What else is funny is that Texas A&M has been hot on the recruiting scene, while Maryland who hired Turgeon from A&M is not doing great.
Turgeon is not a personable man or a good recruiter.
Gary, at this time we would not take either Robinson or Hamilton if they wanted to commit. We have much better prospects in front of us for 2013!
I am wondering how much of an impact - if any - BAsh publically saying he wants to play for the Cats will make on a kid like Tarc. I am guessing it could be significant.
If any other recruit for 2012 is looking in I imagine they can seriously say to themselves and family that Arizona is likely to make a big push come March Madness in 2013.
As much as Lute produced 'great' recruiting classes after the National Championship, I find it hard to say that from a 'paper perspective' Arizona has ever been quite this loaded.
The amount of depth and 'team players' we will have at the start of the 2012 season could propel us to a number one preseason ranking.
I honestly do not know if I have ever felt as optimistic about Arizona's long term basketball prospects as I do this morning. I know all the kids still have to sign and produce on the court, but what Sean Miller is accomplishing has me pumped.

What is amazing is that just a year and a half ago ASU was 'closing the gap'. We have now opened up a gap on Kansas and UCLA.
Maryland landed Shaquille Cleare this week which is a solid pickup, but not caliber of Ashley. If Tarc doesn't commit, Miller is now in a position to hold the 4th schollie and instead make a huge push for Andrew and Aaron Harrison, or the Robinson brothers.
