Monty wants a big body to play with a back to the basket game. AZ is loaded up front, and PT will be very sparse for a long time. If TheRise is right and AZ signs Gordon, then PT at AZ will be even harder to come by.
At Cal, he would get on the court early and often and wrap up Cal's Monster Recruiting Class....here's what espn says:
...Arizona, Arizona State, Cal and Washington are the four schools the 7-footer is considering, and Rooks' Gamepoint AAU head coach Anthony Bolton tells the website that he anticipates a decision could be made very soon.
"He'll take this week to sit down, relax and think about what he wants to do," said Bolton. "Sometime next week he'll probably be ready to make an announcement. I think he'll have a decision before Christmas."
So where will Rooks end up? Just speculating here, but since his father and longtime NBA big man Sean Rooks played at Arizona one has to believe the Wildcats could be the odds-on favorite here. And of the other three Pac-12 schools, we have to believe that Cal has the biggest need for help up front since ASU (Jordan Bachynski) and UW (Shawn Kemp, Jr./Gilles Dierickx) will both be set at that spot in 2013-14.
