Justin Young breaks down UA's class


Arizona's four-man 2008 recruiting class is considered to be one of the best in the country by national experts. Among those impressed with the four prospects that the UA is bringing in is Rivals.com recruiting analyst Justin Young.

The class is headlined by 6-foot-0, 170-pound Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy point guard Brandon Jennings. Rivals.com's 8th ranked player in the class, Young appreciates what Jennings is going to bring to the UA.

"Point Guard U is not going to miss a beat with Jennings coming to Tucson," Young said. "He's exciting, electric, a proven winner and he will be one of the toughest players to defend once he gets to the Pac-10. Lute Olson's style of play is perfect for him because he thrives on speed and in the transition game."

At center will be 7-foot-0, 225-pound San Diego Horizon center, who teamed with Jennings to win the Reebok Big Time tournament this past July. Rivals.com's 39th ranked player nationally will fit in well at Arizona, according to Young.
