"I just felt like that was the best move for me," Dowell said. "I just really like Arizona, after watching them the past couple of years. I just like their style of play."
Dowell, a 6-foot-1 point guard, originally committed to Alabama, but decommitted from the Crimson Tide prior to the July evaluation period. He picked Arizona, despite not taking a visit to the campus.
"Coach Olson is a great coach and he's developed some of the best point guards in the league. I just feel like I can fit in, in that system."
