    Remember when Greg Hansen said that Miller would never be able to recruit at a high level ever again? He landed the two top PGs in the west in a matter of 4 months.

    Stay hacking, Greg.

    Josh will be at the Red/Blue game and Nico will be there too.

    Really nice get. if it's true about Green as well that's a huge one, love that kid. People elsewhere are saying UA is all over Christian Koloko now too. Koloko is intriguing 7 foot with length but he's so skinny and very raw so he's more of a project big. UCLA has been recruiting him too I sort of assumed just because he plays for Sierra Canyon and they have several other kids on that roster.

    Koloko is sounding like a lock. Arizona can probably strike out on all the other highly ranked guys and get by with what they have given the depth (on paper). If Miller is true to his word about a change in style then recruiting could be back no normal for 2020. They also have a 6’9” grad transfer coming in from Cornell and a highly doubt guys like Jeter, Akot and Randolph will be NBA bound. Two of those guys needs to take a leap and there’s still Ira Lee, Devon Doutrive, Omar Thielemans and Alex Barcello. If Josh Green comes in I could see two transfers.

    Green is almost assuredly a one and done but the good kind of one and done because he plays a style of ball that you can fit into a team. He's a scorer yes, but he's not one of those guys who is a ball stopper he scores within a team concept.

    Local kid lists AZ in top-4 and probably leads. He looks to have some serious athletic upside.

    +4” wingspan and room for growth. Not sure why his ranking dropped to 3*, but he’s better than that. Needs to hit the weight room. Great pickup

    Looks like he needs to really hit the weight room, looks like a 3 year player so at least Miller looks to be adding stability to the roster rather than strictly adding OAD's and dealing with constant turnover year after year.

    He's very long but he's not very skilled offensively and when scouts do rankings they tend to rank HS players more on offense than defense.

    He shoots a jumper almost flat footed, doesn't really jump, has limited post moves and has a developing hook shot, and he's very right handed at the moment. None of which is a surprise he's from Cameroon and has only been playing for a few years. He's a good long term get, good student, works hard so you figure he'll get better. But right now his rating is neither a surprise or a deterrent to taking him he's a project with good upside.

    No downside here. If he pans and surprises he’s great length.

    Looks like he has a good frame to add weight too
