Chol signs LOI, waiting on father

Wildcat fans can breathe a sigh of relief. The fourth and final piece of the Wildcat recruiting class is now signed and official.

Angelo Chol confirmed on Monday night.

“Signed my LOI today,” Chol said via Twitter.

“I’m official,” he added, though he is still waiting on his father's signature to actually fax in the document.

Chol was set to fax in his LOI on the first day of the spring signing period, but there was a hang-up since Chol’s father was in the Sudan and was difficult to reach. The NCAA required both parents signatures on the document before it could be made official.

As per the Arizona Daily Star's Bruce Pascoe, Chol is hoping to get his father to sign the document before the end of the spring signing period on May 20th, but if that does not happen Chol can still sign financial aid agreement papers with the school, which binds the school to Chol, but does not bing Chol to the school.

That being said, both Chol and his high school coach insist he is firmly committed to the Wildcat program and one source familiar with the situation says that yesterday's signing was Chol's way of further enhancing his commitment to the Wildcats.

Neither the University nor Sean Miller can comment on Chol until they are in possession of the signed document.

Chol rounds out a four-man recruiting class with Nick Johnson, Sidiki Johnson and Josiah Turner.

247Sports ranked Turner as the 13th best player in the nation, with Nick Johnson (26th) and Chol (69th) cracking the top-100 and Sidki Johnson (118th) just missing out.
