Arizona lands its PG of the future

2/25/2013

Class of 2014 star Parker Jackson-Cartwright (Los Angeles/Loyola), the 5-foot-8 magician who masquerades as a point guard and is ranked the No. 30 prospect in the ESPN 60, committed to Arizona over UCLA on Sunday.

It had been well known since December that Jackson-Cartwright was an Arizona lean over Pac-12 rival UCLA, but the time was finally right for the playmaker to put the suspense to an end. He can now just wheel and deal for his AAU squad, Cal Supreme, and not worry about putting on an electrifying performance each and every time out -- although he'll probably end up doing that anyway.

Jackson-Cartwright is a tad on the small side, but his skill, savvy and basketball IQ are off the charts.
