2008 Introduction: Niko Sachs

Niko Sachs, a 6-4 slashing junior wing from Arizona, was impressive this past fall at the Arizona Prep Fall Showcase. He told us recently that he's hearing from some schools in the Pac-10, Mountain West and Big West...

Niko Sachs, 6-4 JR SG/SF Glendale (Ariz.) Cactus, is a very good defender and has the ability to get to the rim off the wing. His jumpshot is still a work in progress, though, and his development in that area will likely determine his ultimate level.

We spoke with Sachs recently and he gave us a list of schools that have been in contact with him.

"Oregon State, UC Irvine, Oregon and New Mexico have been the main ones," said Sachs.

Sachs is not very far along in his recruitment and he didn't have a lot to say about his recruitment to date.

He did mention that he'd like to stay close to home and early playing time is not a big consideration for him.

No schools have offered yet and Sachs said he isn't sure which schools he'd like to visit.

Since he's still in the early stages of his recruitment, Sachs doesn't see himself choosing a school anytime soon.

"I'll probably go through the summer," said Sachs.

Sachs told us he currently has a GPA of around 2.2.
