    A couple funny thoughts: Re a guy with a high GPA choosing Arizona (a school whose academics are denigrated on this board): Assuming the denigration is correct, this would mean that Mr. Jeter has definitely decided to put all his eggs in possible NBA success (which, of course, would have been why he decided to leave Duke - i.e., not enough stardom there for that); but he might also have noted that two of the smartest, and mentally successful guys in the NBA are Arizona grads, i.e., Steve Kerr and Andre Iguodala.

    If he averaged 2 ppg at Duke, not sure what he thinks he's going to do at Arizona, surrounded by 5 star players.

    The choice was to go to Gonzaga and have a high chance of program success and a recent strong record with transfers but a subpar league. Or Cal, with a much better league and best pt opportunity plus best academics by far but lots of question marks for the team in the next season and a new coach. Or Arizona, also with a strong record with transfers and strong projected program success but more risky from a pt standpoint.

    Bottom line, he sacrificed academics to play with the highest profile program, thinking his talent will overcome pt issues and whatever caused him to not produce in his two years at Duke.

    Good guy/student/teammate, but an unlikely NBA player. Possible upgrade teamwise. At least 'Zona's closer to home...

    This was the worst decision he could have made unless Miller has a serious recruiting slump. Regardless, why give up a Duke or Cal degree for Arizona?

    The combo of Miller plus Romar could sell bikinis to an Eskimo. Not surprised.

    The way players are shopping around for other college teams to play for when something goes wrong at their original school is destroying college basketball. How can you develop any sense of interest in a team with constant turnover every year with a new car of players?

    This has turned into "rent a team" every year. Colleges are now nothing more than a development league for the NBA, with players switching schools to get more playing time etc.

    May they not make the final four again next year.

    All of the above is true. Recruiting for the top players is very fierce. All these guys have dreams of the league. They also have handlers (AAU coaches, HS coaches, parents etc) who do not have their best interests in mind, but do have their ears. Many college coaches will encourage a player to look around if they feel that player can be adequately replaced via recruiting. No coach wants unhappy guys around their program. It invites too much outside noise from the handlers and makes for bad chemistry or worse.

    Well clearly he feels he will play there. He got another shot at recruitment and ends up at Arizona. He apparently feels that he will develop there and become an NBA prospect. Way too many folks on these boards (not necessarily you MB) place an unfounded belief that because a player is a good student that he will appreciate the Cal degree and experience. For the really highly rated players it is mostly about NBA development and NCAA tournaments. There are some guys that value the degree and appreciate what Cal can provide, but not as many as you think. You can make the league from Cal, but there are lots of coaches and handlers bad talking Cal. That Wyking is inexperienced is a factor. There will be some players that will want to see him in action and how they play etc.

    Jeter was very highly regarded coming out of HS. He got another chance to be wooed and chose the top winning program in the west. Should not come as a surprise. It also should come as no surprise to Jeter that Arizona will recruit over him in a minute. Probably already is.

    Disappointing miss for our Bears. Let's hope we land another transfer soon that can impact our team next year.

    Agree. Disappointing. I am dubious about any transfer that will make much impact for next years team. I was hopeful they were trying to pursue Cameron Johnson. Cal needs guys that can play, not just guys. Johnson would be a grad transfer with 2 years to play. He is likely headed elsewhere but that is the type of player Cal needs to pursue.

    It wouldn't have worked out anyway. CJ was wearing cargo shorts during his visit.
