Gordon could be Arizona's X-factor

4/2/2013

The best basketball recruit out West decided to stay out West to join the Arizona Wildcats. Forward Aaron Gordon (San Jose, Calif./Archbishop Mitty), the No. 4 overall recruit in the ESPN 100, committed to Arizona on Tuesday.

Ultimately, the Wildcats’ style of play appealed to the high-flying forward, as well as the coaching of Sean Miller and the ability to play with a team that could win a national championship.

“The style of play fits me perfect,” Gordon said. "Up-tempo on offense after we make stops on defense, and I like to defend.”

Arizona’s roster is set up to win -- and win big -- especially now with the addition of Gordon.
