La Mirada's Derrick Williams picks Arizona!

New Arizona basketball coach Sean Miller has added to his already impressive first recruiting class. Derrick Williams, the 6'8, 215 lb power forward out of La Mirada High School in La Mirada, CA. has now committed to the University of Arizona to play basketball for the Wildcats this upcoming Fall. A former USC recruit, who was let out of his letter of intent, Williams chose Arizona over Memphis so he could stay West. With Jordan Hill having left for the NBA, power forward was a position that was most depleted entering the off-season for the Wildcats, and did they ever get a jewel in Williams. Williams will provide some much needed depth on the Wildcat frontline along with some scoring and rebounding. As a senior at La Mirada High School, Williams averaged 25 points to go with over 10 boards a game and led his team in steals and blocks. This kid should fit in nicely with what head coach Sean Miller wants to accomplish in the Fall -- watch out Pac 10.
