college choice on Saturday at the Wendy's Windy City game in Chicago.
Iguodala confirmed that the selection would be Arizona. Future teammates Hassan Adams and Chris Rodgers participated in Thursday's game as well.
Iguodala signed with Arkansas in the fall but received his release from the school following the departure of Nolan Richardson. Arizona, as we reported days after the firing of Richardson, was his choice since the situation with Arkansas went sour.
Iguodala was generally appreciative of the final phone call he had with Arizona after committing to the Hogs last fall. Arizona assistant coach and now Oregon State head coach Jay John told Iguodala there would always be a place for him in Tucson.
Turns out there was.
