Alex Jacobson: Pac-10 Bound

Alex Jacobson didn't need to see any more after watching Midnight Madness this past weekend. The 7-footer ended his recruitment on Monday.

The Mater Dei connection continues for Arizona with Alex Jacobson.

The 7-foot, 220-pound junior big man from Mater Dei committed to the Wildcats shortly after taking an unofficial visit to Tucson for Midnight Madness this past weekend, according to sources close to the situation.

Jacobson, who averaged 10 points, eight boards and four blocks per game as a sophomore, also considered UCLA and USC.

Arizona coach Lute Olson has had success with Mater Dei products. Miles Simon and Reggie Geary were both standout guards with the Wildcats and both were recently hired on Arizona's staff.

Jacobson possesses good size and is rapidly improving. He still needs to refine his low-post moves.
