"Generally speaking," Cat Tracks reporter Aaron Jones said. "Having recruits move their visit dates up to earlier in the fall is good news. (Shakur) must be pretty excited about Arizona and in coach Olson. Everything I've been hearing lately is that it's Arizona and Villanova and that Mustafa really likes Arizona's reputation for producing guards that find employment in the NBA."
